Edit function

Recommended Posts

For as long as I can remember, the Edit function page has most items grayed out, including Insert Object. I was always able to ignore it as just an annoyance and could find a workaround. However, I'm now trying to insert a PDF as an exhibit and can't figure out how to do it. Can someone please help?

Thank you.


UPDATE: I figured out how to right click and get an OLE box, but what do I put into it. It won't accept a paste or a path to the file. Help???

I have no idea what you are trying to do or the context.

To add a .PDF file as an exhibit...

Make sure that the PDF file is in the folder selected by the Exhibits path in Preferences.

Open the Exhibit Log from any of the appropriate contexts (person, event, source, reporitory).

Right-click into the exhibit log and select 'Add new exhibit (other)'. Select the .PDF file from the 'Insert new exhibit' dialog and click [Open].

That's it.

Keep in mind that PDF exhibits will not output in reports.

Dear Jim,

Thank you so much for your instructions. I apologize for my delayed reply. Something came up and kept me from my computer, but I'm always grateful for your help.
