Re: Hashtag as first line in notes is converted to a header

I'll work around this issue since it only affects the view in the notes view stream.

Re: How to find attachments with annotations and review annotations?

I use labels (tags???) for other reasons. I am setting the ratings (to one star) to denote that I have annotated the file. The approach to display annotations as notes does not work with annotations that are boxes around figures. And it does not give a way to group or collect (assemble or filter) th...

Hashtag as first line in notes is converted to a header

I am using hashtags in notes. In the notes view stream, Bookends takes #hashtag as a HEADER when it appears as the first line in a note. I can get around this by adding blank line as the first line in the note field. It may be beneficial to require a space between a "hash" and the text to create a h...

How to find attachments with annotations and review annotations?

How does one assemble a collection of PDF attachments that have annotations? How does one review the annotations (e.g. as per the review that can be done in Bookends on iPadOS)?

Re: How do we view/manage a list of annotations on a PDF?

> You'll have to use some other app if you want to deal globally with annotations.

OK. This explanation is a bit clearer than the manual. I still don't know however where to find the setting that is supposed to enable or disable the *Use Annotation View for PDFs* setting.

How do we view/manage a list of annotations on a PDF?

I annotated a PDF using an off-line app (Highlights). I imported the PDF. I can see that the annotations are present in the updated PDF. Page 116 of the manual says ... If you have enabled *Use Annotation View for PDFs* in the Action pop-up, you can search, annotate, and markup PDFs, features that a...

Re: Bring the DOI to the main section

I also would appreciate having the DOI (and PMCID/PMID) in the Main editor. I am frustrated that I always have to switch tabs to update the DOI when I do a copy+paste operation from elsewhere. I would hope in a future UI update, if more than one tab is used for meta information, the meta information...

Add/Remove groups to WiFi sync service?

I am using WiFi sync with only a specific group to the main macOS library. I have decided that I want to add additional groups to the sync setup.

Where should we go to add/remove groups that we want to sync after we have already initiated the WiFi sync? What steps do we need to take?

Thoughts on menu bar and context click options

When I context click on a specific bibliography item in the main window, I am a bit overwhelmed/confused by the choices. Some of them seem out of place because they are already some where else or are global actions to the entire list rather than actions only on the specific selection. * The first tw...
