Re: Questions concerning PDF Notes

1. You can select the text you want in the notecard and then -> Make Bookends Notecard From selection. You would still have to double click to open the note and add a # if you wanted that. 2. This is by design, the notion being that most people would want their commentary, not the descriptive title....

Re: Tag autocomplete

You mean PDF tags? If so, no, not autocomplete. But when you right click on the tag you'll be able to quickly select any tag in the Finder or those used specifically in the library.

Re: Bookends can't find attachments

Please contact tech support with a screen snap of your preferences first tab. As for the library, you're probably opening a different one from the one with 5000 references. If you can't find it for some reason, you can get it again from the cloud with File -> New LIbrary -> Download From Cloud. Jon ...

Re: [Feature Request] Helpful Features for BibTeX Users

You can't do anything about that, but perhaps I can deal with it in code. I'll take a look.

Re: Access Date → Month name

Bookends doesn't know what a date is (in the metadata, that is). It imports the text provided by the source. The only way to change it is manually, after import. You could do a global change, but with so many different date possibilities that's not realistic.

Jon, you may consider updating Appendix B of the Bookends manual, page 441. The screenshot for the BibTeX export shows the setting "Export as Styled Text" (this is what I did), but it should be "BibTeX Markup".
Good pickup. And the destination should be Disk. Done.

Exporting through AppleScript will not escape the characters (which is a pity).

If you look in the AppleScript dictionary you'll see the option to format references (for export or not) as BibTeX Markup.

Re: [Feature Request] Helpful Features for BibTeX Users

Actually, they are escaped properly in my tests. You have to set the output to BibTeX Markup (instead of the usual Styled Text).

Re: [Feature Request] Helpful Features for BibTeX Users

I think it's simple enough to press Command-A to select all references before you export. But I'll take a look at issue with & and %. Reserved characters escaping should occur with BibTeX enabled, regardless of whether you what accented characters escaped or not. Please let me know if you find other...

Re: Thank you for the improvements!

I'm glad you like the changes, I think they're an improvement, too (export references, in particular, was in need of an update).

In case you missed it, we also added the ability to swap field columns in the library window with a single right-click.
