Misty, Bill, et al.
"While I'd like to be able to say that my surety levels never change once
I've set them, the addition of new sources to an event always makes me
reevaluate the quality of my previous sources, and my opinions ARE subject
to change (on occasion). <g>"
And Genbox MAKES us 'reevaluate' the Surety by wiping it out when we add a
source citation to an assertion. At first, I thought this was a bug, then I
realized it was a feature working in my favor. <g>
Interestingly, this whole process works very differently when creating
citations in the Notes fields. When opening an existing citation in a Note
field and adding an additional source, the Surety level is NOT dropped, and
is reflected in BOTH of the citation references generated in the Notes
field. It almost appears that the design of embedded citations does not
include the possibility of citing more than one source, collectively, for
one item, as each citation is listed separately, even though they are
created within a single Assertion?
