FYI: for others new to the PAF 5.2 program

Just discovered something about the PAF 5.2 genealogy program and thought I would share it. I found some very interesting/unknown facts (with documentation) about one of my family lines. Because it was very long I thought I would try to do a copy/paste on it. Copy the info on this one web site and Paste it to the notes section of this person on the PAF program.

When I pasted it into the notes section, it pasted just as it was on the web site, very large print, fancy fonte & colored. But it was better than having to retype this very long source, soooooo I hit save and went on. To my surprise, when I went in to add another source for this person, the PAF program had changed the large section I pasted on back to match the text that the rest of the 'notes' section is written like!!! Plus what is 'pasted' on, I can edit/delete what does not apply before I hit the save button. What a bonus. Now I know I can copy from the web & paste onto the PAF program and the program will automatically change it over to match the rest of the program text.
