I've got a NTF which is a master template.

I also got a NSF which inherit the changes from the NTF

NTF was created from the NSF.  They don't have the same filename.

I don't know exactly why, (I think it's a refresh using F9 on the Notes Client Workspace) but some of the views from the NTF went in the NSF.  So the NSF now have twice the same view.  (Those views where the ones without a check in the No Refresh column)

When I try to cut/paste or drag a doubled view from the NSF to the now NTF, it doesn't work.  The doubled views stay in the NSF (having more views than it would normally need) and the NTF still have missing views.

Why would you want to move the duplicate view to the NTF?  Just delete it from the NSF!

By the way, Notes has two confusing, overlapping, separate concepts of "template."

NTF files:
    Can be used to create new databases from, almost as if you had copied the database with design but no data.
    Can also be used to replace the design of an existing database.

Master templates:
    Can be any file, even NSF
    Allow design elements to be refreshed in other databases that inherit form the master
    Inherittance can be either of the whole master, or even individual design elements

A single file can be both a master template and NTF file.  NTF files came first, and they are still useful in that they are the only things that show up in a database create or replace design.  Master templates are more flexible in that you can have the server design task propagate them automatically, and you can have one database inherit from multiple sources.  You can even have one master inherit from another.

I think it is a problem with version 5 and version 6

If the nsf is opened in 6 and changed, some of the views do not show up in the ntf and visa versa.

I had that problem and the only way to solve it is to open both in V6 and then start looking at what is double and what is not.

I ended up with deleting all the double views and copied the missing views again from an old backup.

But then, make sure you do not modify in V5 anymore.

Not so much v5/v6... there is a bug in the deisgn handler taht sometimes results in indexes of the design elements that get stuck and won't update.  Usually fixup or compact and a restart of all clients solves this.
