If so many people have this problem, it's probably a --serious---, unattended problem.

It may have something to do with the window within the window problem, which to me is a serious problem, and surely one that causes this issue, as well as the tedious issue of trying to get back to where you were before the system moved you all over the place.  Motto: let no scrolling window be placed within another scrolling window!
This is a frequent question, but it is not a technical issue with GEDCOMpare -- and it does not have to do with the scrolling window features.

The problem is related to widespread misunderstanding regarding the function of the checkbox that marks a GEDCOM entry as 'completed.'
I think it has more to do with the pages of the main suggestion window.  Sometimes it is not clear what page one is on... beyond 500 entries or not.  The multiple scrolling windows do NOT help.  I looked a half dozen times for the invisible open suggestions, and looked on the 2nd page of the hints as well, and missed them nonetheless.  It took quite some time to uncover the mystery.  Checkboxes? I doubt many know when they do.  Also, there should never be "widespread misunderstandings", should there?

Hi Patricia, you've hidden the matches that you need to check. Click the "Show Completed Rows" button to see them.
