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?

Re: Citing literature in different languages

That's right. In the case of cited pages, however, there is an easy workaround. You can substitute any leading text for whatever is used in the format. For example, say the format is set up to use , p for cited pages, and you want the German equivalent. Instead of {temp cite@123} use {temp cite@\S. ...

And they paste into, say, TextEdit? If so, please send a TextEdit document with that link inserted.

Re: Sync v2 and Separate iCloud Accounts

You are correct, sync v2 requires that you use the iCloud account specified in System Preferences. So I wouldn't upgrade to Bookends 14 (yet). iOS has always used native CloudKit sync and nothing was changed when Bookends 14 for Mac was released. Finally, note that one reason we have adopted native ...

Re: Hypertext links not working in reference fields and notes

I'm not sure what you're trying, but I used Edit -> Copy Hypertext Link -> As Link and pasted into a field in the reference edit pane. It was pasted as a live link, and clicking it set the focus of the list to the correct reference. Paste And Match Style will not work. You can also hold down Option ...

Re: Cannot assign tags to PDF any longer

I can't replicate this problem in Big Sur. Maybe someone with Monterey installed can test it.
