Linking attachments by name

NCBI asks that their FTP Service be used when batch downloading manuscripts from Pubmed Central (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/tools/ftp/). I wrote a script downloads all the PDF files from Pubmed Central that match a given set of search terms from the FTP site and creates a medline-formatted fil...

Feature Request: Indesign endnote support

Hi Jon, After a recent update, Adobe InDesign now supports formatting bibliographies from in-text citations: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/endnotes.html Would it be possible to see if this makes it possible for Bookends to work more seamlessly with InDesign? I, along with several colleagues...

Biorxiv

Hi there,

Has anyone made an import filter for Biorxiv (http://biorxiv.org) that they would be willing to share?

Thanks!

12.5 manual scan fails

Hi Jon, This morning I went to scan a complex text document as I've done since ~2006. Unfortunately, there seems to be a bug in 12.5 that causes it to lock up without scanning references. I tried it on two different computers, I tried rebuilding my database, and I tried scanning a document that I kn...

12.5 undesirable behavior

Hi there, Since updating to 12.5, the focus sometimes moves from the search box to the authors box automatically. This makes it very easy to accidentally erase the authors from a reference. Not sure if this behavior existed pre-12.5, but it impacted me a few times today on two different machines. To...

Searching in BOT?

Hi there, I recently purchased Bookends on Tap. First off, congrats on making a program that sync's so robustly. Getting my library synchronized with my iPad was a breeze. Two small issues, though, that I'm hoping you can help me solve: 1) After transferring my library with 4,500 attachments, I was ...

Kindle DX Synchronization

Jon, I have a BE feature request. I purchased a Kindle DX, primarily so I can take lots of PDF manuscripts with me when I travel. Unfortunately, there is no good way to manage PDF content on the Kindle; the Kindle mounts as an external USB device and PDF files are loaded into the Kindle's /documents...

Thanks Jon. And yes, I do have a lab license :) Actually, what I want to do is have attachments libraries for certain bibliographies to be on other volumes, such that Library A has its attachments stored in Folder A on internal hard drive A, while Library B has its attachments stored in Folder B on ...

Feature request: Per bibliography attachments folder

Hi all, I have a feature request that I *think* would be broadly useful, but perhaps not. I maintain several Bookends libraries on different computers, including a 'lab master' library that contains all of the papers I've downloaded. I would like to be able to give new members of my lab a CD contain...

Hi Jon, Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure that your suggestion would be ideal since I already have 1000+ references in my database, with 200+ of those having linked PDFs. I guess that I could export, do some sort of text cleanup with regexps, and then reimport -- does Bookends simply use the • ch...

Keywords and server

Hi all, I am looking for a little bit of help with the Bookends server. What I am trying to do is make my paper library (search for references and access PDFs) accessible to members of my lab. I've gotten the Server to work and display search results in the right format, including the generation of ...
