“It's one of the reasons I don't anticipate using this feature much myself.”

“Your project, your call. I don't feel like a citation is complete without essential source information, so I include URLs with any information from the web.”

I guess I don’t understand. I was talking about exactly the same thing in both cases, but the first time I talked about it you said you didn’t “anticipate using this feature” and the second time I talked about you said “so I include “it””

Marco I feel we are talking past one another here [possibly I am talking about one thing and you are talking about something else]. I don’t feel it is necessary to make any further comments [except for the PS and PPS below] so I will not. Thanks for you input though


PS further on your 5 dec 2102 comment
“ then these URLs must be accompanied by snapshots of the source cited. I have made a case for those "snapshots”

These snapshots are exactly what I call my “exhibits/images” and the are the exact “things” I put in my FTM Media file and they are the exact same things I reference in my Source Citation in the Source Repository Field of the Source Template “work sheet” [and have been doing for years] and they are the exact list of snapshots [“exhibits/images”] I get when I run a Media Usage Report.

It appears from further looking at this I have forever been including the “URL” in the Source Repository Field and the recent change in FTM 2012 has been to provide a Web Address Field so that I can move the URL from the Source Repository Field to the Web Address Field

PPS In the main I am using MS Word Documents with embedded JPEG’s for my snapshots/exhibits/images and not PDF’s. I do this because I have always done it this way and also because sometimes I revise my snapshots and it is easier to do in MS Word
