Bookends with MS Powerpoint

Post by larilela »

Is it possible to use BE with Powerpoint ? When working in Powerpoint a double-click on ctrl (my floating citations trigger key) will open the search window of my BE library, but hitting enter will not insert the citation into the presentation, nor will a drag and drop. Copying the citation and pasting it will work, but there also seems to be no plug in for scanning the document to produce a bibliography at the end. Or am I missing something ? Would you suggest doing that in Word and copying/pasting into PPT?

Bookends won't do much of anything with Powerpoint, which is basically a graphics app. Yes, work with Word (or any other word processor, like Mellel, NWP, etc.) and, if you want to create slides of the results, move them into Powerpoint.
