Hello, I am trying to import a Gedcom file produced by Family Origins 3.0. This file has many free-form source notes, some of which are quite large. They appear on the Gedcom as a SOUR line with first line of text, followed by CONT lines containing subsequent text.

When I import to PAF 4 or 5, the program tries to put the Source note all into the Title, and truncates most of the note. Is there a way to import the entire note, and put it into the Footnote box? That is what FTM does with the file.
