Thank you Allan

I had of course followed the help link and read the message but it did not
mention about the red warning.

The answer then is to click on the red warning in case something else is
wrong with the transcription, but I thought freebmd would have informed the
transcriber if something else was wrong at the time of the upload.

Will the red highlight remain for ever? If so it will mean checking the same
file often in case something else is wrong with it.
