Feature request: Citation with link

Post by imam » Mon Apr 08, 2019 6:51 pm

Dear All,

I write in Scrivener and I have moved from Papers to Bookends recently. One feature that I am missing is the ability to copy Paper Link. This gives a unique link to the article in Papers. I've created a script in KeyboardMaestro so that whenever a citation is added to Scrivener it comes linked to the unique article in the library. This is extremely helpful while writing very long technical article where I lose track of which article is which.
The good news is that there is already a "Copy Hypertext link" in Bookends and I assume that creating a "copy citation link" is a straightforward task. Adding this to the floating citation would be wonderful.

Any thoughts?

Copy Hypertext Link sounds like what you're calling Copy Citation Link (that is, it links back to the reference in Bookends). And it's built into Floating Citations, too.

Have you tried it, and is it not what you're looking for?
