Bets way to enter subtitles in references?

In the reference data, I’d like to be able to include both a title and a subtitle separately, then when it gets exported to bibtex and formatted properly the full “title: subtitle” will come up the first time the reference is cited, but in subsequent references it will only use “title.” Is there an ...

Re: Export feature requests

Just a +1 for this, and also a nod to what Serge says, I think this would be a perfect example of what Siri Shortcuts could enable (in addition to the other things I’ve mentioned in previous posts.)

Re: Search from main page

I’d actually like to add another request to this: also the ability to copy the citation info from the pdf viewer screen. This would enable viewing/reading the pdf then easily copying the citation info without having to go back to the main reference view screen. Again, small fries, maybe, but it’s th...

Re: Shortcuts support

Here are the two things which I think would be most useful, in order of importance (there are plenty more, but this would go a long way): 1. Export reference details: including annotations, bookends link, temp citation/full citation, and export citation—i.e. like BibTeX, or whichever format is selec...

Shortcuts support

I briefly mentioned this in another conversation, but thought it deserved its own thread: What are the chances that we can see full-fledged Shortcuts support from Bookends for iOS? This could enable deep automation that would truly make Bookends a power app on iOS, and allow it to communicate with a...

Re: Cross linking support for Devonthink

For example, do long tap on an item row in DEVONthink and choose Copy Item Link. Insert it into a note field of the reference in Bookends for iOS. The next time you will want to open that item in DEVONthink from Bookends just open a note and tap (long tap) on a link. DEVONthink will be launched nav...

Cross linking support for Devonthink

Devonthink just updated their app so this should now be available—I’m just not really sure how it works or what it is. Does anyone have a sense for what this enables or how to link the two apps?

Re: Autolinking Bookends and DEVONthink records

That did it! Thanks so much.

Trying to figure out the ideal writing/referencing workflow, so if you get a moment would love to hear how you swing it. Also trying to make this work on iOS, which is what I primarily work on. Thanks again.

Re: Autolinking Bookends and DEVONthink records

Hi, you'll have to excuse my ignorance here, but I've been trying to work this out and just can't swing it. I want to be able to use the script that works on selected items, but instead of creating a linked record in DT with the PDF, I want to create a blank note. I modified part of it so that it re...

Re: URL links from within iOS?

Any update on when this might take place? Would love to see it happen as well. For reference, here’s the workflow I created: Create an item in Bookends, export it using bibtex, run a shortcut that grabs the title and author, and then use those to create a new .md file in a designated devonthink fold...

Move multiple references to folder

Another small, but useful request. Often I find myself adding a handful of references, which I then want to organize into a specific folder. However, right now, the ‘Manage’ button on top does not give the option for moving references into folder (you can only export them(, and you have to go into e...

Re: Bibtex export

Hi @Sayyaar, this might be a little off topic, and you'll have to excuse my ignorance, but I'm interested in how you get pandoc running on a remote server like that. What's required to set up something like that? Does it actually do all the pandoc conversions for you, bibliography and all? I would l...

Search from main page

This is small, but I sometimes find it annoying that you have to go into one of the groups (even if it’s just ‘All’) in order to conduct a search. Could there not be a universal search from the main page right when you open Bookends?

Export notes with applescript

Hi, I'm looking for an applescript that will export *just* the written notes that I create (not the highlights). I considered trying to modify this OPML script https://www.sonnysoftware.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3882 but my problem is that I create notes using Bookends on my iPad and the notes ...

Re: Some feature requests

I think you are talking about Bookends on Mac whereas I’m talking iOS. If you see the first attached screenshot, when I add a PDF (and this one even has a doi!) the only options are to “attach to new empty reference” and “find a reference to attach”—neither gives you the option to autocomplete the r...
