Template Formats question

Post by Kylie » 04 May 2021 10:56

Any chance you can tell me where & how to include "Reference" in the 'Footnote'? (Source Record/Citation Tab)

I also clicked "Assessment" but it doesn't want to appear in the 'Footnote' either. (also not showing in Short Footnote & Bibliography)

I was in Preferences, Source, - image attached. Realised I could change what is & isn't included in the Footnotes.

As for which Source Template, Generic - ALL.

So when I print any form of Narrative, Summary etc ALL the 'footnotes' that are on the "Source" page include the reference.

I've started a new topic for this.
You are getting mixed up between generic Sources and templated Sources.

Tools > Preferences > Sources > Generic Source Formats... only applies to Sources that do NOT have a Source Template linked to them, i.e. they use the standard FH/GEDCOM generic Source record format.

Your Source record [93] is using the Civil Registration Certificate template.
So to change its Footnote Format you must Clone that template and edit via Tools > Source Template Definitions...

There are restrictions on where Citation fields such as Assessment can appear in some Formats.
