Re: Floating citations multiple refs

Assuming you mean ordering of citations within a group...you have a space between the citations, so that are NOT grouped. Either remove the spaces, or enter them explicitly as in one group: {temp cite1; temp cite2, temp cite3} Alphabetize references is a separate setting that is NOT for rearranging ...

Re: New MacBook Pro and Scanning command missing

I don't know. Check to makes sure Bookends.dotm is checked in the Templates and Add-ins menu. You can see the add-ins and the files themselves in the Bookends Folder -> Scripts for MS Word and make sure they're in the right location.

Re: LOC failed to initialize search

I see that too, I expect there is some problem with the server Bookends is using. I'll take a look.

In the meantime, enable and use the filter "Library of Congress Z39.50.fltr". That's working.

Re: Any way to create smart group of items with no finder tags?

No. Is there a Spotlight search for PDFs without tags?

Re: Notestream buggy in latest release (13.2.7)?

Nothing has changed in this feature in the last release. If it's just one PDF then there's some problem with it. If it's all PDFs please contact tech support with a SIMPLE example and tell us how to reproduce it.

Re: Editing citations in MS Word

No need to convert to text, just edit the field in place. But there's a better option -- Bookends lets you do things like removing the author on an ad hoc basis with metacharacters. For instance, {-temp cite} would remove authors. Check out the user guide for how temporary citations work, and for a ...

Re: Book chapter: chapter title versus book title

1. You can do a Find by Type (Book Chapter) and do a Global Change on the hits. 2. There is a list of words maintained in Preferences whose case won't change when you apply a case (check to make sure it applies to Global Change, too, I can't check that myself at the moment). 3. Do this on a COPY of ...

Re: Book chapter: chapter title versus book title

No. It goes a bit against the philosophy of having text styling controlled by the format, but you can use Global Change to change the case of any field in batch. The in the format use "as entered" for case.

Re: [Feature Request] Full SQL Support

I'm reluctant to hand that kind of power over to people who may not know how to use it.

Note that you can use the free Valentina Studio app to work with Bookends databases. A full UI and all the power of Valentina.

Re: Apple Pages, full reference and original formats

1. I haven't tried Pages '09 in a long time -- have you tried Biblio -> Scan Open Apple Pages Document?

2. You can use Copy Formatted instead of Copy Citation.

3. Remove the edited versions from the Custom Formats folder (in the Bookends folder).

Re: Different et al. limits for authors and editors?

It works in my tests -- please contact tech support with screen snaps of the reference you're formatting so I can see the authors and editors field and the format you are using.

Re: Adding a large collection of PDF books

Why use the watch folder, which isn't intended for this sort of thing? Just drag and drop the PDFs on the library window and, in the attach dialog, uncheck the option to move/copy the PDF from where they are. Once you have them attached to empty references, use Autocomplete Paper with the ISBN (and ...

Re: DOI field contains spaces

Yes. But in the meantime, do a Global Change -> Find/Replace and tell Bookends to replace 3 spaces in the DOI field with nothing.

Re: [Feature Request] Separate Export and Biblio Output Formats

Although we may be able to make it a bit easier by having the Enable BibTex button set the output default to BibTeX.fmt with BibTeX Markup when enabled, and to Styled Text when not (can't change the format automatically because Bookends couldn't guess what you wanted.
