Re: Citing literature in different languages

That's right. In the case of cited pages, however, there is an easy workaround. You can substitute any leading text for whatever is used in the format. For example, say the format is set up to use , p for cited pages, and you want the German equivalent. Instead of {temp cite@123} use {temp cite@\S. ...

And they paste into, say, TextEdit? If so, please send a TextEdit document with that link inserted.

Re: Sync v2 and Separate iCloud Accounts

You are correct, sync v2 requires that you use the iCloud account specified in System Preferences. So I wouldn't upgrade to Bookends 14 (yet). iOS has always used native CloudKit sync and nothing was changed when Bookends 14 for Mac was released. Finally, note that one reason we have adopted native ...

Re: Hypertext links not working in reference fields and notes

I'm not sure what you're trying, but I used Edit -> Copy Hypertext Link -> As Link and pasted into a field in the reference edit pane. It was pasted as a live link, and clicking it set the focus of the list to the correct reference. Paste And Match Style will not work. You can also hold down Option ...

Re: Cannot assign tags to PDF any longer

I can't replicate this problem in Big Sur. Maybe someone with Monterey installed can test it.

Re: Cited Pages --> "customize" p. to (german) S.

I assume you're using a custom format and have entered this in the order field

a, d,

Don't do that. Enter

a, d

and let Cite Pages create the punctuation and S. before the pages.

Re: Cited Pages --> "customize" p. to (german) S.

In the Format itself, Citation Options -> Common Settings -> Cited Pages

Enter S. in the "before" field.

Re: *SOLVED* Only brackets displayed, content (author and so on) is missing

I suspect you had a space in the secondary field, so Bookends was outputting the space the second time the reference was cited. If the secondary field is empty (no spaces, no nothing) Bookends will use the primary field to create the output. There's no need to duplicate it in the secondary field. Jo...

Re: using iCloud Drive for synching attachments

Yes, that's correct. Although Mac <-> sync doesn't require using that folder to hold the PDFs, that folder works perfectly well. So in a mixed environment (macOS and iOS), that's the folder to use.

Re: Nature, Vancouver Bibliography 'missing' references

No. I'm not aware of any journal that uses such a scheme, it really makes no sense. For footnotes, yes. For a bibliography, no.

Re: Nature, Vancouver Bibliography 'missing' references

That's how these journals cite. You can cite a reference multiple times in the text, but it will be represented only once in the bibliography (and that number will be used in the body each time you cite that reference). As for Cited Pages, that applies to the citation in the text, not the reference ...

Re: printing PDFs

This won't help with scripting, but note that in Bookends opening the PDFs in an external PDF reader is probably more easily done via the UI than a script -- select the references with PDFs you want to print and then press Shift-Command-O. All of the associated PDFs will be opened in your default PD...

Re: Why does "copy citation" result in copy+paste of citation?

Typically one sets the default word processor in preferences, and when it is running Copy Citation switches and pastes into it. If it's not running just the copy occurs. If this is confusing, think of it as copying the temp citation to the word processor document, which is what it is meant to convey...

Re: PDF preview of newly added items starts at the very end of the PDF?

Good work, Dellu, this finally identifies a problem I can reproduce.

It should be fixed in the next update.

Thanks.
