In Topic: Using the same source for multiple facts for the same person

09 January 2020 - 08:52 AM

Hi, Beth,


It really isn't weird at all. When you describe creating a Source Citation for multiple people at the same time, you are still referencing only ONE Event to which the multiple people are attached (1 or 2 principles plus witnesses). In order  to cite multiple events you need to create a new citation to the source, or make a copy and paste it to the additional event. The memorize and paste is a convenience tool to use when citing multiple events with the same source.

Greedy people are never satisfied that they have enough. They’re like sharks that spend their entire life hunting and consuming. All the oceans in the world can’t satisfy these eating machines.”

And I thought I was expressing mere curiosity. Good to know I'm greedy and devour everything in sight!

Five installations on the Blog between September 2 and September 23, 21 days/5 = average time between postings of 4.2 days. However, it has been eleven days since the last posting... Hmm, nothing new to show?

In Topic: Sources Using Source Template

20 September 2019 - 09:52 PM

Well, this is an example of new 'functionality' that I hope to see in RM8. So far, four blog posts have presented screen shots of the new interface, which is just a different way of presenting what is already in RM7. So far, no mention of new capabilities as far as I can tell.

In Topic: Source Template Access to Person Details

18 September 2019 - 09:20 AM

I have to agree with Jerry. What you seem to be looking for is a way to "link" the Source to a Person, directly. That is not the purpose of a Source. A Source is linked to Citations, which in turn are linked to "Information" about a Person or the Events in their lives. Additionally, as Jerry has pointed out, the Name field, or whatever it is called, is intended to record the persons name AS IT APPEARS in the Source. I wouldn't want it any other way, either.
