Re: Floating Citation Window Issue WITH Solution

Thanks for sharing this. I wouldn't have thought that Full Disk Access would be required in this setting (it doesn't for me), but macOS can be very mysterious.

Re: Batch autocomplete PDFS?

Bookends doesn't rename a PDF downloaded from Bookends for iOS.

I don't really understand the problem you're having, please contact tech support directly and perhaps include a series of screen snaps that illustrate what is wrong.

Re: Zettlr

Bookends can export BibTeX and it can export the unique ID (if you tweak the format). But you have to actively export, I believe Zotero exports automatically. Whether what Bookends does is sufficient for Zettlr I don't know (I never heard of it before).

Re: iCloud New Group

I don't know where those folders came from. I suggest you move the PDFs out of those "Group" folders (where Bookends can't find them, BTW) and into the general pool Then delete the (now empty) folders.

Re: Bookends notecard vs PDF note

Bookends notes reside in the database.

PDF notes reside in the PDF.

That's the difference, and the implications thereof (for searching, formatting, emailing, etc).

Re: Papers to Bookends export script

I don't understand. Bookends imported the weird attachment names (with the references) and the links work, finding the PDFs with the weird names? But you want the PDFs moved somewhere else. Is that it?

Re: [Suggestion] (Smart) group/folder icons change

Thanks for the suggestions. We'll see if there will need to be changes for Big Sur and, if so, to these icons.

Re: Bookends Notecards have white (invisible) text in dark mode

That happens when you make a notecard with header in Dark Mode. It's fixed in the next update.

Re: PDFpenPro

Drag and drop of the PDF proxy icon to the dock works well, I just tried it. If you don't know what the PDF proxy icon is, please refer to the User Guide (Help menu) for the various tools in the PDF toolbar.

The next update will probably be in a few weeks.

Re: PDFpenPro

OK.

In the meantime, you can open a PDF in PDFpenPro by dragging the proxy PDF icon in Bookends onto the image of PDFpenPro in the Dock.

Re: Potential improvements

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll add them to the feature request list. One note about PDF full screen. The "focused" view is by design. We suggest you add references you want to switch between to the PDF tab bar (assuming they have PDFs), which works in full screen. If you still want the full screen...
