The PID does exist.
The problem was a bug in the FT programming.
The problem is now fixed.
..We understand you can't see a PID for a person. Did you check to see if there is another record for this person? Is the person living? If so, and you didn't create the record, you will not be able to see it for privacy reasons.
This article may help you look for a duplicate. We hope this helps.

That is incorrect. In fact, not only could I see the PID, but I copy-pasted the PID from that page into the Replace Person tool. The tool was broken. Now the tool is fixed.
I spoke too soon. Now I am getting this error again.
Now Replace Parent works half-way: it deletes the parent-child relationship but does not attach the child to the replacement parent.
Without reading your previous posts on how you have created an ID for a project, rather than an individual, I'm sure users will be baffled about what is going on here - full stop.
Are you talking about removing a child from "PROJECT Emhuff 19th Century" and attaching it to an actual "human" parent?
Also, are you happy to let another user try this out with a child of "PROJECT Emhuff 19th Century", or do you wish to stick with your original issue of not being able to bring-up the ID?
BTW - the video you reference (under Life Sketch) is not a FamilySearch one and I still believe your use of the ID in this way will be considered by many users to be a misuse of the program. Why can't you just keep these projects / databases somewhere else on your hard drive. We don't have to utilise Family Tree for all our research work, surely?
Another recent topic concerns project pages. Here I will stick to this topic, the bug.
@Paul W, you are welcome to try replacing the "father" of GW5M-WN2 Frank Emhoff. On the web interface go to G89K-7YJ and under Details: Parents and Siblings, edit the child of G89F-2L7, that is GW5M-WN2, to replace his parent G89F-2L7 with G89K-7YJ.
This operation moves Frank Emhoff from one project generation page to the next.
I do this kind of transfer often in families where fathers and sons have the same name; it is easy to mix up their children. Yesterday I worked on a family that was even more tangled because the father and son not only had the same name, they married the same woman. She was the 4th wife of the father and step-mother of the son.
