Re: [Feature Request] Use floating citations in the Notes stream

Sorry, I don't know what you're after.

You can already select one or more notecards and right-click to do

Copy Notecard
Copy Citation
Copy Notecard and Citation
Copy Notecard as Hyptertext Link

Re: Searching for %tag in Notecards not working?

If you think you've found a bug you should contact tech support directly with your supporting information, not post on the forum.

Re: Multivolume Subsequent Citation (Chicago)

The User Guide (Help menu) has details about how Bookends deals with missing fields. Off the top of my head, you might try this with conditional grouping:

a, t, {v:p^p^}.

(this assumes that 36 comes from the Pages field)

Re: Hardware and handling very large databases

I'd probably bump the cache to 50 MB or so. Then quit and relaunch. Setting the best size is a matter of trial and error, so you might experiment a bit. I can't comment on the improvements a new Mac might bring, but if you're near an open Apple Store it's possible that they'd let you install Bookend...

Re: Tweaking import filter

It's possible that the source parser doesn't work with MARC records (which are treated differently from any other source). This code was written many years ago -- I tried it, and like you the tag wasn't imported.

Re: finding and detaching "localhost(null)"s?

Refs -> Global Change -> Remove Orphaned Attachments?

Try this on a COPY of your library to make sure it works as you want, it's not undoable.

Re: Tweaking import filter

There is an "n" in ANA, so the first line stops there.

I haven't tried it, but you might have to search for "$" 4 times, then "n", then parse.

Re: Making notes from highlight while in the Notes field moves focus to Notes stream

1. These sorts of small inconsistencies creep in as features are removed, added, and modified over the years. I agree with you, and in the next update both will put a return after the page number. 2. You can deal with this in many ways. For example, use Return + space for each separating line. Booke...

Re: Making notes from highlight while in the Notes field moves focus to Notes stream

Why do you need to see the Notes field? When you use the command to make a notecard from the selected text, the text is added to the Notes field for you? It seems to me you are taking extra steps. Just select the text and choose the menu option "Highlight Text And Make Bookends Notecard". Then all i...

Re: Making notes from highlight while in the Notes field moves focus to Notes stream

I understand. It's done on purpose, the notion being that if you make a notecard you want to work with it (e.g. edit it or otherwise manipulate it). I'm not sure if this is something I'd want to change (and it's not something I'd make a preference). Actually, the option to make a note card when the ...

Re: Making notes from highlight while in the Notes field moves focus to Notes stream

You mean it takes the focus from the PDF to the notes stream, right? You can't add to the notes stream from the Notes field.

Re: Subsequent Citation

First, don't put @ in the format. That belongs in the text.

Here are 2 citations that work for me when entered in the text:


First time {Alley, 2001, #83157@13}

and second time

{Alley, 2001, #83157@13}

Re: Show Attachment in Finder

There is no keyboard shortcut for this, but I don't know if you can make one with the help of a third party utility. Perhaps someone else does.
