What is the best way to record source citations for an exhibit?

I haven't discovered a way of linking an exhibit to an entry in the Master Source List. For example, if I acquire data and exhibits, say a photo, I can attach a source citation to the data, but not the photo. Is there a way of linking the photo to a source?

John,

I don't know of a way to do that for TMG reports. For websites created with Second you can enter the citation using the embedded citation codes - [CIT:]source no.;CD[:CIT] - in the exhibit caption.

See my Tutorials and Articles on using TMG at tmg.reigelridge.com

The Second Edition of my book, A Primer for The Master Genealogist, is still available
. For more information see my website.

Thanks for that, Terry. As I don't use Second it looks as though I'll have to continue entering an acknowledgement in the description. Seems an odd oversight. I've looked for a WishList to add this to, but couldn't find one. Is there one on the Forum or WG Website?
