Is there a quick and easy way of importing the contents of a Windows file that holds all my scanned data into the Media Gallery please. I would like to link various imported data to individual in RM7 after importation.

Thanks

Actually, my answer in the referenced thread is not correct. You can drag and drop a bunch of media files from a folder in Windows File Explorer into RM's Media Gallery all at the same time. It sort of "just works". However, the tagging of said media files into individual objects in RM such as people, families, facts, sources, citations, and places is still very manual and one at a time.
