Topic: Remove duplicates from bibliography (aka Citations List)

Hi Adelheid, If you use custom citation formats and "Ibid.", Bookends will create a new citation every time. But we made a change in 7.7.5 that (I think) changed the behavior with regard to making duplicates in bibliographies. But the problem here isn't anything to do with Bookends' logic. As I unde...

Probably not. If you don't need ISBN numbers for web citations (and you shouldn't), then this field can be used for retreived date for web citations.

Rick, These are all good ideas. A few have been implemented already. For example, there is a tutorial that comes with Bookends, which should provide enough to get the novice up and running. The Read Me also is a mini-FAQ (but far from complete). I have thought of providing a stand-alone FAQ, which I...

Re: User1 and Key field clash ?

I have BibTex enabled and have discovered recently what a wonderful thing that is. But I'm wondering what to do about web references in formats such as APA 5th, which use user1 for the date of retrieval. If I generate BibTex keys from the Refs menu, will this delete the retrieval information alread...

Hi Madwen, Bookends doesn't use a real date field because many (most?) folks import reference information, and there is just not enough consistency to allow for unambiguous resolutions of dates (it's a mess). If you don't care about sorting by date, just enter the date as you like. If you want to so...

Use the menu option Edit -> Paste Without Styles (AKA Option-Command-V) I tried this, but couldn't get it to work as I imagine it should. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Rick Hi Rick, All I can imagine is that perhaps the style of the 0'th character in the Title field you pasted into was set to bol...

Hey thanks for responding, Jon. I use mostly CMS and that is what provoked my question since a CMS newspaper cite would read "author, title, paper, date, sec. X, pp 1-2" as opposed to the APA "X1-2". In your case I think either User1/User2 or Volume would make sense. You'd just have to edit the for...

Hi Madwen, I am editing a previous post I made, now that I've done a bit of research. According to the APA Newspaper Article format, the section belongs with the page. I copied this information and example for an unsigned newspaper article from this web site: http://www.miracosta.edu/home/jmegill/Sa...

There are many new features we are working on. This is not at the top of our list, but it is something we would like to have at some point. It would be helpful if folks who would use "German sorting" explained exactly what they want in detail. For example: 1. Should there be a user-defined list of w...

Rick, Bookends can output the data in almost any form you would care to imagine. In this case, you are using the Printout format, if I'm not mistaken. Instead, use the BibTeX format to output the references. Make sure BibTeX is enabled in the Format Window, and select it from the popup menu when you...

Ah, I see. That's because the format we provide just outputs the volume field, without distinguishing between the volume and the issue. If you want their styles to be different, you must edit the format to something like this: a. (d). t. f, v (i), p-. *and* turn OFF "include issue number with volume...

I'd be interested to hear what was the outcome here. Was the problem resolved? Yes, it was. The problem was that the import filter was set to use "any valid tag" as the end-of-field delimiter and, mistakenly, it also indicated that the keywords were separated by carriage returns, when in fact semic...

Hi Rick, You can use either form (i.e. one with a space between the volume and the issue or not). Bookends will delete the space after the volume number if you choose to output it alone. Note that if a format tells Bookends to include the issue number with the volume, it will output exactly what you...
