The notes for the Narrated Web report I was talking about are the ones
that can be used for the header and footer, introduction contact pages
etc. These notes get attached in the Narrated Web's dialog screen.
Pictures can also be attached to the web report itself. I will often
attach genealogy based comics.
I have a Person Record named "Anchor, Do Not Delete' that 'holds'
these notes and media so they do not get deleted. I do not use the
"Remove Unused Objects" tool. It does not include Citations. I have a
filter for each area that looks for Reference Count = 0. At least once
a week I run these filters on Events, Citations, and Notes... in that
order, to clear things I have recently deleted from records as I clean
and document, Doing it often helps me remember why these items are
To Do notes do not get flag for deletion by the "Remove Unused
Objects" tool. They will show up in filters above. That is why I also
attach To Do notes to my Anchor person.

Mine are called "SURNAME XXX", "SURNAME YYY", "SURNAME ZZZ"
for general notes relating to various family surnames.
Their given names are subjects like "Durham Ancestors",
"Migration", "Mining" and so on.
I stick media, maps, links, etc. onto the appropriate
