Hello all

I am able to save all my census images to .pdf files, on other programmes I can copy these files to Clipboard and then paste them from the Clipboard. I don't seem able to do this in Rootsmagic.
I save all my census images as .pdf files and would like to simply copy them to the notes or sources sections for different families.
Any suggestions gratefully received

You can link to the .pdf files using multimedia. Since they are not text files, you cannot, to the best of my knowledge, copy them directly into the notes or sources. One way would be to add census facts and add multimedia files to those facts.

You can also add it to the multimedia section of sources instead. Since roots mainly links to the pic instead of adding it . It wouldnt matter now ya did it. In family tree 11 it would very quickly increase the size of your data file, specially since the saves of most of my censuses are about 1 meg each.
