[Feature Request] Separate Export and Biblio Output Formats

When I export refs, I always use UTF-8 BibTeX. When I just want to visualise formatted refs (formatted ref panel in the UI), or generate a manual Bibliography, I almost always want to use Styled text. But whenever I export it also changes the biblio settings and visa versa, and constantly am switchi...

Re: Push/background/auto-sync

It does perform a sync when it first opens for me too, so I think your observation is correct (but even on poor internet, it is done in the blink of an eye for me at least, and PDFs are synced even with bookends closed via iCloud drive). I'm not sure if running a background sync even when bookends i...

Re: Push/background/auto-sync

I use iCloud sync which magically keeps every system I use (iMac, Macbook, iPad and iPhone), always up-to-date without any fussing. So I assume you are referring to another sync method?

Re: Bookends doesn't run in Catalina betas -- update

Just to confirm under Catalina beta 5 that Bookends has problems with attachments stored in iCloud (cannot open); and this is solved by ensuring System Prefs ▶︎ Security & Privacy ▶︎ Privacy ▶︎ Full Disk Access has Bookends included... Probably when the final is out, Bookends will need to add an iCl...

Re: searching ANYTHING in iOS

I just want to support this request (and extend it from talking about keywords to anything, as this problem applies to abstract, title etc). I love Bookends for iOS for everything else, but the search function frustrates me almost every day I use it. Trying to use iOS Bookends to quickly find a pape...

Re: Why no Trash folder in Bookends?

This was just a bump on this feature query. The iOS version of Bookends does has a Trash folder, so I suspect the issue is an architectural one on macOS (storing references ONLY in a predefined smart folder, not visible in All etc.)?

But you are selecting different things in Scrivener in your screenshots, select the containing folder then press ⌘1 to get into Scrivenings mode to see parent and children in one go:

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

Updated the gist, although I am likely to keep the bookends-tool source always up-to-date and it is the same script:

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

Hi, I've made a small fix to toOPML script so it should now work: https://github.com/iandol/bookends-tools/releases/tag/V1.3.2 Regarding copying the backlink, the problem I have is there are no modifier keys left to use! One possible solution is to use a workflow variable so that the behaviour of an...

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

Hi, my refs have notes and export, can someone create a bookends database with references that fail and when I have time I can have a look.

Re: Guidance on switching to Bookends

For several export customisations, the Biblio▸Formats manager... GUI will allow you to customise the output format without needing any applescript or scripting, but there is only so much you can do with it... The next step in complexity/automation is using Applescript/Javascript, for example to auto...

Re: Guidance on switching to Bookends

You should be able to transform specific fields for each record with Applescript. However Applescript can be really unfriendly for a lot of text work, and it is worth remembering you can also use Javascript (JXA) directly like Applescript, or any other language if you parse the resultant BIB file. I...

[feature request] OpenURL support

Bookends for macOS allows us to configure a set of custom searches (originally designed to support openurl but actually can generalise to any URL search pattern). I use this extensively to search for related references etc. Stuck with an iOS device I miss being able to flexibly search for ref info. ...

Re: Text formatted as white

I've seen this recently as well in my user1 field, but restarting Bookends seemed to fix it so I didn't pursue reporting it as a possible bug...
