Re: Bookends doesn't run in Catalina betas -- update

It looks like Public Beta 8, which came out today, might have fixed it. I've been using Bookends exclusively on my iPad, since it kept crashing on my Mac (particularly when I tried to access any entry that had an attachment.) After updating the beta, I was able to move around my library at will. I e...

Re: Can't find file "BOT•File name" for attachments

Many thanks, Serge. I appreciate the response. Though I'm still not sure exactly how things happened, it looks like the primary issue is that file naming somehow got messed up. The Mac version is looking for the wrong file name. If I tell it to reattach the file, then point it to the correct file in...

Re: Can't find file "BOT•File name" for attachments

Apparently not. Things are still broken. When I saw that iCloud sync was working again, I disabled wifi sync, and tried iCloud instead. (Note: I've been using Bookends for iOS as my "canonical" app for reading and annotating PDFs.) It appeared that sync worked, but none of my annotations came over. ...

Re: Can't find file "BOT•File name" for attachments

Final post for the night. I think I've got things resolved.

Something may have been messed up on the iPadOS side. I deleted the app, then reinstalled and resynced. All seems okay now.

Re: Can't find file "BOT•File name" for attachments

One more new discovery (sorry to have so many posts this evening). Here's what seems to work: reattach files on Mac. Rename files on Mac. Then sync to iOS.

That seems to do the trick.

Re: Can't find file "BOT•File name" for attachments

New discovery. Reattaching files in the Mac app, then syncing via wifi to the iOS app, does indeed break things. Some of the newly-reattached files sync back to iOS, and some don't.

Can't find file "BOT•File name" for attachments

The subject line indicates the chief problem. I'm running the most recent iPadOS 13 and Catalina betas. Since it's not currently possible to log in to iCloud with Bookends for Mac, I'm using wifi sync. My Bookends folder exists in iCloud, and it's properly set as the attachment folder in preferences...

How to delete static group (folder) on iOS?

I've searched the forums, to no avail, so I'm hoping someone can help me out. In the iOS app, I created a folder. I no longer want to use it, so I'd like to get rid of it. There are no references in the folder. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to delete the thing. A long press does not hel...

Re: Copy formatted citation not working

I'm glad I came across this thread. I just installed Bookends for iOS over the weekend, and this glitch was driving me nuts!! I'm relieved to know that (a) I'm not the only one, and (b) there's a fix on the way. (Unfortunately, my decision on whether to purchase Bookends for Mac will have to wait un...
