I dragged an individual from one database and dropped him into another database. I thought his family notes would go with him, but they did not. Instead I had to copy and paste which is tedious. Thanks.

The family facts, notes etc won't go with a GEDCOM or Drag & Drop unless you include both spouses of the family.

I see. But it would be ok if I dragged and dropped "Person Notes" rather than "Family Notes" if Idragged a guy without his wife? So clicking "Individual only" would be a waste of time if he had family notes? I don't think there is a box for "Individual and Spouse" only. This is in the event I do not want to drag his kids or ancestors.

you can do it by tricking it.
highlight the individual,
Descendants with spouses,
1 generation.
