Re: Regex keywords smart group

Just figured it out - answer in case anyone else has the same question:

Code: Select all

keywords REGEX '(^|\n)Biblical ethics(\n|$)
In the Bookends documentation it says that ^ matches the beginning of a line, but actually I think it matches the beginning of the field (similar for $).

Regex keywords smart group

Hi, If I setup a Smart Group with this query: keywords REGEX 'Biblical ethics’ it returns results, but it also includes keywords that have 'Biblical ethics' as a substring of another keyword. But if I add ^ and $ characters it doesn't match anything: keywords REGEX '^Biblical ethics$’ How can I matc...

Journal glossary in BibTeX export

Hi,

Is there a way to automatically include the journal abbreviation in a format field, e.g. to add a shortbook or shortjournal field to a BibTeX export?

Re: Obtaining the currently selected items in Applescript

Cool, that fixed it. (Though is that something I'll have to do regularly in Bookends?)

Re: Guidance on switching to Bookends

The popup menu reverts to the first item, but whatever you edited for Editors should still be there. Use the popup menu to view the Editor settings again -- did it remember whatever you entered? If so, you're done. Actually this doesn't seem to persist after all. I can send screenshots, and I'm sur...

Re: Right pane scrolling behaviour

In other apps it only seems to happen if the content of the field is actually scrollable. In Bookends, it happens even if only a single line of text is in a multiline text box. Is that normal? Maybe I just haven't encountered that UI in other apps - e.g. in Pages all the text boxes in the right pane...

Right pane scrolling behaviour

A little frustration with the right pane: if the cursor is above a field, two-finger scrolling on the touchpad scrolls the field, rather than the pane. This occurs even if the field does not have any further content to display. As a result, one has to find a blank (i.e. non-field) part of the right ...

Re: Guidance on switching to Bookends

Next little challenge: I've got a fair number of documents with with references to citation keys generated by the BibTeX export from Zotero. These don't appear in an RIS Zotero export. Any suggestions on how to import with citekeys intact? I can e.g. just retain a copy of the Zotero .bib file and us...
