Restore deleted style

Post by cinepou » Sat Oct 05, 2019 9:53 am

Hi,

Sorry if this has been asked before. I'm finishing a thesis and in a bit of a hurry...

I deleted a style from the formats manager (Turabian 7th edition), thinking this was the way to return the style to its default version (I think I read that somewhere sometime), but it appears it is simply gone: Silly me!

How do I get it back?

Thank you!

If you delete a custom format (which is distinguished in the list by being shown in bold), the factory default format will be used. If you delete the factory default, then, well, you no longer have the format.

You can always download formats from our anonymous ftp site:

Another trick I should have mentioned is that if you go to the Bookends file and trash

Installed Version.txt

the next time you launch Bookends it will replace all the default formats and import filters with the factory defaults. Custom formats and import filters are not touched.
