"Open source" for URLs

Re: FH7 create new source record for an event

Jim and Mike, thank you for your replies. Jim, your workflow works in the "Individual" property box, it probably is the easiest way to add a new source, I'll try that in the future.

FH7 create new source record for an event

I recently started working with FH7 and am missing a functionality which I had used quite frequently in the past. Unfortunately, I cannot turn the time back to see how this worked in FH6, but I'll try it from my memories. When I record an event in an individual's life, I want to record the source fo...
