Re: Marooned Attachments Manager

You remove the unfindable PDF with the Detach menu item (either the PDF popup action button or a right click).

You also identify and/or remove all such orphaned attachments -- search the user guide (Help menu) for the term "orphaned".

Re: Marooned Attachments Manager

All Bookends knows is that the PDF in question isn't attached to a reference. Only you can determine if the file is a duplicate of another file that *is* attached to a reference. Bookends gives you the tools to identify and manipulate marooned references, what their significance is requires human ju...

Re: Marooned Attachments Manager

Marooned files are defined in the release notes and the user guide. Here are the release notes (see 13.5.3) https://www.sonnysoftware.com/updates/updatehistory.html 1. No doubt at some point a PDF was attached from that folder and added to the ad hoc attachment folder list. You can examine the list ...

Re: Journal article citation preview different from actual

The page range isn't showing in the format example, though. Is the reference you're citing set as a Journal Article (in it's Type pop-up menu)? Or something else?

Crash? Or error message (and app continues to run)? In either case, you can send the log or the stack trace to us @ support@sonysoftware.com

Re: keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste not working

Not that I'm aware of. You can Google for that. But unless you reassigned the keyboard shortcut in System Preferences (which you'd know) I can't think of what would prevent the keyboard shortcuts from working.

Re: keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste not working

Maybe some weird system issue. I'd reboot the Mac and see if that helps.

Re: keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste not working

I don't know what the problem is, but check in preferences and see if Command-V is set to Paste or Paste and Match Style.

Re: How to export correctly an entire bibtex file?

They look identical to me, except for the last line -- but Bookends does output the final } -- note the double }}

keywords = {réalisme; épistémologie}}

I imported it in BibDesk -> no problems.

Re: BE freezes when retrieving PDFs

This sort of thing is really difficult to track down. I'm wondering if PubMed is blocking you, thinking you're a robot. We have code that aims to prevent this by slowing down search requests. But it's possible that they use other metrics to prevent mass harvesting. I can take a look at the code agai...

Re: Best method to recognize new annotations from other apps?

PDFKit annotations are embedded in the PDFs, so it's not an issue of "sharing annotations". It's sharing the entire PDF. As Serge explained, it looks like DTTG isn't saving the PDF prior to sending it back to Bookends iOS. That's the request I hope you made to DT support -- save and then share. Jon ...
