Source Details (or Abstract) Not Downloading to RMFact/Event Details

The Ancestry API isn't transferring the abstract attached to the source. Manual copy & paste is the only way to get it.

So, still the same. This would be a nice feature. Maybe it should be added to the wish list.
I have had one hint that helps some. When viewing the "abstract" on line in Ancestry, first click on the "print" button, and then capture the desired text of the abstract from the html screen that appears. Now paste into the details/research notes tab in the RM source record. The result is a much cleaner, better organized, and seems to require little or no editing/formatting.
Thanks for the info

We'll support it if Ancestry adds it to their API. So its their wish list it needs to be on.
