Re: Book chapter: chapter title versus book title

1. Yes, found it 2. There are too many capitalized words for this to be feasible 3. good idea Can I make a request for a change to the Format Manager to allow separate control of the case of the Chapter Title and Book Title? The publisher I'm working with is a major international player. They use va...

Re: Book chapter: chapter title versus book title

Here's the problem. Consider this: Author, A. B. (2019). Chapter about the Efe in Zaire. In Editor, C. D., (Ed.), Book about the Aka in Africa. Cambridge University Press. If I global change the chapter title to Sentence Case, the 'E' and 'Z' will be lost. If I global change the book title to Title ...

Re: Book chapter: chapter title versus book title

So thinking this through (and reading from the User Guide, copied below)... I could Global Change the 'Title' field to Sentence Case. That would change the Chapter Title. And the 'Volume/Issue' field (in Global Change) would be the book title? I need to be sure that changes I make won't mess up my r...

Book chapter: chapter title versus book title

I am working with a publisher whose house style includes the following for a chapter in an edited book: the chapter title is in Sentence Case, while the book title is in Title Case. For example: Holodynski, M. (2009). Milestones and mechanisms of emotional development. In B. Röttger-Rössler & H. J. ...

Re: DOI field contains spaces

Doh!

Why didn't I think of that?

Replaced in 8202 references! Out of 16000. Wonder where they came from.

Thanks :)

DOI field contains spaces

I am experiencing a problem where the doi field is showing up in formatted references because in the library that field contains empty characters -- apparently three spaces. This is happening with both new and old references, ones with which there was no problem in the past. I enclose a screen shot:...

Re: replace any attachments already there....

And what would happen to the new PDF? It would also be attached? Or the old PDF would have the name of the new PDF, and the new PDF would be trashed?

replace any attachments already there....

"Fixed a bug when adding a PDF via the watch folder to an existing reference where it would replace any attachments already there."

Does this recent bug fix mean what I think it does: the files that were previously attached will be lost for ever? Or merely moved to the trash?

modified journal glossary

I have a modified journal glossary that Bookends seems to have lost because it doesn't have the .gloss extension. Can I just add the extension? It is in the Custom Journal Glossaries folder within the Bookends folder.

Re: Author search isn't

Exploring further: the search function starts working before Return is entered. On some occasions the behavior I describe above occurs. I've haven't yet figured out what those occasions are. But once Return is entered, the correct results appear in the main window.

Author search isn't

There are times, in BE 13.2.6 and at least the previous version, when although BE claims to be conducting a search on the Author field, it evidently isn't. I attach a screen shot. Notice "Search Authors" indicated below the search field. Notice the name typed into this field: "Furui." And notice tha...

Re: Remove a reference from a group without deleting reference?

I have the opposite request: when I'm working in a group I'd like to be able to delete a reference completely - from the library, not just from the group. This occurs when I come across a duplicate. Or if I'm in the Watch group and decide I want to remove a reference that I've recently added. The on...
