Worthington, Russ, [ ADDRESS FOR PERSONAL USE ], Profile Review; Reviewed 04 September 2019.
A year later, I find that I need to review it again. Usually after a Merge, or I have Conflicting Information. So, I Select the Copy Citation ICON (to the right of New), then use the Paste Duplicate Source Citation option, in the New Menu, then EDIT that new / copy of the Citation and change 04 September 2019 to 16 September 2020, creating a New Citation.
Worthington, Russ, [ ADDRESS FOR PERSONAL USE ], Profile Review; Reviewed 16 September 2020.
Taking this one step further, I have three more Profiles, then can Copy the Citation (ICON to the right of New), with the 16 September 2020 date, so it is in the Family Tree Maker clipboard, then go to the 2nd profile, where I am doing the same thing, adding a "Profile Reviewed" Fact, and Click New, and PASTE Existing Link to the Source Citation. Repeat the Adding of the Fact and the PASTE Existing Link to the Source Citation to the next two Facts for the three profile.
New - want to Create a New Source (Source Group) and Citation
Use and Existing Citation - have a Citation that needs to be added to another Fact, where you Select that Citation
Paste Duplicate Citation - want a Copy of a Citation to be edited, creating a NEW Citation in that same Source Group
Paste Existing Link to the Citation - adding a Link to an existing Citation
