Re: File renaming issue

Sorry for the delay, I managed to reproduce the issue. It's a bit more delicate. File renaming works as expected (like you said) when you add file(s) to a reference. However, when the reference already has a file attached, and you ask Bookends to rename the attachment (right click, 'Rename Attachmen...

Re: File renaming issue

On a related note.
The file renaming issue, where in the event of the user choosing the option to replace spaces with underscores, Bookends adds a space before the unique identifier at the end, has returned.
This had been fixed in the last update but is back with the silent update.

Joao.

Re: Remove a reference from a group without deleting reference?

Getting this issue too. Whether using the delete key or the menu option. Only started with this new version.
Edit: Should have read the thread more fully. Restarting Bookends solves the problem.

Re: Bibtex export, problem with LaTex control chars

Don't need to use applescript, its just more efficient to update an existing bibtex library that way. I did not know about the Biblio menu export (was going via the file menu). That is a bit faster but still slow. The problem with doing it via the application (whether through the Biblio or File menu...

Re: Bibtex export, problem with LaTex control chars

Those characters will be escaped if you tell Bookends to generate the bibliography as BibTeX Markup. Hi Jon. Is there a way we can tell Bookends to do this (escape the characters) via applescript? I can see in the user guide that we can choose "rrtf" or "text" class when exporting, but no mention o...

Re: Odd changes of focus when editing fields

I can confirm That i’m getting this issue too. It seems a bit random when bookends is the frontmost app. However, if i’m editing a field (say author), cmd-tab to some other app (i.e. preview to check a pdf), and cmd-tab back to bookends, the focus is no longer on the field that i’m editing but on th...

Re: Corruption of OCR'd PDFs

By PDFKit-compliant I mean any app that uses PDFKit to render and edit PDFs. Most are Hi Jon. Could you tell us which apps use PDFKit (google was not very helpful here) and might be prone to ruining the ocr text layer? You seem to say that PDF Expert and Adobe Reader use it, but I was under the imp...

Re: Sync Issues - References not removed from iPad

Hi, Just came up with the same problem as my iPad is getting full. Is there any news on this issue? If not, in terms of workarounds, do labels and static group assignments get synced to BOT? i.e. if I change the label of a reference, or remove a reference from a static group in Bookends, does this i...

Re: Groups and labels bug?

Group 'status' is a folder. And by labels I mean 'colour labels' when right-clicking the reference.
Problem persists after rebuilding the library. Since I have also been getting some crashes with bookends, I will be sending the library and prefs files to tech support.

Thanks.

Groups and labels bug?

Hi, I'm having an issue with the latest Bookends (12.7.9), that I did not have before, where references are not getting added to groups. Steps to reproduce: - Database has a local group called "Reading" (inside a group called "status"). - It also has a label called "Reading". - Right click on the re...

Re: highlight lost

I've recently updated to the new Bookends for ios so I can give my related two cents on this. I have a related issue with highlights lost. I began losing highlights with the latest Bookends on Tap update on ios 10. This did not happen before (not sure if it was an issue with ios10 or BoT). In this c...
