Re: Floating citations multiple refs

As for order in the group, that's determined when the reference is scanned. The format tells Bookends how to order them. I didn't know that. I made a test in a new document with "Test text {Ryan et al., 2019, #73181} {Pйrez Guevara, 2017, #75655} {Mills, 2017, #48061} test text" and using the defau...

Re: Adding a large collection of PDF books

I am wondering if the "Calibre" e-book organization application may be better for you, especially since you rarely need to cite books.

APA 7th edition

Hi.

Will you be providing the (new/imminent) 7th edition of APA format as a default distribution within Bookends in due course?

Tks

Copy from one database to another

How do you copy selected references and attachments from one database to another? I'm sure it is so obvious but it is not fastening in my head....

Re: Another copy of Bookends is running - override

I get caught by this occasionally too and I need to "remote control" back to the computer over the network to close the application. So have a +1 if it would not be too much work to implement. Alternatively, maybe the application's registration could be locked to the user's iCloud account. Then pira...

Re: Feature Request

I must try that feature too. It would be stellar if THAT change of preferences could be synchronised too (between instances), e.g. laptop and desktop.

Re: Push/background/auto-sync

I was referring to Bookends and IOS / iCloud sync. My perception was that it only syncs when "opened" based on a possibly faulty observation, hence the query to the developers.

Re: Lost Library

I know the feeling when things look hopeless and even the "obvious" things don't seem obvious at that point in time.

The main thing is you are back on track!

Push/background/auto-sync

It would be nice if the IOS app could sync in the background at a pre-set interval, e.g. every day/every week in addition to any sync actions that may occur when the program is launched. I tend not to use the IOS app that much (yet) so each time I fire it up there's a long sync and since there is no...

Melinda (Finnish library system)

It would be nice if someone cleverer than I could make an import filter for the "Melinda" catalogue. It is accessible by Z39.50 format but my knowledge of tweaking filters on Bookends is close to zero. An external link if that gives some clues: https://www.kiwi.fi/display/melinda/Union+Catalogues%2C...

Re: Lost Library

It is positive that you have your data back!

Close the library you don't want to open (if you have several open)

File / Open / (select library from the list).

Close Bookends.

Open Bookends: it should open with the last (desired) library.

That's what works here at least.
