We recommend syncing through a third database, BTW. That is, you sunc your work db to a db on a server, and then sync your home db with the db on that server. This isn't necessary, but works particularly well. Interesting - I read through the use scenarios in the guide for more info, and I'm starti...

Yes, to be explicit, I had no problem typing characters into any search box in Bookends.

My experience is that the title bar's search is not finding the same results as the Refs > Find function. Here's my experience (Bookends 10.1, Leopard): I have many entries with the word "hygiene" in Chinese and Japanese characters (respectively, the 2-character phrase in these languages is "weishen...

According to a thread I was told about on the Sente forum, the SRU gateway hasn't functioned for some months. Perhaps the contact info link above would provide a direct answer about linking into JSTOR. But having to jump through the hoops of institutional subscriptions I bet it would really be hard.

This would be really useful to me too.

I know JSTOR has opened its search results to google, so perhaps it there is an API afterall.

Take a look at JSTOR's description of its XML gateway and their contact information.

Luhmann - just wondering: what fields from Amazon would be necessary to import for your citations to movies?

Definitely. That was one of my post 9.2 requests.

joewiz, I'm not up on the tech side of these things, so I think you know more about it than I do. But can I ask, why would it be a step-by-step process? I can see the Amazon part possibly, but for Google books you can specify in the Advanced search the title, author, ISBN, etc. Would it not be just...

I agree that this is a great idea, but the implementation could be extremely difficult, particularly within Bookends, and it may be better suited to a separate application. If Jon doesn't go for it, you might shop the idea with other developers. The program could take exported files from Bookends, E...

Re: BE erases Chinese characters (QIM input methodology)

I have files that are primarily in English but have some Chinese characters in them. When I "scan document" with BE, some (around one third to one half) of these Chinese characters disappear; they are replaced by an underscore (_), and I have to go through and retype them. I'm using Word 2004 and Q...

I still think being able to customize the formatting link would be cool though. Others may just want a little more info (like author and date) as well. Could it even be based on a format maybe? While I'm really sensitive to the need to prevent feature bloat and menus spawning out of control, I like...

"Copy URL" could be a bit confusing, since refs have a URL field, and since the Bookends server also involves making 'hypertext links' to Bookends references. I think, were this feature to be implemented as a menu item, it would be more accurately called "Copy Local Link to Reference". It would have...
