I just inadvertently added a daughter to the wrong family. I'm not seeing an easy way to remove her.

What I think would be useful would be an icon that could be used to drag an individual from one family to another on the families tab or in the family navigator.

Alternatively (and a bit easier to do, probably) would be something to click on and pop up a form to select or create a different set of parents.

navigate to the family page > edit > Change family members

individual page > Families tab > Link this individual to an existing family as a child

Drag and drop would only be useful if you had both source and target family displayed on the same page (how to achieve this in general?); Overall I think the existing edit options are sufficient because this feature is required occasionally only.

In my case. it was done by typing the father's name but clicking on the wrong marriage. So both families would always be visible on the child's page and any of the three parents. But drag and drop would be more difficult than the other option. As for the "existing edit options," the only way I could find was editing raw GEDCOM, which took several sxtyeps to get right. After deleting the FAMC entry from the child, the GUI showed her as both her mother and her daughter, with the wrong father as married to all three!
