All pages have the "merge" prompt at the bottom

I find that there is an orange “merge” lozenge at the bottom of all of my pages suggesting that there is another document with the same name. This isn’t true. Is this a bug or am I misunderstanding this lozenge ?

It is supposed to be if there is another rem anywhere in your KB with the exact phrasing used before. So it would not be limited to the name of a document but any rem with that exact phrasing

Aside from that it sounds like you are understanding correctly if I am understanding you properly



So to be clear, you also have the Merge button on the first screenshot?

Yes, I had the situation where the merge button was appearing in the first screenshot. It may be coincidental but it was on a lot of rems that were headers and had an emoji as the first character. Today, as an experiment, I checked half a dozen of them and they all had the merge button. I then logged out and logged back in again and the merge button is no longer there. I’ve had a number of issues (which sadly i can’t provide steps guaranteed to reproduce them) where the in memory index seems to get out of wack i.e.

  • search not finding nodes I entered a few moments ago,
  • nodes indicating references exist even though I have deleted those references (especially after moving a node and deleting the portal left behind - the moved node still says it is referenced on the original page),
  • suggesting nodes are duplicates that aren’t.

All of these issues are resolved by logging out and logging in again which I presume refreshes any in-memory indices / caches.

I realise this report isn’t very helpful to the dev’s since I can’t reliably reproduce the problem. If I ever figure out a reliable way to reproduce it I will post back here.

@dcoales I should say that I have at times experienced this fleetingly as well. But haven’t been able to reproduce it at all. Good thinking about posting this as a feedback, rather than a bug report at this point.
Less work for the mods :slight_smile:
really appreciate the behaviour! Have a great day!
