      Description

      I tried to create two entities that have the same name. This is a fairly common situation in an archive of moderate size. (e.g. consider how many John Smiths exist and write books). Instead, i get the following message:
      -----
       There are errors preventing information in specific fields from being saved as noted below.
          Value John///Smith/// is already used and duplicates are not allowed
