Thank you for the improvements!

Thank you for significantly improving the ease to export citations and for providing a starting point to manage orphaned attachments.

Re: Sharing into Bookends from RIS link on an articles?

Sent to support.

Here it is as well.

FWIW, I can save probably save and import. What I want however is to have the option to export via Share by clicking on the RIS button icon.

Sharing into Bookends from RIS link on an articles?

How do I get the Share extension to recognize an RIS link to export into Bookends iPadOS? I am viewing an article on line (Safari). That article has three icons, Share (to social media sites), View In (Mendeley), and Export (RIS). I click AND HOLD on the RIS button to bring up an RIS pane and a cont...

Re: Best method to recognize new annotations from other apps?

I have done further tests with Highlights and Devonthink To Go. I can work seamlessly between these two. I can create a new annotation in Highlights and it appears automatically appears in DTTG.

Best method to recognize new annotations from other apps?

I have a PDF in BE. I shared it out to DevonThink To Go 3. I made annotations in it. I shared it back to BE. Later, I added additional annotations in DTTG. I tried to share back the newly annotated PDF. The PDF in BE does not update. I had a similar problem using Highlights to add new annotations to...

Feature Request: Control Information Shown in List View

I would like an ability to adjust what shows in the list view (left-most panel). For example, each reference currently shows this: * (small font): journal with full details ... (attachment icon) * (large bold font): title * (small font): all authors I would prefer to show this: * (large font): title...

Experience with Bookends versus ReadCube Papers

I had a moment to compare working in Bookends to working in ReadCube Papers. The friction for me to do certain things in Bookends became glaring. Here are some examples: * Try sorting a list in the main panel to bring to the top only those files that have attachments or not. → NOT POSSIBLE * Try sel...

Re: Collaboration with co-authors--ideas?

My lesson is that only one platform should be used for reference management and only one person should be in charge of citation management. Reference management is all about collecting the information. You all need to have the same platform where you post the information and can all go to find that ...

Re: Is there any interest in syncing Bookends for iOS with Zotero?

I will hope to dump Mendeley, primarily because it is dropping its iOS client. My team uses Windows. I need a replacement. Zotero has been recommended on Mac Power Users. Having Bookends to manage my own library (not in Zotero) and my team's library (in Zotero) as separate entities would be wonderfu...

Re: Struggling with Managing Attachments *En Masse*

> You seem to want some other kind of app focusing on file management, which is not a reference-centric app like Bookends. Maybe the DEVONTHINK apps would be helpful. I don't see the point of addressing these issues again (and won't). (sigh) I respect your decision. I simply want to be able to manag...

Re: No Split View Mode for Two Libaries?

The problem appears to be that the minimum width of the window for Bookends is too large to fit in half of a 16in MacBook Pro screen in its default resolution mode. Two library windows cannot be put exactly side by side on that screen -- they overlap. Folks who have screens that are 16in or smaller ...
