[5.0 Beta] Merge duplicates is not merging correctly (Update: user error)

edited April 20, 2017
I tried merging duplicate journal articles, keeping the older entry as master. When I merge, the newer entry is deleted (as it should) but it's contents are not merged in to the older(master) entry for fields that are missing in the older entry.

5.0-beta.182+d472752 on Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit
  • That's never how this has worked.
    You need to select each field that's different from the master article used for merge by clicking on the icon on the right.
  • Oops, yes, I forgot about that completely since the prevent duplicates plug-in has spoilt me. Tested and working as expected. Thanks for the reminder.
