Subtitles replaced in Autofill from Internet

Post by MattHedstrom »

I am a new Bookends user -- loving it so far. But I have encountered a problem. When I use "Autofill from Internet" with books, it removes the subtitle. Or more accurately, I suppose, it replaces the data in the title field, which includes "title: subtitle", with just "title."

Any known solutions or suggestions?

If whatever Bookends finds online is different from what is in your library Bookends will replace it. You can't exclude fields from autofill, it's all or now. You can autofill a specific field with a right-click, however. So if you want to autofill, say, the date, just right click on that field. Then don't autofill the rest of the reference.

One more related question: is it possible to Autofill selected fields only, as you have described above, but for multiple books at once?

And what I suppose is a feature request is the possibility to autofill Call Numbers.

Thank you!

No, not in batch. That's only for the regular autofill.
