Re: File renaming and tag search bugs -- the fix

Thanks. For renaming, I use {author last name}- {Title} One issue I have now is that many titles end with a period. Thus I end up with Doe- My file..pdf Not a big deal, but is there any way to suppress the period in the title? I notice that Bookends suppresses double periods for citations (I think),...

Re: Secure Input blocks function of TypeIt4Me

Thanks.
Interesting. When I log in to the proxy server in Safari, Secure Input is not invoked.
So, it seems, the solution for me is to use Safari along with Bookends, rather than the Bookends browser....

Secure Input blocks function of TypeIt4Me

When using the Bookends browser, I frequently have to log in to my University's proxy function. That works fine, but then I get a message from TypeIt4Me (a text expander that I find useful) that "Bookends has enabled Secure Input. This prevents TypeIt4Me from expanding abbreviations" I understand an...

Hi, I use Launchbar and would also be very grateful if you could post the script so I could modify it for Launchbar.
It looks great!

references not autofilling imported PDFs

Since the latest update (I think) Bookends has stopped being able to import reference data for PDFs dropped onto it, despite finding a DOI. This is true for multiple journals. Does anyone know a way to figure out what is going on? thanks

Re: Frequent need to rebuild the database . . .

Yes, I always did a rebuild, but a few days later, it would again detect problems.
I will do a repair and see if that fixes it.

thanks

Frequent need to rebuild the database . . .

I recently have been finding that I am frequently prompted by the app on opening to rebuild the database (due to found "problems")

A defragment and compact did not stop this.

Any advice out there?

thanks

Fill in PubMed central ID not working for me

when I select a reference, right-click, and select PubMed . . . Fill in PubMed Central ID, I get "Get PMCIDs" progress window, one of my two cores gets pegged at 100% by Bookends, Bookends responds sluggishly, and I have to force quit it. If I try to click "stop" in that progress window, nothing hap...

Failed link in Bookends browser

Loving 11.2, but one problem. When I use the built in browser (accessed via the "Web" button between the Formatted and PDF buttons) I see the reference in pubmed and a link my institution's InfoLink. I then click on the InfoLink icon and get a new InfoLink page with the appropriate links to full tex...

BE not replacing temp citations in Pages table . .

I have a Pages 09 document with a table which contains text and a reference. I then scan the doc. All of the references in the body of the text are included in the bibliography just fine, and the temp citation is resolved. However, the temporary citation in the table is left alone. I did a test and ...
