Re: [dejavu-l] Auto-Propagate function
- Especially in cases where duplicates have codes and numbers, it might
be useful to check them all together with the alphabetic view. Codes
can sometimes move around in the propagated phrase, and fuzzy
duplicates with numbers might turn out funny. Even if everything was
OK in the first propagated duplicate (second instance of this phrase)
when passing it, this might be changed when coming to the next one if
something is not ok there, and you change that and finish it with
autopropagate. Then the previous not finished duplicate might change.
