Re: Suppreses ':' in Newspaper name

Please send an example reference to tech support (export it) and tell me which format I should use to see this.

Re: n-dash between page numbers

I believe for cited pages Bookends uses whatever you typed between the pages, @1-2 or @1–2 (the second is an en dash, although in this font it looks similar to the dash).

Re: add keyword to multiple references

Two ways off the top of my head:

1. Assuming they are already a keywords, Term List -> Keywords -> Drop on list with multiple references selected

2. Global Change -> Change Field.

Re: Watch folder duplicates

Yes, that will do this. The watch folder for a single user is a *temporary* folder meant to hold the PDF for a few seconds until its imported. It should never by synced. By syncing it you both imported the PDF to Bookends and had macOS move it to the cloud, from which Bookends downloaded it. Jon Son...

Re: Watch folder duplicates

What OS?

Try with a fresh new database. If it still happens, contact tech support.

Re: Watch folder duplicates

It should only import once. Did you configure this to copy the PDF or move it? I'd reboot the computer and try again.

Re: PC & Mac Workflow

I think that's reasonable. However, of the three I think Zotero is the best for easily getting the PDFs along with the metadata when you export/import to Bookends. Please see this page

Re: n-dash between page numbers

Yes. In the format, use en dash after the p instead of dash for page range: p–

Re: Import from G Scholar using BE Browser?

Followup -- this feature works in Online Search -> Bookends Browser. It does NOT work (by design) in the library window browser pane.

Re: Reference format not appearing as usable option

Bookends doesn't touch any files in the Custom Folders. Are you sure the extension .fmt is there but just hidden by the Finder? Do a Get Info of the file to see.

Re: Copy and Paste from Melle to Word

Both Mellel and Word format the citations when you do a scan.

If you want to move the scanned Mellel document to Word, export as RTF or .doc.

If you want to do the scan in Word, not Mellel, export without having done a scan and then do the scan in Word.

Re: Import from G Scholar using BE Browser?

The direct import from GS won't work if you're using EZProxy. I've fixed this and made a silent update today. Please download Bookends 13.3 again if you are using EZProxy.

Re: Alter citation format in Word document without rescanning?

You can do it manually in Word.

But you really shouldn't be modifying the bibliography post-scanning if you can help it. Modify the data in Bookends instead. I realize there may be cases, however, where this is unavoidable.

Re: Import from G Scholar using BE Browser?

So far there are only 2 reports of this problem, which I can't reproduce. Please try another Mac if you can as a diagnostic. You're also welcome to write to tech support if you want to try the beta of our next release, which will have an entirely new browser engine to see if that helps. Jon Sonny So...
