Thanks for following up. Your service to me has always been prompt, courteous, and effective. <aside to all> I have, use, and hardily recommend using IXgen; I'm a satisfied customer. </aside to all> Murray, it was evident to me that you do not have IXgen. Not all of us are fortunate enough to have it. Hence, the procedure I posted. Having some time ago used the procedure Frank presented below, I was mystified when (after I deleted the offending marker) from the source file, FrameMaker still showed a marker in the same place. Being curious, I sorted things out for myself and do my best to avoid having stacks of markers. Through entropy (that is, human error, "LAN interference," and whatever) strange things happen, so (from time to time) I remind myself that: "There are certain practical limits to the application of technology."

The marker appears highlighted. Remember that the marker Maybe I missed something here, but you can also always turn on hypertext linking when doing a generate/update. Then from the new index doc go to the whacky entries and control-alt-click on their page numbers one by one -- the control-alt-click will jump you back to the source doc and that marker will be selected, whether you can see the selection or not. Press DEL. Unless it really is the horror marker from Brimstone Regions, it oughtta go away. If not, we'd still like to see the doc. (One shameless plug of a side note: IXgen can make clustered markers very easy to see, either in context in the body text, or in a sorted or unsorted listing document that you can edit and then "return" to the source markers.)
