      Because FamilySearch is keeping nFS in sync with Family Tree, you are never "only accessing nFS." Almost anything you do to new.FamilySearch also affects Family Tree. As I understand it, if you are trying to Merge records in Family Tree that would cause an IOUS in new.FamilySearch, this will not be allowed at this time. I don't know all of the conditions required for FamilySearch to allow a merge/combine.

      It would be helpful if I could see some details about what actions result in these errors.

      All attempts to merge/combine records in AQ have resulted in errors
      stating that they cannot be performed in Family Tree allthough I am
      only accessing nFS. So what's up? --- Terry

Rather, if you go through the same processes in AQ to either Link records, or Search for Duplicates, and find duplicates in FamilySearch, you can still use the "Combine" button. When you do, AQ will not actually do a Combine, but rather it will bring up FamilySearch in your browser to the Merge screen, and will put the IDs of the two records that you have identified as duplicates. You will still have to complete the Merge process in Family Tree, but at least you were able to use the tools in AQ to determine the duplicates.
