Re: sign in to icloud - empty dialogue box

I'm not seeing any problem signing in. If you try again and see a problem write to tech support directly, this isn't a forum discussion issue.

Re: Copy from one database to another

The easiest way is drag and drop. But export/import works, too.

Re: Feature Request: Show Path to Attachment in Window

If you want to see the pathname, hover the cursor over the PDF image -- the full path name will appear.

There is already a Show In Finder command so you can go the file immediately and do what you want with it.

Re: Author search isn't

Reindex the library. If you find the search is still returning incorrect hits send the library to me and tell me exactly what to do to see this. If I can't reproduce it there's nothing I can do about it.

Re: How do I import a PDF attachment directly?

The attachment has already been "imported" and Bookends knows where it is, so as far as using it with Bookends there's no reason to move it to the default attachment folder. But if you want it there, use Global Change -> Consolidate Attachments. Or, since this is just one example, use Show in Finder...

Re: Indent on Chicago 16B

I can't reproduce a problem here, the hanging indent works fine. Please contact tech support directly with a screen snap of how your format is set up.

Re: How do I use the Search Panel logic more effectively?

I think you mean you'd put them in a folder and do an OR search.

Note that they don't need to be in the same folder. You can select both at once (with Command-click) and you'll get the boolean search you've selected.

Re: File renaming and tag search bugs -- the fix

This occurrence was prevented when using the built-in renaming methods but not a format. In the next update it won't happen when using a format to create the name either.

You can change that to OR by right-clicking on the group pane and specifying how you want multiple selections handled.

File renaming and tag search bugs -- the fix

In the initial release of 13.2.6 there was a bug that caused the extension of a file to be repeated after automatic renaming, e.g. my file.pdf.pdf This would cause Bookends to fail to find the attachment. There was also a bug where searching for a PDF tag would cause an error message when no match w...

Re: Bookends doesn't run in Catalina betas -- update

Spoke too soon. I am indeed seeing semi random crashes in Catalina with PDFKit functions. These are bugs in Catalina, not Bookends, so we'll just have to wait until release and see if they're fixed.

For now, stay away from Catalina betas if you use Bookends.
