If you list siblings, but do not have the same parents , how can you correct that?

On every profile there is a pull-down menu for selecting a parent pair from the closest profiles in the relationship tab page of the edit window. Select the correct pair and click save.

Example: You and your half sibling have the same mother, but not the same father. If your father is not in the tree already connected to your mother as a spouse/ex-spouse you have to add a profile for him first, - even if your father is an unknown person. You add an extra spouse to your mother by clicking on the yellow left or right arrow on her in tree view (assuming default view layout).
When that profile is added you can make the operation changing parents and when done you can go back to the added profile and simply delete it if this is an unknown person, or simply name him unknown and set the correct relationship to your mother like for example ex-spouse.
