Suppress ibid while placing author in front

I want to suppress ibid. whenever I place an author in front of the citation using a caret, as "ibid.(x) argues that ..." doesn't make much sense.
However it is not possible to combine = and ^ in the temporary citation. What other way is there to achieve this?

Quoting primary sources through Bookends

I regularly quote primary sources (so far have been doing this manually), and have considered doing so through Bookends. This material is nothing like any of my other reference material, as there is no author, year or title — just a case/file abbreviation and a line number. An in-text-citation might...

How to include cited paragraphs instead of pages in citation

Some of my reference material must be quoted by paragraph not page number. So far I've used the @-sign in my temporary citations of these, but if I choose a format that will insert "p." in front of pages, this will of course lead to misleading citations. Hence I want my temporary citations to distin...

Bookends with MS Powerpoint

Is it possible to use BE with Powerpoint ? When working in Powerpoint a double-click on ctrl (my floating citations trigger key) will open the search window of my BE library, but hitting enter will not insert the citation into the presentation, nor will a drag and drop. Copying the citation and past...

Simple question: How to enter special issues

What's the easiest and most efficient way to enter special issues of a journal ? One way to do this seems to be "add type" via the formats manager. But the downside is if I use different formats, I'll have to be doing this several times... Doesn't seem so handy. In my case I want to quote an article...

Re: Word / Scrivener integration with Bookends

Thank you, this is pretty much what I was looking for ( but couldn't immediately find in the user guide) . However in neither textEdit nor Word the keyboard shortcuts (cmd-y, cmd-ctrl-y, etc.) seem to work. Do you happen to know why? Also the drag-and-drop feature doesn't work very smoothly ; in 80%...

Word / Scrivener integration with Bookends

Does anyone have suggestions for a workflow integrating Bookends with WYSIWYG word processors, specifically Microsoft Word and Scrivener. My default text processor will be TexPad or Scrivener , but I also have to use Word for one project, so Bookends needs to be easily accessible there, too. The "ty...

problem with watch folder

I have set up a watch folder following the instructions from the user guide, and I unchecked the box "don't rename files". However, Bookends does not manage to generate a reference from the DOI and hence attaches the PDF to a new reference entry with the title "Attached file 'original name of PDF' "...

Re: Custom File Renaming Tutorial

Hello, can you provide some more detail on how to do this? e.g. I don't understand which space from the formats manager is used as the input to create the file name, when you use the custom format for renaming. More specifically I have been trying to create my own renaming format but haven't managed...
