Hi Lars, You can import anything into Bookends that you can export from EndNote. This may mean tweaking the EndNote output style (Refer) to include the information you want (e.g. the record number) preceded by a tag. In your case, I imagine that the information is being output already (because you a...

Re: Wish list

I downloaded a trial version of Bookends today and it looks like a very capable replacement for EndNote, at one quarter the price for the competitive upgrade. It does, however, require an adjustment in thinking as the window containing a single reference is the default working window, unlike EndNot...

Hi everrett, Here are the comments we make about this in our "issues" page (http://www.sonnysoftware.com/issues.html): "Because of changes to the way fonts are handled in the ATSUI text engine in OS X, you cannot mix Roman and Symbol fonts in the same field (Symbol and Roman fonts have different tex...

Re: smart handling of fields

However, in the current (v7) user guide, the instructions and descriptions for these two elements follow the information for "Enclose citations with...", which is the last part of the Bib & Document Options Tab instructions. "Show Example..." and "When a Field is Empty" should precede the Bib & Doc...

To answer your last question first: in Bookends 8 field labels will change on a Type-by-Type basis. So while you have 19 fields (18 real ones plus one virtual field for issue), they can differ between reference Types. For example, as set up now (in beta), books use User2-4 for Edition, Translator, a...

Re: volume/issue

However, I guess I'm not exactly clear on what you mean by having virtual field for the issue, though. Is it because I can use the "i" field operator when outputting data, and because there are built-in functions that operate on the parentheses to parse the data automatically, even though it's stor...

Re: fields in Bookends 8

Is there any chance that volume and issue will be separate fields in Bookends v8? Most of my data sources have them as separate fields, and I would prefer to store them separately. Will there be any additional fields or additional user-defined fields in v8? There will be 4 user-defined fields in Bo...

Hi ydnar, I can't give you an exact date for the release of Bookends 8, because it depends upon some things that we don't control. But I can tell you it is coming along nicely. Anyone who buys Bookends 7 now will receive Bookends 8 without charge. But I *do* suggest that if there are make-or-break f...

Hi rhood, Saving internet searches is something we will almost certainly add to Bookends. Automatic searching is another feature we are interested in including. These are relatively high on our list of desirable features. I'm not sure what you mean about searching within a group of hits -- that woul...

Re: UTF-8 Support!

Bookends remains useless to me unless I can type in Chinese characters. How long until UTF-8 support can be expected? Bookends 8 will support UTF-8. No release date yet, but it is approaching. P.S. Bookends 7 supports Chinese just fine if you set a Chinese font as a default font in Preferences. You...

Re: exporting to iPod

Not sure how I missed that. Thanks a lot. Actually, though, it didn't work well for me, because I tend to put very lengthy notes in the notes and/or abstract fields. This meant that most of my references weren't imported at all. Hm, I haven't tried this in a while, but in my previous tests you coul...

Hi Marcus, I've seen this behavior occasionally myself -- pretty annoying. I have no idea what triggers it, but when it happens it seems to be field-specific. My best guess is that the OS becomes confused and thinks that the field's encoding is right-to-left, even though it is English (or Roman, at ...

Re: How to handle journal abbreviations

I've been considering a switch to Bookends, however I have been unable to find out how the program handles journal abbreviations. Do these have to be entered manually or is there a way to store an abbreviation along with the full name of the journal? Thanks. Hi kitesci, That's what the Journal Glos...
