Re: Error when syncing via iCloud: “record to insert already exists”

Thank you for fixing this. I downloaded the latest Update and seems to be OK once the library has been deleted and then replace with the Cloud version.

Error when syncing via iCloud: “record to insert already exists”

Hello, after months of no-problem usage, I ran into an iCloud sync issue recently where I get the error message: “Error saving record to server, record to insert already exists.”

I am given the option of continuing or suspending.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks!

Phil

Re: Problems and suggestions for iOS

Serge - THANK YOU. It was not apparent to me at all that autofill from internet would use different sources. I thought it was limited to just the attachment. That makes things a lot better. Appreciate the reply.

Re: Problems and suggestions for iOS

I have the same problem as number 1 above. I often get “orphaned” PDFs in Bookends for iOS that I have added using a share extension from Safari. I then obtain the correct DOI but I cannot see how to “quick add” the metadata for an existing PDF based on DOI. I have tried “autofill from Internet”, bu...

Copy formatted citation not working

In Bookends for iOS, I tap on a reference, then tap on the Share icon (top right), then Citation. At the bottom it says “tap to copy” and the style currently selected. Unfortunately, tapping it does nothing and the formatted citation is not copied to the clipboard. The formatted material does not sh...

Re: latest update

All of the above is understood. Question though: when the master copy of the library, say, on a laptop, is destroyed from a HD failure, and the library file is not on DropBox, what happens to all of the other devices using that library? Can a new library file be saved from the Cloud on another devic...

Re: Bookends Browser misremembering password

Thanks for the reply. What confounds me is that I do get an auto-filled password, just not the correct one. Too bad I cannot somehow force Bookends to use the correct one.

Bookends Browser misremembering password

Hi, For my university's off-site login, I have the setting checked in Preferences to remember the password (save login to Keychain), but each time I restart Bookends the incorrect password is auto-filled. In Safari, for the same URL, the correct password is auto-filled. Is there something I can do t...

Re: "References were not sent by Papers 3"

Thanks. I had to use the XML export from Papers 3. Could not get the AppleScript to work.

"References were not sent by Papers 3"

I am following the instructions located at http://www.sonnysoftware.com/updates/updatehistory.html to attempt to import my Papers 3 refs into Bookends. I have already exported the PDFs from Papers 3 to the Bookends main attachments folder (as indicated in the instructions). When I click on File | Im...
