Re: Formatting Text in Fields

Thank you for your quick reply. I have tried several fonts. It didn't work. Then I changed the settings of my Mac from Dark Mode to Light Mode. Now the italics remain, both in the reference edit pane and in the formatted reference. So, for now, I will stick with the Light Mode of my Mac mini until t...

Formatting Text in Fields

I am not sure whether there is any topic on this: after the last update (April 2020), the formatting of a part of the title (and other fields apparently) using italic or bold face disappears. I apply the italics or bold, but after I click on another reference, and come back to the formatted one, the...

Re: The Bookends Guide to the SBL format

Ok. I re-read the mentioned sections. Nevertheless, I cannot find what I want. The issue is this: I have a reference type called BOOK . I format the citation option like this: a, t ~, ed. ~e | ~, trans. ~u3* ~, ~u2~ ed.~ ~, ~u13~ vols.~|~ ~ |~, ~j v` (`{u11;$ repr., $} |~; ~, l: u, d`)` This results...

Re: The Bookends Guide to the SBL format

Thank you. So, I’ll have to wait for a fix. Now, a more punctual question: In a reference, in the Edition field for a book, I have the word “rev.”. Now, in the footnote, “rev.” is fine. But in the bibliography list, I need to have “Rev.” (capital “R”). Can this be done?

Re: The Bookends Guide to the SBL format

Thank you. I did that, but some custom reference types (e.g. “Unused”, etc.) were not saved with the same name (e.g. “Volume in Multivolume”). On a new computer, they have to be again renamed. Is there any way to avoid that?

Re: The Bookends Guide to the SBL format

The easiest way is to double click the file and let Bookends install it for you. You can do this manually if you prefer, moving the format to ~/Library/Application Support/Bookends/Custom Formats Jon Sonny Software Hi, How can I export a format (in my case the SBLHS2) so that others can double clic...

Re: The Bookends Guide to the SBL format

Hi, I am preparing an SBLHS2 format for Bookends. While I managed to arrange the format for books, journals etc., I am stuck with the formatting for the lexica both one word or more words citation. For one word, SBLHS2 has: LEH, s.v. “ἐνθύημα.” For two or more words, LEH, s.vv. “ἐνθύημα,” “λεαίνω.” ...

Re: Conditional formatting for two editors "and" without <comma>

That's set in the format, Names Punctuation tab. Where you tell Bookends what to put between the penultimate and last editor, you enter and ^, and Bookends will use what comes before the ^ for two editors and what comes after the ^ if there are more than two editors.

That's a Cited Page, right? You have to tell Bookends what to output before the Cited Page in the format (Citation Options tab, Common Settings). In this case, a comma and space.
Yes, that's cited page. Your suggestion solved the issue. Thank you very much!

Re: The Bookends Guide to the SBL format

Any SBL 2nd edition style with no issues whatsoever?

Grenz and John R. Franke, Beyond Found...
