@kehh @juliaweist I've created a UI for the object ⇔ occurrence relationships, selected a type restriction, and made the screen content with two metadata element sets (source fields). The metadata element sets (Digital Source and Slide Source) already are attributed to the object ⇔ occurrence relationships. I'm not sure what the next step is? How would I see a source record linking to objects?

After you create the relationship between the object and occurrence with the designated relationship type you should see the paperclip icon: http://docs.collectiveaccess.org/wiki/File:Paperclip.png. Do you see that?

Maybe I am not on the right track.. I've made a UI for the relationship. I have an object that uses a source record. Am I supposed to see the paperclicp icon on the object record UI or the source (occurrence) UI?

You're supposed to see the paperclip on the relationship bundle. What does the object x occurrence relationship w/ the type "image is copied" look like from either direction (object UI or occurrence UI)?

How would I add the new relationship on object UI and occurrence UI?

You just need to add one or more links between any Object record and any Occurrence record using the relationship type "image is copied"

Ahh, I see. Is it possible to include a free text field in this related occurrence set? I want to include a page number field to the source bibliography.

You would add the free text field on the relationship record. We don't bundle any other fields with relationships (that's what the record is for).

I have two sets of metadata elements Digital Image Source and Slide Source, which use the same occurrence "Source" (an object record can have the same source title for digital and slide, or two different titles). I've made two different relationship UIs for digital source and slide source, but I can't enter two different sources in an object records. Is there a way to do this?

@artvrc , in my installation of CA, I am able to add multiple sources connect to an object. Have you looked in the user interfaces section and see if a limit was placed on the source relationship?
Has anyone had problems importing PNG images? I just uploaded a couple of PNG files and I had vertical lines running through the image. However, if take the same file and I save as a JPG then upload that image, the lines go away.

I tried a different PNG file and the image uploaded with an error which makes me wonder if the problem lays with Darktable and not CollectiveAccess.
