Very Minor Fault/Flaw: NOTES. Not possible to add EXACT duplicate of a NOTE within NOTES Section; but, system still allows going thru motion

"FamilySearch"

Fault/Flaw:

Please be advised that although it is NOT possible to "Add" EXACT "Duplicates" of a "Note" within the "Notes" Section, there is a very Minor Fault/Flaw within the "Notes" Section that allows the "Creation" and "Saving" (But, NOT "Adding") of EXACT "Duplicates" of existing "Notes" within the "Notes" Section.

There is NO "Indication" or "Warning" Message that a new "Note" that is being "Created" is an EXACT "Duplicate" of an existing "Note" within the "Notes" Section, while "Saving" the "Note" being entered.

And, when the "Save" is "Selected", for all intensive purposes, the User/Patron will consider that the newly entered "Note" has been "Saved" and "Added" to/within the "Notes" Section.

Fortunately, the newly created "Note", that is an EXACT "Duplicate" of an existing "Note" within the "Notes" Section; is, NOT actually "Saved" and NOT added to the "Notes" Section; plus, there is NO reference to that newly created "Note", that is an EXACT "Duplicate" of an existing "Note" within the "Notes" Section, within the "ChangeLog".

Just try to trying to make it clear to a User/Patron why their "Note" was not added.

This problem/issue is very Minor as there will not be too many Users/Patron that will try to add an EXACT "Duplicate" of an existing "Notes" within the "Notes" Section; but, the possibility must always be considered; and, therefore, indicated to Users/Patrons as not added due to duplication.

Submitted for you attention and Information.

'Thank You' in advance.
