Importing formats

Post by mgymnop »

I apologize when this was asked already 100 times. I am new to Bookends; just switched from EN 20. I want to import the formats from the ftp server. There are two files. I downloaded them and unzipped them. Now I only have to move the formats folders to the corresponding in the hidden bookends folder? I assume the destination folder content will be replaced? Do both files on ftp server contain different formats or is one newer than the other?

There are many more than 2 files.

But you shouldn't be doing this at all. Trash whatever files/folders you downloaded from the ftp server.

Bookends installs all formats when it is first launched. The ftp server is only for those that may have trashed a format for some reason and want a replacement.

Open Biblio -> Format Manager and you'll see all formats. Check the ones you want access to within the app.
