Copy and paste into a note ?
« on: August 16, 2017, 07:43:13 »
I'm trying to create a note linked to a "death event" : it seems I can't copy the death notification (from the local newspaper's web site) and simply paste it into the note. Or have I missed something ?

Thanks.

Hi,
Here it works fine. Don't know why it doesn't work for you. Francois

Thanks. But neither right-click nor Ctrl - V respond, so how do I paste ?

Can you edit the note, type some text? If not, then it may be a dummy note, first you must click on "Choose this note" (actually in French). This is at least what I have to do when creating a new note.

Hi ,
If you  use Linux * Ctrl+V doesn't work in Ancestris .
you'ĺl have to click in paste icon .

Best regards

* Perhaps it's depend of your desktop environment but for mine (openbox)  Ctrl+V doesn't work  at all .

Just my opinion :
A web link isn't good for genealogy (or for anything else) . Cause the server can be down or ............  death  :'(
Download is a good way .
Best regards .
