Re: Smart Groups and Folders

If I understand it correctly selecting a smart folder will automatically select all its subfolders and groups (smart or not) and apply AND/OR logic to the selection. May I suggest adding a NOT operator (eventually effective only when selecting a single folder) that will display the references belong...

How to organize references

Hi all, I am trying to figure out how to best organize my references in Bookends. I have used Sente before and I always kept my references in a tree-hierarchy of QuickTags pretty much like using folders in Finder.

Organize attachments folder

Hi, My workflow: I use a 13" e-ink eReader to read my pdfs and I want them organized in the same folders as in my Bookends library. I don't want to do this manually. What the script does: The shell script monitors the attachment folder and it's subfolders for new files or renamed files. If such a fi...

Re: Hierarchical organization of keywords

Hi Jon, thanks for the advice, I wasn't aware that I could use tag cloud this way. However there are two limitations in that approach: 1. You are limited to two hierarchical levels 2. What is more important, you don't have the visual schema of the hierarchy. I will try to make the last point clearer...

Hierarchical organization of keywords

Hi, I routinely assign keywords to articles downloaded in order to have an overview. I have noticed that after a while the list of keywords can get pretty messy. Wouldn't it be a good idea to enable a hierarchical organization of the keywords as used in the MeSH terms? For example assigning the keyw...
