The magnifyer fills the whole Tree View

Hi
I happened in the treeview to increase the magnifyer window to the full size of the treeview window over the lower scroll bar. Now it is impossible to reduce the size of the magnifyer. The pointer will not get the corner of the magnifyer.
I can only switch it off. :(
Any idea?

Re: Merging records in a single gedcom

Hello Melsonr

A work around to merge single entities is to open both entries and to copy the data by hand.
(Yes, you can run two GenJ in parallel.)
But be sure to properly re-assign the relationships to other entities.
