Is there a way to detach an incorrect source from an individual in Family Tree Maker 2017?

A source was entered for an emigration fact and later a more accurate and complete source was located. I have entered the second source, but cannot remove the first one from the individual fact.

In the panel on the right side of the screen (on the "Person" page) there is a small menu line with an unlink icon. Highlight the source and click the icon.

That being said, I would recommend keeping every source, as long as it is a legitimate one. I even keep sources where the facts are wrong, though I make sure to note the correct ones. I find this very helpful in the long term.
