Add Research Note Question

Post by BakerJL75 » 22 Feb 2021 16:04

I read, but maybe misunderstood that if I don't want my autotext overwritten by an upgrade, I should put it in a custom folder in Manage Autotext.
Here is what mine looks like:

But when I want to add one of those notes with Add, Research Note, my custom notes they are not there to use.

Clearly I'm not understanding something.

Your custom research note autotext should live somewhere under the Research folder, not alongside it. Additionally, the Help recommends Custom as the safest name for the folder.
