Re: Keyboard shortcuts in floating citation window

Turns out the solution was really straightforward (and had nothing to do with Bookends) and I post it here for others' reference: Turning on the "Use keyboard navigation to move focus between controls" does the trick (and then you can use up/down arrows to choose an option in the list). This is in S...

Keyboard shortcuts in floating citation window

I couldn't find any mention on this in the manual, so I don't know if it is possible or not, but here goes: In the "second" floating citation window after you press control-command-Y, is there a way to get over to to the Modifiers drop down and make a choice using the keyboard? I know I can tab betw...

Webarchive preview "stuck" on different archive

I discovered this strange behavior in 13.3.1 re: webarchives. It is a bit hard to explain, but I will do my best. Whenever I save a webarchive to an Internet reference through Bookends Browser, that webarchive (let's call it webarchive1) gets "stuck" in the preview window. If I I switch to a differe...

PDFs dragged out Bookends "corrupt"

I am pretty confident that I used to be able to just drag a PDF, using the little "page" icon in the PDF viewer to my email program, desktop, etc. Since Catalina, that no longer works—or rather, it appears to work just fine but the PDF has a size of zero and is labeled as corrupt when I try to open ...

Re: Feature Request

You can't remove fields with no content (if that's what you mean by undefined), but you can rearrange the order of the fields with Command-drag. Wow, had no idea you could do that. These little nice features of Bookends never cease to amaze me. On this note, is there a way to move a field from one ...

Re: Excel to Bookends

Thanks for the suggestions - much appreciated. I have Mendeley and Zotero on my Mac so I've decided to do a bit of self-help and software testing. I'm pretty disappointed with Bookends' inability to add a book by using the ISBN. I tried numerous and Bookends failed to find any! Zotero on the other ...

Re: Excel to Bookends

I believe, though not 100% sure, that Endnote can import a spreadsheet and Bookends can import Endnote records flawlessly. This post from Endnote forum might be helpful: https://community.endnote.com/t5/EndNote-How-To/Exporting-from-Excel-to-Endnote/m-p/132815/highlight/true#M24388 (if the link does...

Re: Unable to load attachments

Thanks Serge, and sorry for the slow response. I completely forgot to manually move the attachments, but did this now and all seems to work fine. Thanks again.

Unable to load attachments

Over the last couple of weeks I have been unable to download many attachments on my iPad. These are attachments that for some reason do now have the preview thumbnail in the reference window - though the attachment exists (the reference has the little paperclip item in the reference list, and I have...

Re: The era of "cloud reference managers"?

Jodi - I haven't tested this but I think that, in theory, if you use Zotero with the Zotfile add-on you can customize quite extensively the naming and location of Zotero attachments so that, coupled with Bookends flexibility, you can in theory have both programs point to the same PDF (in Zotero ling...

Re: Clicking on Browser icon crashes Bookends

I have noticed this too. It seems to happen with sites that have a lot of embedded content (flash video, audio, etc.). Next time it happens I will send logs to support as well.

Re: The era of "cloud reference managers"?

I, too, fairly regularly "stray" from Bookends as while Bookends remains (to my mind) the single best reference management experience, some of the others mentioned are much better suited to collaborative writing and work in a cross-platform setting. But unless you really need either of those two thi...

Re: Sorting of bibliography question

I double-checked and they appears not to be the case. However, I created a new reference with the same information and it sorts appropriately, so there must have bene something like that. Now I feel like a doofus. Thank you for your help.
