Media File Description, when File is a Citation Media

In the Media Workspace, Details for a media item, there is a field for the Description of that Media file. In this specific example, the Media file in question is linked to a Citation. I have chosen to use the Reference Note, from the Source Workspace, Citation screen as the Media Description.

Going to the Media Workspace, Details and selecting the Media file that does not have a Description. The Description field on the Right is blank. There is a link to the Citation in the lower left, Linked Tab.



 Double clicking on that link will bring up the Citation screen, which has a Reference Note Tab.


That text is selected, and the CTRL+C (Copy) command it used to Copy that text. That window is closed and returned to the previous screen. Putting the Cursor into the Description field on the right, CTRL+V (Paste) that Reference Note text is now included in that media file description.
