Sources as footnotes to each page?

Postby E Wilcock » 13 Feb 2019 18:23

I want to send a descendants report with full sources and my Research Notes event to another researcher.

It was posted recently that source notes could be footnotes at the foot of each page. I have made this choice for footnotes after each record at food of the page and I dont see them there at all. All the sources are at the end of the document.
It is the same with a custom descendants report that Mike helped me do when I first came to fh. Tho I was using it then for only 3 Generations so it did not require footnotes at the bottom of each page.

Is it possible that some other choice about not repeating sources, is preventing their showing on the same pages as the facts they verify?

You are probably thinking of this topic, where the question was raised by a former TMG user: Can Citations be Listed on the Page Where Cited in a Report (16560)
However, as Mike explained there, FH does not currently offer the option of listing sources at the foot of every page. The option you have selected will place them after each record. If your document consists of just one descendants report (i.e. descendants of one selected individual) this means the sources will, in fact, be at the very end of the document. But if it consists of two or more descendants reports (i.e. for two or more selected individuals) the sources for each will appear at the end of the appropriate section.
