Re: BE Spotlight (Attachments) search hanging-freezing

It looks like the spotlight search is now indeed a "live" search since we implemented a macOS native toolbar. I'll see if anything can be done about that. As for the locked records, close and reopen the library window.

Re: Paperclip not opening attachment in preview

Bookends just tells the Finder to open the PDF in the default viewer. What happens after that is up to your OS.

Re: Single authors on top APA

AFAICT that happens normally when the bibliography is sorted by author. If it's not happening for you you can try to reindexing the library.

Re: Bookends Browser: high CPU usage, URL works smooth in Safari

FYI, I saw this fix posted on another site (same problem you mentioned, but involving Safari):

Signing off from iCloud
Rebooting (essential!)
Signing in into iCloud again

Re: Preserving PDF's xattr (extended file attributes) on import to Bookends -- to preserve Skim PDF annotations

There are no current plans to support Skim-specific annotations. These annotations are not stored in the PDF, but in the extended attributes of the file system (you know that, I'm mentioning this for anyone who reads this thread). https://sourceforge.net/p/skim-app/wiki/FAQ/#where-are-the-notes-and-...

Re: 1001 anonymous references

Bookends will find DOIs if they are in a URL AND if they terminate the URL. If they're in the middle Bookends won't find the correct one.

Have you tried Autofill From Internet on, say, 100 at a time?

Re: 1001 anonymous references

It is clunky, but feasible. Autocompete Paper (in Bookends) is designed for instances like this, but it's meant for a few PDFs, not thousands. You might ask why very few PDFs were not found. Do they have DOI's? If so, know that Crossref (which Bookends uses to fetch metadata based on DOIs) has been ...

Re: Bookends Browser: high CPU usage, URL works smooth in Safari

No, but the report in that thread affects many functions on the Mac. Moreover, many of our users use Catalina and I'm not getting other reports of this. If there is some bug in a macOS update then it will require a fix from Apple.

Re: Go from attachment to Bookends entry?

No, but your example above showed a slash, not a pipe. If the search works for you no need to change.

Re: Go from attachment to Bookends entry?

It's easy enough to search for attachment name in Bookends with SQL search. I wouldn't do a Regex search for all in one string, though, I'd do one at a time and AND them in the regex search. Also, use (?im) in the regex search to get case insensitive searches that work in fields with multiple lines....
