Problems with Edited Book

I set up an edited book format and have ran into a perplexing issue. The u3 field is set up as the Translator. But when I put that into the format I get the notes. I will attach a screen shot so you can see the problem. Perhaps someone can tell me what I am doing wrong? Thank you for your time. Book...

Re: Copy citation to Mellel 4

Alas, I am in the Beta program and they did not offer it to me when I reported the bug. However, no problems as you have quickly come out with a new Bookends that fixed that problem. Thanks for that!

Re: Unable to scan doc or use

Well, as I did what Jon recommended I realized he has had to tell me to do this once before. I do feel dumb. I always forget that Mellel has a very thick layer between the user and Bookends. I am not complaining about it, it is great, but is usually works so well that I tend to forget that it is the...

Re: Unable to scan doc or use

Excellent question. Did not know about that or if I ever did under the stress of the moment I forgot. I will look into that. Thank you! I will post back with results.

Unable to scan doc or use

I am having trouble scanning a document. This document is a little bit complicated in history so let me summarize it briefly. It is a chapter of my dissertation that I wrote in the old version of Pages (Pages 4.X). I'm not particularly happy with the new Pages for my dissertation, so I wanted to mov...

Using TextEdit

I do a lot of my writing using Dragon for Mac. The most recent update really impacted the way it interacts with Mellel. So I was trying to dictate my text into TextEdit and then paste it into Mellel. However, I could not get Bookends to execute a command Y with TextEdit, either using the keyboard or...

Re: Three authors in Chicago's 16th edition author date style

That is the style I am using. I am confused then about the fact that from the screen shot provided, I cannot get the et al to function as I the pages I cited would seem to indicate that it should. I am using Chicago 16B. Citation Options.tiff As I read the page numbers I mentioned in my original pos...

Three authors in Chicago's 16th edition author date style

As I read that style from the 16th edition on page 790 – 791 (chapter 15.9) up to three authors are to be listed in an in text citation. Et al does not come into play until you reach four or more authors. However, as I examine the basic author date citation options in the bibliography manager it app...

Re: Reprinted book

The format has to be configured to output the original publication field. You have to edit it. You should refer to the user guide (Help menu) on how formats work. And this video tutorial will get you started. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CowJRIualSQ&feature=em-upload_owner Jon Sonny Software Yea...

Reprinted book

I am slightly confused on this one. I have several books by an author which have been reprinted recently, but whose original publication date was say 1956. I have tried putting 1956 in the original publication field, but only the current date shows and nothing shows that it is a reprint. I have trie...

Re: Repairing the database

First, I am sorry if there was any attitude coming through the first post. It was very late when I put it up and I may have not phrased it the best. Now, my problem is that while I can see the library when I perform the Show Bookends folder in Finder, that does not help when I access File Library Ma...

Repairing the database

How does one repair the database when it is in the Library folder that Bookends cannot see even if you use TinkerTool to make the folder visible to the Finder?

Mellel, Bookends, and Scrivener

I have been trying to put together some of my dissertation in Scrivener and then move it to Mellel. I just finished a bunch and wanted to see what I had, so I copied it into Mellel via cut and paste. It recognized the footnotes just fine but does not see my temporary citations. They are untouched fr...
