Thanks Steve. No, apparently I can't write them all down
transfer them into deedmapper, all without stopping to clear my head because
while I wrote them right, I found more than a few mistakes in my input to
deedmapper, even though I had went over them time and time again. I tried
to correct some lines and now don't know if I didn't change them back after
making changes or if I entered them wrong to start with! Thankfully I don't
get paid to copy them correctly!!!
The simplest way to make changes to a deed (or whatever) where you
want to keep the old information to be able to go back is to make the
original line entry a comment by placing an Exclamation Mark at the
beginning of the line. Then just below it, add a new line with the
actual change. If you need to change back, just delete the new line
and the Exclamation Mark at the beginning of the original line.
If the one change doesn't do what you want, you can keep doing the
same thing, retaining the changes (now commented out) and this will
allow you to keep track of what changes you have tried. When you
have decided what changes are most correct, you can get rid of the
interim changes, making other comments as needed for documentation.
Hope this helps -
