Re: Old libraries auto populate when opening

That should be the clue, no? It's not "autopopulating", it's syncing. I suggest you temporarily turn off wifi, open the backup and disable syncing for it (use the cloud popup menu). Then re-enable wifi.

Re: importing book cover images

Send a single reference exported from Bookpedia (in EndNote export form) and a .jpg cover art file to tech support. I'll see if I can coerce the imported to accept it to attachments.

Re: Feature Suggestion - Automated Notecards

That's the kind of highly targeted and potentially confusing feature I try to avoid.

Note that you can add all the highlights in the PDF to the database (in Notes, showing as notecards), by selecting them and then doing a right-click menu selection.

Re: Automatic merging of journals short and full names

On import, no. In the formatted reference, as in a bibliography, yes. In the format, j = abbreviated name f = full name each version must exist in the glossary, of course, for this to work. You can also do this in the library itself with a Global Change. But I recommend just letting Bookends do this...

Re: Subtitles replaced in Autofill from Internet

No, not in batch. That's only for the regular autofill.

Re: Subtitles replaced in Autofill from Internet

If whatever Bookends finds online is different from what is in your library Bookends will replace it. You can't exclude fields from autofill, it's all or now. You can autofill a specific field with a right-click, however. So if you want to autofill, say, the date, just right click on that field. The...

Re: White text on white background in keywords field

I'd rather prevent it from happening. If you can reproduce this, please contact tech support at support@sonnysoftware.com with the steps we need to take to see it happen (screen snaps are often helpful).

Re: White text on white background in keywords field

The only way to do it for a single field is per record, not globally.

Re: notecards, note stream, disappearing quotation marks

I can't reproduce this. Bug reports should be made to support@sonnysoftware.com.

The setting for note card font size is in the General tab in preferences.

Re: Formats FTP login

Thanks, I've contacted my ISP.

You can simply remove the corrupted format from the Custom Formats folder and when you run Bookends it will use the factory default.

Re: Biblio Formats Missing

Remove the file Installed Version.txt from the Bookends Folder. The next time you run Bookends all default files should be reinstalled (custom folders won't be touched).

Re: Duplicate entries and missing refs when importing from watch folder

That indicates that there was probably something wrong with the library (always think of that first when something that was working all of a sudden misbehaves). I'd do a Repair on the library now, too. If the problem comes back please contact tech support with the steps to reproduce. It has to be re...
