Clear live search field when changing groups?

The current behavior is that the text in the live search field isn't cleared until the user initiates it. So when you change groups the same live search is performed on its contents. A user has requested a change in this behavior. He would like the live search field to be cleared when a new group is...

Re: how to remove period at end of article title

You can't use RegEx for find/replace. But you can use Global Change -> Search and Replace, searching only the Title field for . (period) and replacing it with nothing. There may be the odd title you have that has a period in the middle somewhere, but they'd be rare. And in those few cases (if any) y...

Re: WiFi Sync isn't broken, but I am having "issues"

And the two iPads are on the same network? Can you try a different network (e.g. either at home or at your institution)? If it works for one and not the other in both cases, then I'm afraid we'll have to wait for Serge.

Re: WiFi Sync isn't broken, but I am having "issues"

Serge is away for a week, but I'll try to help. Wi-fi sync works with Mohave and the current version of iOS. Are you saying that when you get the 4 number code on the iPad the popup list at the lower left hand corner of the library window on the Mac doesn't appear? https://www.sonnysoftware.com/book...

The metadata being provided by Google Books. There is no PDF (at least not one Google Bookends points to), but there is a link to the cover art. If you don't want the cover art to be downloaded, open Online Search and select Google Books as the source. Then UNCHECK the Display image checkbox. Now th...

Re: how to remove period at end of article title

I'm guessing the title was entered in the database with a period at the end. Remove it and let the format deal with adding periods if you want to do that.

Re: Autopopulate file tags from keywords?

Bookends can't autoassign keywords to PDF tags, but maybe I can save you a few seconds of typing per tag. If you right click on the "enter tag" field a list of existing tags will popup. If the keyword has been assigned as a tag already, you can scroll to it by typing the first few letters and then a...

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...
