Floating Citation Window Issue WITH Solution

I was unable to access the floating citation window on my Mac. Jon had commented elsewhere that perhaps the OS was not allowing Bookends to talk to other apps through the OS (a paraphrase of the comments). In any case, by allowing Bookends 'full disk access' in the privacy settings, I am now able to...

This would quite helpful, for example, in use in sharing highlighted text to DevonThinks3 and perhaps other apps that can accept the notecards via Applescript, by...

iCloud Workaround

I understand that Bookends databases are stored in an iCloud folder. By definition, the iCloud account is linked to a single Apple ID. But, if I have an additional device on a different iCloud account, has anyone devised a workaround to share the database so that the second device will remain up-to-...

Re: Praise: PDF "open in" feature

Though I’m not a Goodreader user, I had installed it on my phone. I shared from Bookends to Goodreader. GR asked if I wanted to read the file in or outside of the app. I guessed and chose outside. File then opened, I was able to highlight and highlights were visible in Bookends. So, lots of words, b...

Feature Suggestion - Autocomplete

Is it possible to add a version of autocomplete to the IOS version. Perhaps with a smaller number of options. My shortlist is PubMed, google scholar and Crossref.

Syncing to Multiple Databases?

I’m wondering if anyone has identified a method for adding a reference to two separate databases in a single action or step?

Re: Sharesheet Issue Again

So, though I had only added one app in recent memory, I spent some time systematically removing Sharesheet items created by IOS as well as deleting some unused apps. After doing so, the Copy to Bookends share sheet item reappeared. Go figure!

Sharesheet Issue Again

Good Morning,

After months of flawless function, ‘Copy to Bookends’ has disappeared from the sharesheet on my iPad Mini-5. Has anyone else experienced this occurrence?

TY.

Re: Praise: PDF "open in" feature

Closed the document in PDF Expert and returned to Bookends. In fact I’m willing to bet that if you Bookends and your second app of choice side-by-side, you should be able to watch the annotations emerge in Bookends as you annotate in the other.

Re: Sharesheet Update

Understood sir, but the utility of your software is impacted by this issue. Hence, I would think that Sonny Software has a stake in the matter.

Re: Sharesheet Update

Sure. Agreed. Can your team offer a workaround, pls?

P.S. No issue with the sharesheet on my iPhone 8 Plus or on my iPad Pro 3 G. Just the IP Mini5.
