Re: To endnote and back again . . .

No, because that would have meant that I am intelligent. I am not! Sorry to have missed that, since I think I went through something similar when I came to Mellel from Scrivener. Thanks for the quick reply!

Re: To endnote and back again . . .

Hit a roadblock. It turned out that the simplest thing to do was to open the document in word for Mac and re-enter the citations from bookends that way. I did that. I then import of the document into Mellel 4. However, I now have a new problem. I cannot get this document to scan. The citations were ...

Typo

I was going through the user guide to find something and I noticed this: "simply add it to the text in from of the temporary citation". I think that was supposed to be "in front of". This is from p. 242 in the User Guide.

Re: To endnote and back again . . .

I am not seeing a way to export the DB as a whole, am I missing something? Or am I right in thinking that I need to do a search or something analogous to that and then export the "hits"?

Re: To endnote and back again . . .

It just occurred to me, can one do this in reverse? Export from Bookends and put into an empty Endnote DB? Or does that not work? Any ideas?

Re: To endnote and back again . . .

Well, to be fair Word can get it if I write a macro. The problem stems from the fact that Word uses the same style for both the number in the text and the number in the note. So if you want the note number to be non-superscripted you have to change the number in the note manually, or with a macro. I...

Re: To endnote and back again . . .

That looks promising! I will try ASAP and report back. Once I get the citations in word to match bookends then I can easily import into Mellel, or at least that seems right. Thank you!

So as I'm working on revisions I've been dictating them in Word for windows using Dragon for windows and Endnote. However,I really do not want to do the final version In word on either platform....

Re: Export to Endnote

I solved this right before I was told by my better half that it was time for bed. I exported to the Bookends folder within the Library. That went well, then dragged the export folder to Documents and was fine from there. As I closed everything down at the end, I found a Bitdefender screen at the bac...

Re: Export to Endnote

Here is the XML file. It will not let me attach the file. I tried the drag and drop method. It gave me an error. I will attach a screenshot of the error.

Export to Endnote

I need to export to Endnote for a project that involves windows. I did the Export (hits) and told it to do the attachments. But the folder where I told it to send the files shows nothing but zero byte files. I have tried pointing Endnote to the XML file, but that did not work (it also showed zero by...

Thank you. Doubt that a one line doc will show the problem. Cheers!

Bib Anomaly in Mellel 4

I'm formatting a bibliography for an essay I am doing for the confirmation class I teach, and I ran into something a bit unusual and I don't know how to fix it. My bibliography has four books with Bart Ehrman as either the author or the editor. He is the author in three and the editor in one. The co...
