I seem to be unable to save this source due to a lack of a "save" or "done" button. If I just close window it is not in my record. How do I save a source?

Thank You

I seem to be unable to save this source...Sources are automatically saved when closed.

The text you are pasting is white with a gray background. Reunion does not save background colors so the result is white text over a white background, this makes the source record appear to be empty.

Try using Edit > Paste as Plain text to paste the text copied from your browser or select the entire free from text field and change the text color to black.

I have the same issue with the new update. I type the new source in, and nothing happens after I close the box.
Edit: I'll take that back. The new source gets a number and appears in the lust of sources, but the text I typed in the free-form field does not appear either in the list or under the event it relates to. Why would that be?

Hi Muriel,

...the text I typed in the free-form field does not appear either in the list or under the event it relates to. Why would that be?

Is the "Exclude from Endnotes" option under the Free-Form Text field (in the Source window that opens when you double-click a source) checked?

If so, try unchecking that and see if the text appears.

Thanks,
