No, that's not an option. You can use View Formatted, however, to display any information about a selected reference (Ref with Abstract is a format we provide for this), so you can move down the list (using the down arrow, if you like) and quickly see which reference is the one you want.

Hi Danny,

Yes, the emdashes would replace the authors names only -- it would have no effect on punctuation preceding or following the names.

Thank you, Alexandria. Not only were your answers helpful, but the particular responses will make the coding easier! :-)

Yes, like Nature. Well, they would apply to the preceding reference in the bibliography. But upon reflection, this isn't important. It would be left up to the user to set or disable. One clarification (Alexandria) -- if the first reference was authored by Smith, and the second was edited by Smith (b...

Re: email import

Also, I found sending citations from WOS via email, copying them to clipboard and then importing them into BE has a bug. The Volume field says that it should format as "vol(issue)" but instead it is "issuevolume". (i.e. instead of "15(4)" it is "415". Anyone else seen this? It is a simple matter to...

Hi niklas, Actually, for technical reasons that would this a lot easier. So you are saying that if two references had Smith as the first author but the other authors were different, and the format called for et al. after the first author, this would be correct? -- 1. Smith, AB et al.,... 2. Smith, A...

Implementing dashes for repeated authors

Hi all, I'm looking into the possibility of having authors' names replaced with dashes (or whatever) in a bibliography when they are in sequential references. Since I don't use this style myself, I thought I'd sound out our users. My thinking goes like this. Dashes (this would be configurable) would...

Well, posting on a forum usually isn't the fastest way to get technical support. The problem you are having is a bug in Mac OS X Finder, in which it gets confused and doesn't match up Bookends with the creator metadata. It has nothing to do with either Word or Bookends. The Read Me discusses this, a...

I told you what to do -- make a temporary database. It is quick, stable, and convenient. There is no other solution. Double-clicking works because Bookends does some fancy footwork in the background to figure out the article's page. And before you ask, no, there are no plans to import it, because it...

Internet Search downloads everything . It displays the information you see in the list, but you can see everything by clicking on the item and looking in the lower, display pane. This will include abstract (for PubMed), the price and comments (for Amazon), and MARC records (for LOC and most librarie...

You can always make a database, call it "Temporary", and drag references from the Internet Search window that you think you might want there. You can then deal with them at your leisure and import the ones you want to your "Working" database when you have the time.

We don't cover this in the User Guide because it's not very user friendly, and not helpful for most users. But a journal glossary is just a tab-delimited text file. Every row should have 3 entries (ending with tab, tab, and return). If you have that, all you need do is set the Mac file type and crea...

I'm not sure we are getting anywhere here, Tom. The Internet Search window is evanescent. The only way to store the refs is to import them to a database. You can import them as hits if you want (check the box Import to Hits List). You can move them immediately to a temporary static group if you like...

The checkboxes are for indicating if a reference is in the Hits List or not. And by clicking on it you can make a reference a hit (if it is not) or remove it from the Hits List (if it is). See? Since most operations are performed on the hits (making a bib, sorting, exporting, etc.), this is very use...

Now it's me getting confused...in listview in BE you can check boxes, you make them hits and then you could e.g. 'add to new group' (rigth?)... That is not correct. When you "add to new group" Bookends adds the *selected* references (the ones that are highlighted). It does not care about the "hit s...
