I use templates that I have saved in Legacy. Using "Cite a Master Source" I 
save it, then using "Edit Source" I add the particulars for that document. 
The program will ask if you want to save it as a new source which I do. I 
still have the original template and can add or delete what is necessary for 
the new source.

I don't think so.

What works for me is a series of templates that I have put together in Word.

Once I have established a footnote for something, censuses say, that I am 
satisfied with, I put it in a my Template take, listing a first reference, a 
second reference and a source list entry.  Then I just call the template up 
and usually copy the reference I need from the template to the thing I am 
working on. It has to be edited of course but that does not take long.  It 
helps that I have a wide screen monitor..

Subject: [APG Public List] Gen Program citations

Finally some time to clean up my own family files (or at least clean up the 
material added over the last few years, gathered up but not properly 
thought to save time on citations, I'd automate things and save time by 
employing by Source Writer in Legacy (since I have the program sitting here). 
In the end I've come dow to simply using the "override" feature where you 
type in your own citation, so no savings on the table with that. Seemed more 
time being wasted filling in the information in the provided template, and 
then trying to rejig it to reflect what I wanted. Maybe I just didn't take the 
time to learn how to use this automatated 'tool', but are any of these 
features (on any program) worth the trouble?
