Gift Defaults with Notepad do not add Notepad information

When loading a gift default set that contains Notepad information, the Notepad information does not load to the new gift.

We have evaluated this issue as a bug and we have determined it will not be addressed in the program in its current state.  In this case, we believe the risks and challenges outweigh the potential benefit of resolving this issue. We strive to select the most impactful changes and issues to address with each release to accelerate the rate at which we deliver new features while sustaining the highest level of quality for our customers.
