I'm having a problem with the "Source List" report. While the sources are being formatted properly (i.e., italicized), the citation Research Notes and Detail Comments are not. Instead of actually formatting the text, it shows the formatting codes. Following is an example of how it appears on the report:

 

Footnote: Jane Doe Smith, Life of John Doe (New York, NY: Brown Publishing, 1925), [Page].
Text: Source Text
Comments: Source Comments
Citations:
1. Doe, John (Personal). pp. 5-17. Detail text: <u>Evidence John Doe was born 1791 in Duchess County, New York. He married Mary Jones about 1815 and they had 9 children.</u> Detail comments: <i>Well sourced for further research.</i>

Something like this also happens with Multimedia descriptions. Onscreen, we can use bold * formatting in the description, but when the Scrapbook is printed, the codes show.

 

Onscreen:

Michigan, Death Records, 1867-1950

 

As printed in Scrapbook:

<i>Michigan, Death Records, 1867-1950</i>

Thanks, zhangrau. I guess I missed that.

 

Thanks, Renee, for the update.
