Error on launching Bookends 13.5

If you are running Bookends 13.5 you may encounter an error due to a problem in the update detection function (one of the things fixed in 13.5.1). Anyone using version 13.5 should download and install the current version (which at the time of this writing is 13.5.1). https://www.sonnysoftware.com/do...

Re: Detaching Attachments such as Epub

Yes, you found it.

Pressing the Delete key in the Attachment Inspector also works.

Re: Notecard link

Notecards are dynamically created from the contents of the notes field. They aren't objects and they have no identifying information. They're a convenience for dealing with the notes. I can't think of a way of linking to them. I probably should remove the "create hypertext link" from the notecard ri...

Re: attachement link lost / attachement not found

Please download 13.5 again, I think the problem some had with PDFs with accented characters has been resolved.

Re: Keyboard shortcut for new static group?

You can also just drag the references to the groups pane and drop on empty space or any of the fixed groups (e.g. All) and Bookends will offer to create a new groups for you.

Re: iSync

Which app are you referring to that can't access the PDF, Bookends for Mac or for iOS? This is the Bookends Mac forum -- if it's the iOS app you should post this in its forum.

Re: Link to specific pdf page

It's more complicated, of course. What if there is more than one PDF attachment, for example? And the UI would need to be made more complex. As I've pointed out elsewhere on this forum, Bookends is reference-centric, not PDF-centric, and that's reflected in the UI. Bookends already links notecards t...

Re: Link to specific pdf page

Not sure how to do this outside of Bookends. Bookends already keeps track of what page you're on (switch between refs with PDFs displayed and you'll see it scrolls to where you were last). Links to PDFs from outside apps, not so clear how that could be done.

Re: attachement link lost / attachement not found

Thanks. I'm getting the idea that this is somehow releated to iCloud Drive. FWIW, nothing I know of changed in our code between 13.4.8 that would affect finding PDFs, no changes in handling Unicode I'm aware of. This is very puzzling, and frustrating since I can't reproduce it here. Jon Sonny Software

Re: attachement link lost / attachement not found

Since I can't reproduce this, I'm trying to get an idea of common themes. Is this the iOS iCloud folder? Or one you created yourself. And if you were to set the default folder to something on your HD, would the PDF be found there?

Re: Issue with Exporting Refs - Grayed Out

This was designed a long time ago and is based on the EndNote schema. I'm pretty busy right now and can't check, but how does EndNote output the XML?
