Not sure I really qualify as an 'expert'. You do know the defination of an 'expert' don't you!!
Anyway, here is my article once again.
Macro to Insert Source in Proof Window UFT Version 3.0 by Paul Lawrence
In UFT version 3.0, the Find function for sources has been improved.First, instead of listing the first 250 sources by source number in the list of existing sources, the first 250 sources alphabetically are listed.Additionally, once you add a source that is not in the first 250 listed to the default list, that source will be included with the first 250 sources.This means that once it has been added to the default button, you do not have to do the Find Again in order to used the Default button as you did with versions 2.8 and 2.9. This change necessitates a change in the macro I described in the September 1998 issue of the RUG Newsletter for adding sources to the proof window.
I now have over 400 sources in my database.Usually when I am enteringdata it is from a source that I recently have found and I am usually enteringseveral individuals with all the appropriate events. Trying to bea good genealogist, I will cite the source for the information in each event which means I am citing this same source over and over.BeforeI start entering the individuals, I create this source.The first time I use the source, I add the source to the Default button, using the Find Again button if the source is not in the first 250 sources alphabetically.I can now use the Default button to add the source to the proof window on future proofs.Actually, I create a macro that adds the source to the proof window and also moves the source to the footnote text for me.
Following are instructions for creating the macro that I use.
1. Open the Proof window. 2. Start the macro recorded by pressing alt+F10 3. Assign a key stroke to the macro by pressing the desiredkey combination (I use ctrl+D as my fingers seem to easily fall to thosekeys) 4. Click OK to start recording the macro (remember that marcos can onlyrecord key strokes, not mouse operations) 5. Press alt+x to open the Existing sources window 6. Press alt+d to use the Default source or sources 7. Press alt+F to open the Footnote Text window 8. Press tab twice to select the All Evidence button and pressenter (this will put all of your sources into the Footnote Text window) 9. Press tab four times to activate the OK button and press enter to close the Footnote Text window 10. Press alt+F10 and click OK to stop the macro record
Now the next time you need to attached that source to a Proof window, open the Proof window and press ctrl+d and the source will be selectedand also inserted in the Footnote Text window.Click OK to close the Proof window and continue with your data entry.
If the source you are using requires that you inserta volume and/or page number, or some other information in the Edit Textwindow, insert the following between steps 6 and 7.
• Press alt+t to open the edit text window • Type any common language like ‘page' • Press alt+F10 and click on Pause to pause the recorder (atthis point type in the common information like the page number for the current proof) • Press alt+F10 to restart the record and complete steps 7 through 10.
When you execute the macro it will paused in the Edit Textwindow and you can type in whatever needs to be typed such as the page number (you will probably have to backspace before typing the information to put it on the correct line,) and press alt+F10to continue running the macro.
