Thanks  - it was in my own Downloads folder in a special partition but
the same option was offered and it was duly installed, as now shown in
Help>About.

Now I have added 2 new children (twins) to one of my grandsons - I added
an event - birth - to each. After editing both to get them the same, and
sharing, I had 3 events with identical details (including ID) in one,
two in the other. How did that happen? I have removed the superfluous
copies.

I think you stumbled on a bug. If you can repeat it, let us know how. There was a bug fixed with clipboard drag and drop that could cause such a think, but you are using the latest version, so that cannot be it.

Should you experiment, take a backup by export to .gramps first.
