Re: Bookends won't scan Mellel document

I was rather hoping someone might've run up against the same problem. But clearly not.

Re: Bookends won't scan Mellel document

Obviously I've tried a reboot. No success. Trouble is I don't even know where to look for a solution.

Bookends won't scan Mellel document

Hi all, Of course this happens just before an important deadline... As I try to scan my Mellel document as I did so often before, Mellel duly switches to Bookends and then ... nothing. BE just sits there. Tried various settings, checked everything was in order, and yeah, it is. If need be I'll do it...

Re: Export to Citavi (with attachments)

At the moment I can't even persuade Zotero to import with attachments, and I've pretty much tried everything.

Re: Export to Citavi (with attachments)

Hi Jon,

Thanks for this. I've tried various ways of encoding and editing the resulting file so that it leads to the file path, but nothing with much success. I'm giving up on this one.

Export to Citavi (with attachments)

Hi all, As I now have to include Windows in my workflow, and Bookends isn't available, I'm trying to get everything exported to Citavi with the idea of repeating that periodically (I do all my "harvesting" using Bookends). The problem is getting the attachments to play ball. A RIS export does work, ...

Setting up a workflow between Bookends and Linux

Hi all, I wonder whether you could offer advice on how to set up a reference workflow between my Mac (at home and uni) and my Linux box at my other place of employment. As a decade-long Bookends user, I would much (much!) prefer to continue using it, but as there is no Linux version I'm struggling a...

Auto-shorten titles to short titles?

Hi all, I didn't find a recent thread on this, so I'm posting this as a new question. My publisher wants me to deliver my manuscript using Chicago 16th short titles. The problem is that I never entered short titles in Bookends and if at all possible, I'd like to avoid the chore of having to enter 50...

Re: Unscan problem in Word (after Mellel conversion)

Hi Jon, sorry 'bout that': Word 2016 / Bookends 12.8.4 (haven't updated yet). Hiding the field codes seems to make no difference, though.

Unscan problem in Word (after Mellel conversion)

Hi all, I think I've seen some problems that are similar to mine but in order to keep the discussion focused, please forgive me for starting a separate thread. Moreover, I am not certain whether the key to fixing my problem lies with Bookends, or Mellel, or Word. I decided to start here since this a...

Search ID#

Hi, Apologies if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it either in the manual or on the forum. Is it possible to find a reference by its ID# alone? When Mellel tells me it can't find a certain ref it mentions the ID# number and the author. However, since I work with a lot of newspaper art...

Re: Workflow logistics between Mac and Windows/Ubuntu

Thanks for that, Jon. I'm still hoping to acquire a Mac, but the chances are slim I'm afraid.

Workflow logistics between Mac and Windows/Ubuntu

Hi all, After having been a happy all-Mac user for some time, my new work laptop is probably going to be a Lenovo T460 for a number of reasons. Regarding my ref library, that is obviously going to create some issues. Now, I mostly write on my own laptop and that is going to continue, but it would be...

Re: Scanning problem with Scrivener > Bookends > Mellel combo

Ah, there is that. And of course, that solved the problem. For some reason it had totally bypassed me. RTFM, of course, but still grateful you helped out, Jon.
