I am on vacation back in my school city of graduation. I am going to spend some time at the city library trying to find more information about deceased classmates.

I was just down there for a short visit, and found half dozen of the 25 I need. My question, should I COPY or SCAN these obituaries? Seems like Brad had certain warnings about fonts and pasting stuff into Class Creator. I want to make sure I get these, but in the optimal format that will give me the most flexibility when I return home to work on In Memory section.

The optimal format is to OCR scan them as straight ASCII text. I.E. no fonts or anything else, just regular old plain text. Then you can copy and paste the text into your obits, and format and add any images as desired.
