Clean up duplicate data

I have noticed, only by chance review of issues, that several issues have duplicate data, such as multiple copies of "1st appearance of.." and the like.   This can make the database bigger than it needs to be.  It would be nice if there was a way to run a database check that could remove extraneous duplicate items in notes.

The File > File Tools > Rebuild Items > Lists does do a scrub for a lot of different types of things like this (e.g. "1st appearance Character"; "1: Character", "1st appearance OF Character") but there's undoubtedly combinations it doesn't catch. Do a rebuild on your notes, and when you see specific cases which could be automated away safely, please call them to our attention.
