Re: Error when syncing via iCloud: “record to insert already exists”

Following up on this, forgot to ask: should I send screenshot to the support email as well?

Re: Error when syncing via iCloud: “record to insert already exists”

I’m having the exact same error. Tried the fixes suggested and didn’t work for me either. Fwiw, this is first time I’ve opened bookends iOS since upgrading to iOS 13 today.

Re: Bringing New Device Into Existing iCloud Sync

Thanks Jon! I realize why I was stalling it out is because I would get the "start a new library?" request when launching Bookends on macOS and I was afraid to do so thinking I would want to use the existing one from iCloud. However (for those reading this who might encounter the same issue), startin...

Bringing New Device Into Existing iCloud Sync

I feel like I should be able to figure this out...but struggling so far! I've got Bookends running with iCloud sync on my current Macbook Pro as well as my iPad. I just got a new Macbook Pro and want to get Bookends running on that before I wipe the original MBP (and won't be running Bookends on tha...

Re: iCloud Sync Won't Authenticate on MacOS

Mildly annoying side issue: why does Bookends so often require a log-in on my Mac? I don't remember logging in as often to anything else that I regularly use, although of course I may be forgetting. Plus depending on research requirements I have a habit of opening Bookends a lot for a month or two,...

Re: iCloud Sync Won't Authenticate on MacOS

I guess I've got the same issue. I keep trying to open Bookends on my Mac. I type in the password, it sends me the two-factor authentication code, I type it in, and I get the "Authentication Error" window. Yes, sounds just like what I've run into. And, I hadn't opened Bookends on my Mac for a coupl...

iCloud Sync Won't Authenticate on MacOS

Although it seemed to be syncing find on iOS Bookends, Bookends for MacOS on my Macbook Pro started prompting me to sign in for iCloud drive syncing (as it periodically does). However, every time I've entered my password (and verified the code with 2 factor authentication), the interface in Bookends...

Re: Critical issue with Cloud Sync

When downloading the library file from iCloud, should one overwrite the existing local one (that as, "replace" rather than save as a new name)?

Re: How to migrate from Papers3 to Bookends

As my first post here - and after spending quite a bit of time over the last two days figuring out how to move my Papers 3 library over to Bookends and get it working with iCloud syncing for attachments - I wanted to say a quick thanks to Matthias for this script, and to others who have contributed ...
