I just finished my first batch but it won't let me submit it because it says there are 300 entries and in reality there are only 160. Do I really have to go through the other 140 entries and mark all the fields blank? I can't imagine that it so, but I don't know what else to do since I'm a noob.

Hi Danielle. Welcome to Indexing!
You are correct, you don't have to mark all the fields blank.
The project is preset to 300 entries. Once you have indexed all the names on the image, you need to delete the unused entries. Click on the Trash Can icon, Select "all blank entries", click Delete. You will now be able to submit the batch.

When you are new to indexing, there are some tutorials which can be very helpful.

Here's an interview with Jason Pierson and discussion about indexing, including what's coming in the future.2
Thank you so much. I indexed for ancestry for a number of years and while most of it is the same, there's a few differences that I need to get a grip on.
