The text of a Source would normally be entered as an Exhibit. The Memo
(Comments) field of a Source Definition will print _if_ the Source Element
is included as part of one or more of the Templates for that Source
Category. You may globally alter the Source Templates to include this
Source Element in the System Configuration screen Tools=>Options from the
top menu). Alternatively, you may alter an individual Source Definition by
adding the Source Element to one of the Patterns on the Output Forms tab.

For more information on creating Sources, visit the TMG Tips website (URL
below). The TMG Proprietary page and the Articles & Tutorials page both
have items related to this topic.

Hope this helps -
