Restore deleted style

Hi, Sorry if this has been asked before. I'm finishing a thesis and in a bit of a hurry... I deleted a style from the formats manager (Turabian 7th edition), thinking this was the way to return the style to its default version (I think I read that somewhere sometime), but it appears it is simply gon...

Re: Feature request: temporary citation tool tip

Thank you Jon, and point taken. I was really hoping for some workaround. I will cite by content in the future but with my current project (which is in its final stages) this won't be of much help. Would you kindly specify how to use Floating Citations to look up the reference? This did occur to me, ...

Feature request: temporary citation tool tip

Hi, I'm writing in Scrivener, using temporary citations with footnotes. When quoting many works of the same author, I often find myself reduced to guessing which work a placeholder (in curly brackets) refers to. (The guesswork is compounded by the fact that some of my sources are republications, mea...

Auto-populate group with references used in document?

Hello! Perhaps this is a strange request, perhaps it isn't. I'm writing up my PhD thesis which has a lot of references in it. My Bookends PhD library is even larger, about four times the number of titles found in the thesis. Here's the thing: I would like to double-check and harmonise all my referen...

Bookends Word plugin not working

Hi, I've been using Bookends for some time without any issues but now it is failing me and I have no idea why. When I try to scan a Word document (compiled from Scrivener, if that matters) the Bookends plugin seems to be doing its work at first. That is, it takes me to Bookends where a window opens ...

Re: Optimal combination of DT and BE?

I managed to make it work after all, sort of. I've successfully imported the script to KM, and when I invoke the script via the hotkey I assigned to it the dialogue window does indeed pop up. But after I've filled in the various fields (title, page number, comment etc.) the script, rather than creat...

Re: Optimal combination of DT and BE?

I just realised there's a trial version of Keyboard Maestro. I'm a little embarrassed to ask, but after a week of getting into both BE and DTP I'm lacking the willpower to learn the intricacies of yet another app: would anyone kindly give me some quick advice on how to implement terrydev's KM script...

Re: Optimal combination of DT and BE?

Late to the conversation, but I have to say I'm in awe of terrydev's workflow, and will try to emulate it. Thanks to the KM macro he's posted in this thread, this shouldn't be too difficult. I've been trying to accomplish something very similar these past couple of days on the DTP trial version (wit...

Attach DEVONthink folder to Bookends reference

Hi, Is it possible to attach a DEVONthink folder (not a text file) to a Bookends reference? Here's why: when taking literature notes, I create sequentially numbered individual text files in DEVONthink for each quote/comment/etc. These individual chunks of text are bundled in a parent folder linking ...

Font & icon size in groups pane

Hi, I hope there isn't already a thread on this (I've searched through these forums and the Bookends manual but couldn't find an answer): is it at all possible to change the default font and icon size of the groups pane? If I were able to make groups and folders somewhat smaller, I could fit many mo...
