Go from attachment to Bookends entry?

I don't know if others agree with me, but wouldn't it be great if there was a way to go from an attachment (like a pdf) to the Bookends entry for that paper? Right now, the only way I can do it easily is copy the file name, paste it into the bookends search (All Fields), and then backspace to get ri...

Re: Has Quick Add via JSTOR stopped working?

Hmm. I have no idea what is broken at my end. If I figure it out, I'll report it here in case it helps others. Thx.

Has Quick Add via JSTOR stopped working?

I have tried to add two references this way, and both have come in blank. I suspect something changed at JSTOR.

My last attempt was this link: https://www.jstor.org/stable/41226135

Request: Clear Hits without losing focus

Jon recently said I suggest that you mark any references in the group you want to delete (make them hits) and then switch to the Hits group. Now you can delete them from the library with the Delete key or trash icon. This (and many other operations) would be easier if there was a way to clear the hi...

Re: Recommendations about using notes (particularly with Scrivener)

And this is really down in the weeds, but in case anyone wants to replicate my (baroque) system, I have the following labels in Bookends (not all listed): To Find To Read Have Read Have Notes "Have Notes" means that either (a) I have attached an .rtf document with notes, or (b) I have put notes in a...

Re: Recommendations about using notes (particularly with Scrivener)

All I can say is that I haven't found a place to write notes that I am happy with. 1. If I put them in Bookends Notes (or Sente when I was using it), then I can't find them through any other mechanism except searching in Bookends. I sort of depend on using Spotlight for searching. 2. If I put them i...

Q re: Remove Arbitrary Attachment Folders

I think I have had some references deleted from my database by accident. I think the best way to find them is to change my attachment folder to another place, and then "Remove Arbitrary Attachment Folders…" to move attachments to the new place. Anything that remains in the old attachment folder will...

Re: Type-ahead (string matching) interferes with entering data with accented characters

If anyone comes across this problem, I solved it by rebuilding the keyword index, per Jon's suggestion. It may have had something to do with normalizing unicode characters as well.

Re: Two window behaviors that are very non-intuitive

Hi Jon I don't want to be annoying, but I don't understand what you mean by a "thin title bar." This is the inspector: Reference Links.png and this is the terms list: Term Lists.png I don't see any difference. A visual reminder that the windows behave differently would seem in order to me. But, obvi...

Type-ahead (string matching) interferes with entering data with accented characters

I am trying to enter the author "Martinsson", but as I type the "i" in this name, Bookends attempts to match it with "Martínez" (accented i). Then when I type the "s" following the "i", nothing is entered, so the final name is entered as "Martnsson". There is something weird happening here with acce...
