Re: Bookends keeps attaching new PDF to existing reference

The solution isn't to add more complexity but to figure out the problem. 1. If you add the same PDF repeatedly, is it consistently attached to the wrong reference. 2. If you avoid the watch folder and use the normal mechanism for adding PDFs (drag and drop) does the same problem happen. BTW, you rea...

Re: Quickest route from Delicious Library 3 to Bookends ?

That's great. Would you please post the script in our AppleScript forum? Others who might find it useful would probably look for it there, not in the (much busier) general forum.

Re: Quickest route from Delicious Library 3 to Bookends ?

Yeah, they really dumbed it down. I'm afraid I don't see any easy route from DL3 -> Bookends.

If you happen to own Bookpedia, it seems it can import DL3 XML

which you can then export as BibTeX or Endnote.

Re: Citing literature in different languages

For editors the only solution I can think of is using a field to store the value you want.

In this case, you'd put the various possibilities in a field (e.g. User1) and in the format use that:

{user1 e}

And in the user1 field enter

ed
hrsg
etc.

You get the idea.

Re: Bookends keeps attaching new PDF to existing reference

Please contact tech support at support@sonnysoftware.com

And send ONE example PDF and the attach dialog you see when you drop it on a library window.

Re: Nature, Vancouver Bibliography 'missing' references

In the citation (in the body of the text) you can provide pages numbers in several ways. If you want to use numbered citations, the simplest way is to use quoted text

{temp cite\, p. 13\}

which might be changed after a scan to

(1, p. 13)

Re: Bookends keeps attaching new PDF to existing reference

Please try my advice to Joao above:

I have two suggestions:

1. Try with a fresh new library.

If you can reproduce this with a new library, then

2. Download the Bookends 14 demo and try it with that new library (not your existing library).

Re: Hypertext links not working in reference fields and notes

Use the Edit menu for Paste -- the default keyboard shortcut for Command-V is set to Paste and Match Style (but you can change that in preferences).

Re: Bookends keeps attaching new PDF to existing reference

You didn't say if you did a Rebuild or not. The option to create a new reference instead of adding to the existing one was added in Bookends 14. I have two suggestions: 1. Try with a fresh new library. If you can reproduce this with a new library, then 2. Download the Bookends 14 demo and try it wit...

Re: Scan a document popup when inserting citation

I can't reproduce your behavior when Live Bibliography is enabled, either. Let's see if anyone else on this forum or Eyal at Mellel can do so.

Re: Scan a document popup when inserting citation

I can't reproduce it (Bookends 14, Mellel 5.0.8). You should ask on the Mellel forum, too.

Re: Bookends keeps attaching new PDF to existing reference

Then something must have changed on your system. Have you tried Rebuilding the library?
