Re: How to add an original title to a reference?

Have you read the User Guide (Help menu)? Everything is explained there. If nothing else, take the video tutorial

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CowJRIu ... load_owner

Translated title is u11. So insert it in square brackets after the t.

It's unlikely, but I'll record the request.

Re: Searching for references without attachments

It's a canned smart SQL search. Just create a new smart (SQL) search and choose the option "No Attachments".

Re: How to add an annotation before a date?

The instructions I gave you were for in-text citations, not the bibliography. To generate this in the bibliography you'd have to edit the format to output literal text. Something like $Original work published in $a (d) t. The text in between the $ signs is output as entered. You'd have to create a n...

Re: How to add an annotation before a date?

It's entered in the temporary citation. Since you're using Mellel, double click on the citation object and enter the text as I showed (you won't see curly brackets in Mellel). Or you could use Copy Citation with Modifiers and let Bookends do this for you. Please refer to the user guide, Help menu, w...

Re: How to add an annotation before a date?

You can enter literal text before or after a citation by surrounding it with backslashes:

{\Original work published in \temp cite}

Re: BE freezes when retrieving PDFs

In theory there is no limit, which is why I can't think why this should happen. And it's tough to debug from a distance, especially since I don't have your 100's of PDFs. You should be able to force quit without damaging the library. Of course you have backups (Bookends creates them, and I hope you ...

Re: Replace citations of another reference manager (Zotero) in an already-written-word-doc

I really don't know much about Zotero's citations. But I just took a look and their temporary citations look like this (generated with Copy Citation in Zotero): (Umelo-Njaka, Nomellini, Yim, et al. 2001; Patterson 2001; Jacobs, Hung, and Shapiro 2001; Umelo-Njaka, Nomellini, Bingle, et al. 2001; Bru...

Re: Extra comma in subsequent citations with short title

For citations don't output the p- (unless that's what you want). To cite ad hoc pages, use Cited Pages

{temp cite@12-14}

Re: Extra comma in subsequent citations with short title

You tell Bookends what to output before and after the Cited Pages in the format. So edit the format and remove the ", " in the Before field.

Re: Attachment Disaster

Change the default attachment folder to something else. Then, add one attachment from the folder Other's Papers. Bookends will now treat Other's Papers as an ad hoc attachment folder. That means it can find PDFs stored there, but it will not *move* PDFs there. They will be moved to the default folde...

Re: Attachment Disaster

So you don't want Bookends to see the attachments in Other's Papers, is that right? If so, change the default attachment folder to what it whatever it was before (best if it is the factory default, but not necessary). If Bookends still sees attachments in the Other's Papers folder, click on the Mana...

Re: BE freezes when retrieving PDFs

Impossible to know what's going on when that happens. If you can isolate which reference is causing the problem and I can reproduce it it should be possible to track it down. Since your screen snap shows you're on the first reference, just try that alone. Then contact tech support (support@sonnysoft...
