Re: Open OpenURL Search in External Browser?

Would it be possible to add an "Open in External Browser" option for Bookends browser? Generally I agree that the internal browser is a good default, but sometimes I need to access extensions and tools that my external browser has...

Open OpenURL Search in External Browser?

Hi Jon, I checked the user manual but didn't find a solution; is there a way to open an OpenURL search in an external browser? I tried cmd or alt clicking the menu entries etc. and didn't notice an option in the preferences... My current solution is to open it in the internal browser then copy the U...

Re: [Feature Request] Auto-sync to a BibTeX File

Jabref has some really nice management features, I agree! I actually utilise Jabref to cleanup my Bookends library, the "Check Integrity" tool returns a brilliant "health report" on the state of the database items like duplicate DOIs, malformed journal names, rogue HTML entities and lots of other ch...

Re: Show Attachment in Finder

For some reason, the trigger "Show Attachment in Finder" is not working for me (context menu triggers work fine in other apps), which was why I had to add the mouse manipulation actions. Does it work directly for you?

Re: Show Attachment in Finder

Using BetterTouchTool, you can trigger a context menu and then automate the mouse movement (BTT can't seem to trigger Bookend's context menu items directly, not sure why):

Re: Praise: PDF "open in" feature

Hi Lyriel, yes, this solves the problem, a long-press gives a menu, thanks for the tip!. This is much more logical to be honest, having lots of icons for each action was not sensible... Indeed, it would be great if we could have a long-press menu for the Attachment icon in Bookends itself that would...

Re: Automatic PDF Annotation notes like Bookends for iOS?

I was asking why we can only import a Notecard from the Note Stream, and not from the pre-existing PDF annotation directly[*]? PDF Highlight/Annotation[1] > Automatic Note Stream Item[2] > Note Field text (Notecard)[3] Currently we can create [3] using [2], but not [1]... It would improve the workfl...

Re: Automatic PDF Annotation notes like Bookends for iOS?

The problem is that most of my highlight annotations are made using PDF Expert or Highlights on iOS or macOS. I would like to be able to select the highlights I make and turn them into permanent Note cards. At the moment you are suggesting that I select the text in the highlight to make a new card, ...

Re: Automatic PDF Annotation notes like Bookends for iOS?

1. Yes, brilliant thank you!!!!!! 2. Ah, these options only work on a text selection whereas I selected the annotation itself (the box around the highlighted text denoting a selected annotation). Does it make sense to expand the "Make PDF Note from Selection" to apply to selection of text or selecti...

Automatic PDF Annotation notes like Bookends for iOS?

In iOS Bookends, I can annotate a PDF in Bookends or an app like PDF Expert and when I go back to Bookends-iOS, the annotations are automatically viewable in Bookends itself as PDF notes (but these are not synced as iCloud data I think?). In macOS Bookends, annotations in either Bookends or other ap...

Re: Praise: PDF "open in" feature

Hi Serge, "Open in PDF Expert" used to work for me, but at least after upgrade to iOS14 I cannot get this option any more? Can any one else confirm? I've searched in "More..." at the end of the upper icon line and also "Edit Actions..." and cannot find this option. The PDF Expert icon copies the PDF...
