Changing Day/Month order

Is there a way to change the day/month order. In my "newspaper" type, I've been filling in the Day (#) Month (e.g. 10 June) in this format. 8 March (2017 is filled in the date category). Chicago style, however, requires that the date be written as : Month Day, Year. Example: Manjoo, Farhad. 2017. “S...

Is there a way to delete reference types/reset to default?

I messed up a few reference types in the preferences menu. Is there a way to delete them or restore the defaults? Or do i have to manually change the metadata fields?

Subsequent Citation

I'm looking for some help with formatting my citations. I'm formatting according to the American Sociological Association (ASA) which requires that ALL authors be listed in the first citation and then subsequent citation use et al. I see in the custom citation section it gives you the subsequent opt...

Dark Mode - Formats Manager

The field texts in the formats manager is not inverted. In dark mode, the text is black and difficult to see. Can this be changed? (see photo).

Also, the word REFS in the preferences window is blurred.

Re: Multiple refs in floating citations

You can select multiple refs if they're in the same list. You can accumulate selected from different searches. Can you explain how you can accumulate selected references from different searches? As soon as I select the second reference and hit enter, only the second reference appears in the text. T...

Multiple refs in floating citations

Great update with 13.4. I'm a bit confused with the selection of multiple references in floating citations. I'm assuming this can be done by searching in the floating citation window and then using Control+ Click / Shift + Click to grab multiple refs. This is super helpful, especially for citing mul...

Re: Watch folder duplicates

Sorry, I wasn't aware if Library vs Database were technical distinctions. I've seemed to resolve the issue. The watch folder was synced to my icloud. I'm not sure how this engages in a replication of the files, but moving the WATCH folder offline to my local harddrive only fixes the duplication issue.

Re: Watch folder duplicates

It is configured to move.

This problem is ongoing. Reboots do not seem to fix the problem.

Here is a screenshot of what my imports look like after I've added a few PDFs to the Watch Folder by dragging and dropping or by saving directly from browser to Watch folder.

Watch folder duplicates

Whenever I download a PDF to the watch folder, it gets imported with duplicates. All 3 entries will have the name of the PDF with "reference metadata not found online" but only one will carry the attachment. I simply delete the other two and use Autocomplete Paper to retrieve the metadata from googl...

Formatting in-text citations for government departments

I'm wondering if there is a way to have the in-text citation for certain entries conform to a different set of rules. For example, there are some citations that should read (Government of Canada 2014) or (Department of Justice 2014) but in the bib they are always formatted as Justice, Department of....

Floating citations multiple refs

Hi all, Apologies if this has been answered, but I cannot find it in the archives or in the FAQ. I'm currently using Scrivener to write a dissertation and am wondering what the easiest way to input multiple references into my manuscript using floating citations. For example, if I want to cite both S...
