keeping Legacy in sync with Ancestry

Classification: Query
I have decided I much prefer Legacy (for one thing it keeps me honest with sources) but sometimes I like to accept a hint on Ancestry and also keep that synced with FTM for backup. So here's what I do. Go to the hint on a person where it shows the hint but don't select the image.. Yet. First I go to the left column and choose "printer friendly" which then can be selected and pasted into the source text which very nicely has a "remove HTML" option! And the source at the bottom can be copied and pasted into the source detail and any comments can be added. Then I go to the image and download it to my computer and thence to Legacy. Then and only then do I accept the hint on Ancestry. And then sync Ancestry online tree to FTM. I don't put everything I do in Legacy into Ancestry, but this gets everything I do in Ancestry into Legacy.
