Bookends Browser: high CPU usage, URL works smooth in Safari

Lately, I have been having issues with Bookends Browser viewing webpages. Load times are long and Bookends uses <99% processor for 20-25 seconds, particularly when clicking on a link to a PDF. Occasionally, I even had to force quit Bookends. The URLs where this is happening are random journals or ar...

Re: Optional mode for fullscreen PDF?

Oh no, that widescreen lay-out in the 13.4.4 update is a very useful addition.

Sorry for posting, I hadn't seen the update.

Optional mode for fullscreen PDF?

Ever since version 13.0, I find the full screen PDF implementation not optimal for my workflow, particularly because the tabs with the author (year) don't give me all the information I need to select a PDF. For instance, I have multiple Same Author / Same Year tabs open, which makes it difficult to ...

Re: Bookends doesn't run in Catalina betas -- update

Bookends crashes on the most recent PB of Catalina, I did multiple rebuilds. The library works just fine on Mojave.

It is an extensive crash log, but I will send mine shortly

Re: Database engine error, compressor error

On the iMac, I repaired/rebuild/verified/reindexed the database before copy/pasteing it.

But unfortunately, that does not work either.

Database engine error, compressor error

Hi, I use Bookends on my MacBook Pro, I have the latest version of Bookends and MacOS. Since a few weeks, I keep getting this error (see attachment) that forces Bookends to quit. I completely uninstalled Bookends (cache/application support/ plist) and reinstalled to no avail. I also ran at least two...

Adding keyword to batch of articles

I read through the manual to find an answer to my (imho) very simple question - can you add a keyword to a batch of articles with one click? To illustrate: I have 9000+ articles for a meta-analysis that all need a simple keywords 'Needs to be scanned' (so that my candidates know which are scanned (k...

Re: Feature request: easier smart group set up for keywords

Dropping in here, because this is an 'issue' I have as well. I loved how Sente was able to create sublevel tags, and I have yet to figure out how this is done in Bookends....

Re: Cloud Sync error

I have been stuck on an iCloud 503 error for iOS Bookends AND an 'CKErrorDomain error 7', resulting in non syncing for the iOS devices I have. No problem with desktop Bookends though.The unlinking-resyncing does not help, nor does a reinstall of iOS Bookends. My guess is that this is an iCloud error?

Re: Batch autocomplete PDFS?

A quick follow-up to this. I did notice that Browzine will export DOI for several journals (although not all). However, it does not place the DOI in the relevant Bookends 'Additional Fields' DOI field. So when I do 'Autocomplete paper', Bookends will have the DOI in the import window (see below for ...

Re: Batch autocomplete PDFS?

Good one - Browzine only exports the article title, so that'll be the culprit. I have contacted them with the same request as you.

Thanks again for the quick answer, have yourself a good weekend.

Re: Batch autocomplete PDFS?

Thanks for the quick answer.

I have tried Autofill From Internet, but the problem I have then is that the All Fields or Selected Field is greyed out so I cannot start doing the autofill, even though the articles have a DOI: when I do the autocomplete for each article, it automatically updates.
