418 - How to add a note from your tree to your project

You can find the notes for a person under the Ancestry Records for that person in the project editor and add them to your project. First click Ancestry Records to the left of your project and locate the individual the note is attached to. Then drag the note to the page as shown below.

If you zoom in the result will look something like the image below. You can edit the font, text, or text box if you would like to. 

If you have privatized your Ancestry online tree this process will still work for you, but if you use Family Tree Maker and you have privatized the notes in Family Tree Maker this process will not work because the note will not appear in your online tree. Another option is to copy and paste the information into a new text box. Once you have added a new text box you can paste in the information from your note.
