Migrating "Date added" field from Papers3 to Bookends?

Post by ivirshup » Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:39 am

Hi! I'm a new user, and am trying to migrate my papers3 library over to bookends. I've managed to get things mostly moved over using the script from here, but I'd like to also import the "Date Added" field from papers. Is this possible? I'd be willing to modify the script, but I'm not sure if the scripting interface gives access to that field.

Thanks for any help!

You have to contact the author of the script if you want it modified. He posts in the Bookends AppleScript forum (a better place for this post, too). However, in this case it would do no good if you want that to replace the value in Bookends. The Bookends Date Modified data is created by Bookends and is read-only.
