Formatting issues with the "Source List" report

11 January 2018 - 05:50 PM

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
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>

Privacy Options for Media Files

19 November 2017 - 11:01 AM

I have not yet linked my RM family tree to Ancestry.com. One of the reasons I hesitate is that, while most of the media I have in my file can be shared (and in fact, much of it came from Ancestry.com), I have many media items that needs to remain private. From past experience I know that any media put on Ancestry.com is automatically shared unless otherwise marked as private. I also understand, if a media item inadvertently gets uploaded to Ancestry.com and it isn't marked as private at the time, it can take a couple of days for the privacy settings to kick in after the setting is changed and, given the number of users they have, it may be too late... others may have it and be sharing it.


My question is, when I share my file on Ancestry.com, will the media automatically be uploaded as well? If so, is there any way to mark individual media files on the RM side as private? (I could not find it if there is.)
