While working wit bookends an error window opens telling me there is a NIL OBJECT ERROR. It appears in a very peculiar situation: After having copied a file from the internet search window in an open database, when I click on some other database window that is open, here comes the error message. The...

Drag and drop

The shortest way is clicking on the entry you want to export, dragging it to the window of the destination database and dropping it there. The program will tell you that you have added one entry to your data base, if you chose only one. Try choosing more than one, but not all. At least, I had troubl...

The Copy to Menu is the one doing strange things. Drag and dropping works correctly.

Sorry for being a pain in the ass

Transfering interneat serch results to an open database

All of a sudden, and when I have more than one database open, the results will be added to a different database than the one I selected. Has anybody had the same experience? What should I do? Thanks in advanc...

Au secours!

I am a stuborn scholar who does not surrender easily, but I must say I am at a loss. I have tried the different possibilities of importing from Endnote to Bookends, and the only one that works smoothly is saving my endnote libraries in that XML format and importing them to Bookends. I have not been ...

Misunderstanding

As I said, Jon, your kindness and compromise with the users of your program are one of the main reasons for me to change from that once almost perfect application that was Endnote. Before writing the previous post, I had gone through the different trends in which this cuestion call number was discus...

Call number: a basic Field for Lesson

I suppose I am not the only one who combines the use of bibliography for research and teaching. In both fields, call numbers are basic. I have been using Endnote for almost ten years now, and have collected way of 20K references with their call numbers. I can not change everyone of them when transfe...
