Re: How to change the unique ID of a reference?

You might not be seeing it if the edit pane isn't wide enough. It needs to be about twice as wide as the dropdown menu control for choosing reference type on the top right. If not, drag the pane, and then the unique ID will magically appear when it reaches the correct width.

Re: Import dialog for .enw files

Good idea - would reduce 'friction' of integrating with Bookends slightly, but significantly. Thinking back, I'm sure I've never changed the settings in that dialogue.

Re: Book chapter: chapter title versus book title

I'm glad that this has been asked for. This is the one feature that I often find myself wishing Bookends had. (There were others, but they've all been added over the years.)

Received - many thanks, Jon!

About to travel for few days. I will deal with this with Jon by email and post back here when there's any useful news.

Re: Has Quick Add via JSTOR stopped working?

Two more things: 1) The references aren't totally blank: after attaching the pdf they have just the JSTOR URL in the URL field. All other fields are empty. 2) I've just now Verified, Reindexed and Repaired the database, and tried again to attach a JSTOR pdf, with the same result: a reference blank e...

Re: Has Quick Add via JSTOR stopped working?

But anyway, it doesn't seem to be anything specific about those papers. I've just tried a different random paper from JStor with the same -null- result. I can send you that one too, of course, if it would help.

Re: Has Quick Add via JSTOR stopped working?

Perhaps related – I'm getting blank references today when I attach JStor pdfs (by downloading in Safari, then dragging them into Bookends) e.g. this one: https://www.jstor.org/stable/2156021 And the same with the one in the previous post in this thread, which I just tested. I haven't changed anythin...

Re: What should a double click do?

Here's one vote at least for leaving it as it currently is. I keep the edit pane open, but double-clicking the reference is still useful because it sets the edit pane back to the 'Main' tab if it was on 'Additional fields', 'Notes' or 'Attachments' (as Jon pointed out to me in these forums a couple ...

Re: Suggestion - Title case for titles of edited books

Thanks Jon! The bit about the comma is what I was missing. For the benefit of anyone else who needs to do this: assuming that both chapter title and book title are in the reference in Bookends in sentence case, then to get what I wanted, you set the format for book chapter with Case of Title as 'Tit...

Suggestion - Title case for titles of edited books

In the bibliography output for book chapters, it would be useful to be able to impose title case on the titles of edited books without also imposing it on the title of the book chapter. Plenty of journals want the titles of edited books in title case and the titles of the chapters in sentence case.

Re: Confused about iCloud sync

If using both is going to do harm, wouldn't it be a good idea to pop up a warning if the path to the database includes 'Dropbox' and they try to turn on iCloud sync?
