Duplicate entries

I updated my Ancestry family tree and exported the new file to my computer. I opened Legends software and imported the new file thinking it would just update everything, but now when I make a chart there are duplicate people.
How do I delete the duplicate people on the charts? they do not show up as duplicate in the list of people.

If they don't show up as duplicates in the list of people then they aren't really duplicates.

What you are seeing are descendants of a common ancestor (usually caused by cousin marriages) and there is no way to 'delete' them as they correctly hold more than one position in the chart simultaneously.

they are showing up as somebody's children on the bowtie/ancestor/descendant pages twice.
Same parents, children show up double
per page
