Re: Bookends Tools, an Alfred workflow of 8 different functions

Iandol, Wow, you've been busy! While I currently don't use Alfred, this post is giving me pause to consider it. Up to now my needs have been relatively simple, but just started using DevonThink Pro (DTP) to help correlate and manage my research. I'm currently using it in parallel with Evernote since...

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

I had images from when I imported from Sente. I added this feature to account for others who might also transition from Sente.

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

I'll get on gisthub tomorrow to get the revised code. I can't thank you enough for making this a better tool. As for the images, the tags <iimg> and </iimg> encapsulate the image. I discovered this using the iHex application on the resulting .opml file after I tested the script with an image I captu...

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

Jon, Thanks. Aside from that digital ball and chain called e-mail, my main tools are Bookends, Scrivener and a genealogy program called Evidentia. All are written by individual entrepreneurs with constant connections with their users. A strong powerful testament to the value of listening to customer...

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

AsafKeller, I would not use it to replace the Bookends Unique ID (ref_nbr in my script) since this is used to retrieve the precise reference in Bookends and its associated information. Additionally, I would continue to use the ref_nbr in the temporary citation as again this is just a key into the Bo...

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

iandol, Also, you have your own keywords system, and do not use the Bookends keywords (line 341)? No, I use the Bookends keywords. They are embedded in within the notes and preceded with the percent sign (%). Thanks for the improvements. When you added the URI, does Scrivener recognize it; thus allo...

Re: Ability to Use AppleEvents to Retrive Temporary Citiation Key

iandol, I just posted a revised script which removed the CMD-Y. On both forums -- literally just minutes ago. As you stated the keyboard command and the unintended consequence of replacing text. As for the temporary citation format, without doing this keyboard command, I can not extract the user's d...

Re: AppleScript to Export Notes in OPML

Based on some feedback from a user on the Literature & Latte forum, I've updated the script to remove the keyboard command (CMD-Y) which caused the unintended consequence of overwriting your Scrivener text. The revised script is provided at the bottom of this reply. Additionally, there was some conc...

Re: Ability to Use AppleEvents to Retrive Temporary Citiation Key

Jon, Again, thanks for the quick reply. I'll convey this information concerning the use of temporary citation and ability to do Proofreading scans back to nontroppo over on the Scrivener post. As part of the OPML notecards I create, I add the temporary citation on each note. This allows me to work o...

Ability to Use AppleEvents to Retrive Temporary Citiation Key

Jon, A user on the Literature & Latte forum pointed out an issue with my Bookends to OPML AppleScript dealing with the temporary citation key I create -- its the default {author, date, #id} format. This user changes the temporary citation format within the Bookends preferences and I don't see how to...

Thanks. Understand. At least I know the AppleScript is providing the proper data and what I need to do within Bookends to fix my issues.

Issue with RIS Formated GUID to Retrieve Type

Jon, I am finally finalizing my AppleScript to extract references and notes into OPML. I am encountering an unexpected result when I use the GUID system event with the RIS formatted citation style. I am using this to get the reference type after the TY label. The issue is that I get JOUR returned fo...
