Existing sources Again

I am still in trouble over existing sources. I lump most of my census sources. That is, I have a general existing source for each UK census. I make a new census Fact entry. I click the plus and select existing generic souce and the pane opens, but it contains the data for the previous specific citat...

Re: Selecting an existing source

Thank you both. I will see how this goes. I have to wait till it happens again. I did try dragging the column line but it was dead. Not a working link. But since reading your advice and leaving that pane open I havent had a problem. Moreover we have found a source document and page ref we have been ...

Re: Selecting an existing source

Thank you. I have done that. However I have a lot of blank columns. What is the difference between Generic Type and Template? My type list looks much like a template list to me? I have not opted to use or add Templated sources. But may be I should. As presumably I always used them prior to arriving ...

Selecting an existing source

I am still finding it had to add sources. Is there any way to get the author field to show when one is searching to enter an existing source? I have for years used the Book format for most of my sources. It provides fields for a title and an author. Thus if I cite a family tree from a DNA match or f...

Source citation display.

I am still floundering with sources in fh7. After entering the source, fh7 helpfully shows me how that source will appear in the footnote etc. But the detail of the citation does not appear. I get the GRO index of births or the overall Census source for a particular year. But I dont see the detailed...

But why have they devised a complex source and citations system where one cant cite an author?

Re: Sources and citation in fh7

Thank you both. That looks to have fixed it. I did indeed try both the suggested solutions. Being simple, it is useful to go back to the default. I also then tried a dummy census entry creating a new (dummy) citation and it is all clear. Since I have been floundering with fh7 sources since last Dece...

Re: Sources and citation in fh7

I am getting the pane as shown above (last image)
And the citation-specific pane is there and the two little dotted lines. However, I cant separate those lines and the yellow space offered for citation is not editable. I could try to get you a snipped image if that would help.
