How does WizAdd handle duplicates?
WizAdd uses WizFolio’s active duplicate check engine. For example if the Abstract field is empty and the new item has data in the Abstract field, then the data from the new item will be inserted into the existing item. If there are conflicting values in any of the fields, WizAdd will not replace the original bibliography.

Exception: For Webpages, if there are two similar webpage items having different bibliographic data, we will save them as two separate items. This will allow you to keep multiple web snippets from a single webpage.
