Here is the way I do this---

When the errors come up, I click on the line in the error window with  
one of the errors. Then, I see what record the problem is in, easily  
identified by its cite key. Then I open the record in the get info  
window for it, and then correct it, and save again.

I am not sure how to reload the errors window, though.

I like this method because it is pretty mechanical, and also, I don't  
have to worry about the various new files that are created when  
editing the window showing the file.
