Re: How to change default behaviors in auto complete window?

You mean Autocomplete Paper. 1. The results are returned in the order provided by whatever order the online source you are using provides them. 2. That shouldn't be hard. 3. I have no issue with the order. But having the default change to Import isn't a bad idea. 4. The title is in fact kept, and if...

Re: Autofill City based on Publisher?

No. The best I can think of (and it's not great) is to tell Bookends to use a Term List for the Location field. Then you can use the Term List or just type a few characters and Bookends will autocomplete it for you.

Re: Citation Delimiters are redundant

FYI, you can always insert without delimiters from Bookends if you hold the Shift key down. For example, Shift-Command-Y.

Re: Bring the DOI to the main section

As iandol pointed out, they are mutually exclusive. Either you have logical groups whose locations are fixed (e.g. all unique identifier fields belong in one collapsible group), or you have co-equal groups whose locations you can change (swap title with URL, for example, as you can now within a tab)...

Re: Citation Delimiters are redundant

Please contact tech support directly with a screen snap of what was removed. I've looked through a number of older versions of Bookends and don't see the option of None for the delimiters (sorry, but I don't particularly remember this).

Re: How to find attachments with annotations and review annotations?

1. Notecards are text-only, and show annotations of the types that Bookends can create. So in addition to highlights and notes, it will show underlined text. Although it's possible that we'll add more in the future, the focus for the note stream is on annotations that make sense in that context. Boo...

Follow the instructions for setting up iOS cloud sync, which are in the link that I posted above.

Re: PDF preview of newly added items starts at the very end of the PDF?

No, Bookends actively defaults to the top of the PDF. I've had occaisional reports of this over the years, but I've never been able to reproduce it. Please try another Mac, if you can, as a diagnostic.

Re: using iCloud Drive for synching attachments

No, you can't use the iCloud Folder for iOS Sync between Macs -- as I said that folder is created by iOS). It's easy enough to switch attachment folders in the future if you need to.

Re: using iCloud Drive for synching attachments

Yes, you'd select Other and then your folder in the iCloud Drive (which you can indeed use with Cloud Sync). Note that if you use Bookends for iOS those PDFs won't be synced with your iOs devices. We could offer iCloud Drive as a dedicated option in that popup, but I think that would be very confusi...

Re: How to find attachments with annotations and review annotations?

I'm not sure what labels you're referring to, maybe color labels? I'm speaking of PDF tags, which can be quite powerful and have the advantage that the values you set belong to the PDF itself and can be used by the Finder and other apps that understand PDF tags. If you're assigning a one star rating...

Re: Hashtag as first line in notes is converted to a header

That would break many existing notescards. Have you tried putting a space in front of the hashtag?

Re: How to find attachments with annotations and review annotations?

1. I'm not sure what you mean by assemble, but if you mean some sort of automatic mechanism to find PDFs that have annotations and display them, there is none. Addendum: I doubt this is what you want, but it may be of some help. You can tag PDFs and search in Bookends for those tags. So, for example...
