Re: Live Search — OR option?

Thanks Jon. The workflow I am trying to set up involves creating search terms outside of Bookends, for example when I have to convert finalised and formatted references from a LibreOffice or Word document but I need to find them in Bookends — I want to be able to quickly view potential matches. For ...

Converting Author-date formatted citations in Word back to citekeys

I had a manuscript in Word which had finalised citations as plain text in author-date format (created by another bibliography system) and I wanted to get them back to temporary citations that could be scanned by Bookends. This ruby script takes selected text like this in Word: (Chichilnisky and Kalm...

Live Search — OR option?

Currently, as I understand it, the Live Search field performs AND / NOT searches. But it appears it doesn't support OR searches? This would be useful, and perhaps I have just missed how to do it, but if not could it be considered as a feature request for the future, barring any technical reasons? Id...

Re: [Feature Request] Drag Marooned Attachment onto Reference

As always, many thanks for your continued development and support. If there was an award for the mot sustained and continual development for a software product (probably in the history of software development considering when Bookends was first released), Bookends would win gold, silver and bronze 8)

[Feature Request] Drag Marooned Attachment onto Reference

This is a minor feature request: it would be nice if we could drag the item from the marooned attachments manager directly onto a Bookends item. Currently we have to click on Show in finder, then drag from there, so there is a two-step solution; however directly would be more streamlined... It would...

Re: [Feature Request] Helpful Features for BibTeX Users

File > Export References > Export With Last Settings
This would still be useful even with the new menu, it would basically use the previous settings including the format and file name etc. — because it is in the menu we can assign a shortcut to it so a BibTeX export could be a single keypress.

Re: Thank you for the improvements!

Hi Jon, the redesigned menu for export citation is indeed very welcome! One thing I noticed however is that the export progress window is removed? Previously a small window stating how many refs had been completed was shown, but when I just tried it with a selection of ~7600 refs no window was visib...

Re: NodeJS library to sync Zotero data with bookends using JXA

Great, thanks for this. i had previously played with JXA a bit as anything is better than Applescript, using it for one simple script but ultimately was more comfortable sticking to my preferred language Ruby for larger scripts. Having some clear examples of using JXA will be really helpful for futu...

Re: Marooned attachments: best way to reattach?

Hi Jon, I downloaded the silent update but still get the double attachment when I try to reattach the PDF: Screen Shot 2021-04-06 at 09.18.54_SMALL.png Perhaps this depends on the renaming options. I use a custom format using a {d} t for renaming. Anyway this is fairly minor. Regarding the log, coul...

Re: Marooned attachments: best way to reattach?

Thanks Jon. So the recommendation is to make a copy of my database, use the MAM to move the ~1250 marooned attachments to a temp folder, then use "Find & Attach Local PDFs", spot-check what the result is, remove orphans if necessary, then replace the main database with the copy. Is there a way to ge...

Re: Marooned attachments: best way to reattach?

If I use the attachment-pane right-click "Reattach..." method, I get to select the attachment, then I get this requestor: Screenshot 2021-04-04 at 12.05.01_SMALL.png I select add to existing attachment (i.e. it finds it correctly), which then results in a double-attachment (i.e. reattach does not re...

Marooned attachments: best way to reattach?

Hi Jon, first off thanks so much for the new marooned attachments manager (MAM)! For my core database, somehow I "lost" the links for ~1260 PDFs, they are in my attachments folder and the references are in my database, but the names do not line up (this happened quite some time ago, but I never had ...

Actually, headers are parsed if formatted correctly:
