This question has been asked lots of times but I cannot find a relevant answer.
A lot of the work I'm doing at the moment involves making new connections between established profiles. Frequently, but not always, when I seek to connect a new profile to an established profile I get "Error: Invalid data. The following must be corrected. Invalid WikiTree ID" Problem is I'm using copy/paste and the ID is not invalid.
Sometimes, if I try it the other way round, it works straight away. Sometimes I have to wait. I thought it was because one of the ids was new and somehow the system takes too long to know about it. But it happened recently between two well established profiles.
This is very annoying. I'm accustomed to it (but don't like it) but I was very confused at first. A warning that makes sense would be preferable.
