Re: The pdf could not be saved. You don't have permission.

It appears to be a Preview problem. I quit the app, discarding any unsaved changes -- not that many, so no great loss -- and everything is back to normal.

Re: The pdf could not be saved. You don't have permission.

I suspect you're right.

But, in the interest of continuing the documentation, here's yet another dialogue box:

The pdf could not be saved. You don't have permission.

Well, this is new. As in new this morning and with no update of which I was aware. I use Bookends as my reference manager, and, as most of you here know, it saves PDFs to a folder in the never-never land of iCloud Drive. This morning, after opening a PDF to read and highlight, I am getting a dialogu...

This fix, while not intuitive, works.

Re: text wrap of columns in basic view

I'll have to disagree that moving the title to the last column somehow solves the issue: there's only so much real estate when I'm working on a MacBook. (And, as you know, there's only so long a line can be, whether it's text or a row in a table, before the human eye and brain can't quite keep it al...

text wrap of columns in basic view

I keep my view in Bookends pretty simple: author, date, title, keywords. It makes it easy for me to scan when I don't necessarily know what I want to search for. But even with these few columns, something like titles get shortened a bit too much. Is there a way to "wrap" (as it is sometimes describe...

Re: One library or many libraries

I've been working with one big library, but have always assumed that when I finish my current project and start working on a new topic, I'll create a new library to go with it. This. I've got a large current project that has multiple dimensions, and a number of possible outputs, but there's also a ...

One library or many libraries

I am still a fairly new user to Bookends, and I was just wondering how people used/organized their library/libraries. When I used Papers, I just kept everything in one big file. When I used BibTex, I tended to keep smaller, separate libraries. In general, I prefer the "one big thing" that you then j...

Re: renaming attachments without spaces

I'm just going to add another informal request for this feature here. As a Paper 3 refugee, I'm loathe to have PDFs named in any way that isn't human-readable and not available for manipulation through the CLI. For me that's simply author_date or author_author_date, etc. Just being able to toggle fr...
