I want to provide some feedback about adding and managing sources as it seems a little inconsistent.
If I go to Content Lists, Sources, and add a source I am presented with a large number of fields I can enter about the source as well as attach the source media.
Now, if I go to add an event or fact for a person on the Details panel I can add media and on the Source panel I can type in the name of the source I added and reference it.
When I do this it is unclear to me what the relationship is supposed to be between the media item for the event / fact on the previous panel and the media item associated with the source.
Now, instead of selecting the source previously entered say I want to create a new source as it would be nice to do everything in one shot and that seemed to be the design goal. I can do so by entering the title and citation information, but it does not make sense to me that all the other fields associated with creating a source are not available here and that the attachment of the source media is not here either but on the previous panel.
Or so I thought. I’m further confused because then after I save everything if I go to edit the real source record that was created to add some of the additional information I could not when creating it the media is not associated with it as I expected.
Sort of related to this, there is a bug as when editing the real source record I noticed if I select the type at the bottom, say original, and save it and then pull it up in edit mode again the selection is gone.
I think another possible bug is in the publication section in the source display. If in person view when I select the evidence item and then select (source) it opens the source panel and for the one source where I entered the certificate information in the Page / volume / film # field it displays as follows:
Page / volume / film #: Certificate #1459
Not sure if that lead in portion should be there or not, seems to look out of place to me.
