Re: The background color

Read what. You can change the background color of the Summary view, you can't of the edit pane. But you can switch to Dark Mode, in which case you'll have white on black.

Re: Web of Science filter

I tried the WoS direct search from a location where there is ip authentication and it worked. Searching for "cancer" returned 3571061 hits. Importing worked as expected. So the issue isn't WoS itself or the filter. There must be some local issue (for example. a firewall, and Bookends isn't whitelist...

Re: Web of Science filter

I can check tomorrow. It's possible that WoS changed something, but it's also possible that either their direct access servers acting up. Let's see if anyone else reports this problem.

Re: Systematic review help

Use Refs -> Remove Duplicates. Bookends will allow you to set the stringency of duplicate detection, and after duplicates are found you can have Bookends remove them for you, or you can have Bookends show them to you so that you can manually verify, and even alter which, references are to be removed...

Re: Live Search — OR option?

You're asking for far more than an OR option, you're asking for a full blown search string parser that respects parentheses and hierarchical search grouping. Live Search ignores parentheses (and in fact all punctuation, unless you group the search terms in quote marks). It's a quick, lightweight, an...

Re: Live Search — OR option?

No need for SQL, the regular find window allows boolean searches (Command-F).

As for the Hits list, as you know it's transitory and not to be relied on for any extended use. Move the hits to a temporary static group and accumulate them there.

Re: Unable to import Book info

I just tried and it's working here. Have you modified the LOC filter by any chance?

Re: Chapter Abbreviations (etc.)

You know, I think I read the initial post too quickly and provided an unhelpful response, sorry. You used a ; in cited pages, which is not allowed if you're using ; as the citation separator. That's why you're getting unmatched citations. Either use some other punctuation instead, or change the cita...

Re: Open in Bookends using Share Menu?

We already have an Open In Bookends bookmarklet for use with browsers. I frankly don't know anything about allowing Bookends to accept shares from other apps. And of course Bookends wouldn't know what to do with a shared email or tweet. So it may fit your narrowly circumscribed use, but I don't thin...

Re: Open in Bookends using Share Menu?

There is no specific code in Bookends Mac to handle sharing. Not sure what Bookends would do with anything "shared" with it other than a PDF. And for that you can Print to PDF in any app and send the result to Bookends (Save PDF To Bookends), which will attach it.

Re: Questions concerning PDF Notes

1) To navigate in notes for longer texts I manually copy the titles and place a # before them to highlight them. This is, however, far from ideal and takes a lot of time. Did anyone find better solutions? Jon: Would it be possible somehow to integrate the Table of Contents in the PDF notes view? In...
