Version History

Bookends 14.1.6

January 7, 2023

  • Introducing deep PDF links

    • You can create a hypertext link to any PDF text or annotation and insert in into 3rd party applications like Scrivener, DEVONthink, and Obsidian, or into Bookends reference fields themselves (e.g. Notes). Deep links to selected text are created in the annotation popover window (Copy Link). You can create links to annotations in two ways: (1) right click on the annotation, select Copy Link from the contextual menu, and paste it into a compatible app, or (2) Command-drag the annotation to a window in a compatible app. Annotation links work with Highlight, Underline, Note, and Comment annotations created in Bookends or any other PDFKit-compliant application. If the corresponding Bookends library is open when the link is clicked, you will be taken to the reference/PDF and the linked text or annotation selected. In the copy or drag Bookends will also include a markdown link in the form [descriptive text](link). This allows you to use links with apps such as Obsidian and Bear, which do not recognize native links. You can rename the PDF without breaking the link. However, if you move a linked PDF Note or Comment on the page Bookends won't be able to locate it. In this case Bookends will still open the PDF of the linked reference and take you to the correct page, it just won't select the annotation. Note that to paste a live link into a reference field, it must support styled text and you must perform a plain Paste, not Paste And Match Style. If you set Command-V to use Paste And Match Style in Preferences, paste the link with Edit -> Paste or the keyboard shortcut Shift-Option-Command-V.

  • Compatible with macOS Ventura 13.2 (a)

  • Clicking on an underline annotation will select the corresponding notecard if the note stream is open and the option to show PDF annotations is active

  • Swap two PDF tabs by holding down the Command key and dragging and dropping one tab onto the other.

  • Added the option to remove duplicates from selected references (Refs -> Remove Duplicates). Previously Bookends would only search the entire library for duplicates.

  • The Preferences list containing field labels (Refs tab) has a new column that displays the default (original) values

    • This is useful if you have renamed and/or rearranged labels and need to know what metadata is intended for the corresponding field. You can reset a label to its default with a right-click, or edit it manually.

  • Updated import of nonstandard EndNote XML files exported from Mendeley.

  • Bug fixes

    • References in the Trash will not be used when creating or syncing a linked BibTeX file.

    • Fixed a bug where the first column in the reference list couldn't be sorted by clicking on the header.

    • Fixed a bug where the middle pane's width couldn't be changed in widescreen view.

    • Fixed a bug where the library window panes sometimes didn't update when a reference was selected.

    • Fixed several bugs in how the edit pane Notes field is displayed when switching between Light and Dark Mode.

    • Fixed a bug where edits made in an edit field would be lost if you immediately right-click on the field and choose Change Case.

    • Fixed a bug where Bookends didn't properly account for references in the Trash, resulting in a spurious warning that some references didn't have citekeys when creating a synced BibTeX file.

    • Fixed a bug where opening a PDF in LiquidText would also launch Highlights.

    • Fixed a bug where a short title created with a right-click on the title field could be shown in gray.

    • Fixed a bug where trying to remove a reference from a group could fail when the browser pane was open.

    • Fixed a bug in Compare References where the text could turn blue after saving changes.

Bookends 14.1.5

December 3, 2022

  • Improvements in library window reference list sort behavior

    • The sort column and direction (ascending vs. descending) is saved independently for each library when it is closed and restored when it is opened. Previously, when a library was opened an ascending sort was performed on the first column.

  • Add and/or remove reference list columns in the UI

    • Right-clicking on a list column header brings up a contextual menu that lists all of the possible options (e.g. Authors, Title, Added, Attachments, etc.) that can be displayed, with those currently showing being checked. Select a checked value to remove it from display, select an unchecked value to add it as a column immediately preceding the header that was clicked on. The minimum number of columns is 3, the maximum is 10. The options to add or remove columns still exist in Preference, this new feature is a convenient shortcut.

  • Scroll PDF tabs horizontally

    • When there are too many tabs to view all at once, place the mouse pointer over the PDF toolbar or the "no attachment" image, if showing, and swipe left or right to scroll horizontally. This works with track pads and the Apple Magic Mouse.

  • When a PDF tab is selected using a right-click contextual menu the PDF tabs will scroll, if necessary, so that it is visible.

  • PDF highlight and underline page numbers are now shown in the note stream.

  • The PDF Action pop-up option Show Annotation Modification Date in Notecards now applies to highlights and underlines

    • Previously it applied only to notes. Be aware that modification date for some annotations is not available in older versions of macOS.

  • Sort notecards by page number

    • Right-click on the note stream to open contextual that lets you sort notecards from the Notes field (not PDF annotations, which are already sorted by page number) if they have a page number indicated by "@". Notecards without page numbers will be left in their original position. This contextual menu option will appear if the note stream contains two or more notecards created from Notes.

  • Removed Copy As Hypertext Link from the note stream contextual menu

    • This option was misleading because it copied a link to the reference, not to selected the notecard. There is already an option to copy the link to the reference in the Edit menu.

  • Quickly navigate between pages you've viewed in Bookends Browser

    • Click and hold or right-click on the forward/back navigation buttons to open a contextual menu that will let you quickly go to web pages visited in the current session.

  • Improved detection of DOIs in PDFs from PNAS

  • Updated how automatic PDF downloads from eLife are handled to deal with changes made by the publisher

  • When formatting, the BibTeX Markup setting will only be applied if the format name contains the word BibTeX

    • If it does not, the reference will be output as styled text. This means you can switch between conventional formats and BibTeX.fmt without having to explicitly adjust the output style.

  • BibTeX keys are now referred to as Citekeys throughout the UI

  • When formatting with BibTeX Markup, superscripts will be indicated by \textsuperscript{}

  • When you right-click on the note stream and Copy Notecard and Citation, any headers, page numbers, and tags will be removed

  • Added LiquidText as an optional PDF reader

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed a cosmetic bug in the widescreen view when changing the groups pane width while the formatted reference was being displayed.

    • Fixed a bug where an error could occur when switching between the library window and a standalone reference window when the Formats Manager was open.

    • Updated Copy Citation from the floating citation window to work with Scapple.

    • Fixed a bug where PDFs automatically fetched from PubMed Central were downloaded twice.

    • Fixed a bug in the note stream where moving a PDF annotation notecard into the list of database field notecards could cause notecards to merge.

    • BibTeX bracketing of acronyms will no longer bracket runs of capital letters that occur inside a string.

    • Fixed a bug where having a space in the PMID field could cause an error when using it to search for the PDF.

Bookends 14.1.4

November 5, 2022

  • Minor adjustments for macOS macOS 16 Ventura

  • Automatic downloading works with many more PDFs

    • If you attempt to download a PDF whose URL can't be resolved or is behind an unaccessible paywall to a reference that has a DOI, Bookends will query Unpaywall (https://unpaywall.org) to obtain it from a repository on which it has been legally uploaded. You can learn more about Unpaywall, which keeps track of repositories containing millions of articles from thousands of publishers, in their FAQ: https://unpaywall.org/faq.

  • Added more publications as targets for automatic PDF downloading

  • If an online search finds references you already have (e.g. they are highlighted in yellow), right-click to select and display them in your library window

  • When importing a duplicate reference when attaching a PDF, Bookends will offer to show you the existing copy even when it's in the trash

  • The online search display of references will use the list text font and size selected in preferences

  • Copy live hypertext links to folders in the groups pane

  • Send formatted references to the bibliography window

  • The pop-up menu listing attachments will be enabled even if there is only one

    • Previously it would be disabled and you couldn't see the entire name if it exceeded the width of the menu.

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed an error that occurred when using the PDF action pop-up in a standalone editing window.

    • Fixed an error that occurred with the Summary view.

    • Fixed a bug that prevented hanging indents from showing in the bibliography window.

    • Fixed a bug where the right reference might not be selected when using a right-click -> Show This Reference In Library in the Online Search window.

    • The Summary pane updates immediately when its font size is changed in preferences.

    • Fixed a cosmetic bug where attachment names shown in the reference list weren't immediately updated when renamed.

    • Fixed a problem in the registration code window where the dates weren't parsed as intended for some non-English System languages.

    • Fixed a bug where the year was incorrect in exported XML when the Date field contained styled text.

    • Fixed a bug in Get DOI where the search failed when the title or journal name contained characters that should be escaped.

    • Fixed a bug where the setting to not include the PDF pathname with extracted annotations was ignored.

    • Fixed a bug where showing edit pane hints was turn on by default when a new library was made.

Bookends 14.1.3

October 8, 2022

  • Much improved extraction of PDF annotations

    • The ability of Bookends to extract and export PDF annotations has been rewritten from the ground up, and is now reference- rather than PDF-centric. This means that the annotations "know" which reference the PDF is attached to. Now each annotation block, which contains the annotations from all PDFs attached to a reference, is headed by information about the reference. This information is created using the default format (Biblio -> Default Format) and style (e.g., Styled Text, Plain Text, BibTeX Markup, etc.). This means you can include any information the formatter can access, including the unique ID, linked references, etc. Extracted highlights can be shown in the same color as in the PDF (light mode only). Annotations are output to a new Annotation Window, which gives you instant access to your annotations while working in Bookends itself. Search the contents of the annotation window using Command-F. You can copy and paste the contents into other applications, or save the contents to disk using File -> Save PDF Annotations.

  • Improved file downloading in Bookends Browser

    • Bookends Browser now works for download links for many file types, not just PDFs. It's intelligent, meaning that Bookends will offer to attach downloaded PDFs and Word files (as well as some other document types), whereas .zip files will be directly downloaded to your Downloads folder. How files are handled depends upon the MIME type assigned by the server. Requires macOS Big Sur 11.3 or later.

  • Text styles are now included when you drag notecards to another app with the Option key held down

  • Color label pop-up menus now show the color along with the assigned text

  • More graceful handling of the Inspector if the user-selected format for the display of references is deleted

  • HTML markup for text styles will be removed from PubMed abstracts, if present

  • Changes to the content obtained when you copy or drag a notecard

    • When you drag a notecard with the Option key held down or copy it to the clipboard, all text and formatting cues (e.g. # for header, @ for page, etc.) will included. This makes it possible to manipulate the header, tags, quotes, etc. with a macro or script in the receiving app. Any styles you may have applied will be preserved. To be compatible with markdown, when Bookends adds a # to a new notecard to indicate the line is a header it will be followed by a space.

  • Minor cosmetic enhancement to the standalone Term List window

  • The pop-up menu listing attachments will be enabled even if there is only one

    • Previously it would be disabled and you couldn't see the entire name if it exceeded the width of the menu.

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed an error that occurred when using the PDF action pop-up in a standalone editing window.

    • Fixed an error that occurred with the Summary view.

    • Fixed a bug that prevented hanging indents from showing in the bibliography window.

    • Fixed a bug where the right reference might not be selected when using a right-click -> Show This Reference In Library in the Online Search window.

    • The Summary pane updates immediately when its font size is changed in preferences.

    • Fixed a cosmetic bug where attachment names shown in the reference list weren't immediately updated when renamed.

    • Fixed a problem in the registration code window where the dates weren't parsed as intended for some non-English System languages.

    • Fixed a bug where the year was incorrect in exported XML when the Date field contained styled text.

    • Fixed a bug in Get DOI where the search failed when the title or journal name contained characters that should be escaped.

    • Fixed a bug where the setting to not include the PDF pathname with annotations was ignored.

Bookends 14.1.2

September 3, 2022

  • Print PDFs

    • The PDF Action pop-up menu has the option to print the PDF you are viewing.

  • Copy/paste multiple smart groups at once

  • Improved display of exported PDF annotations

  • When a reference is moved to the trash, the preceding reference will be selected

    • Previously the list scrolled to the top and first reference was selected.

  • Better handling of corrupted PDFs

    • If you try to attach a PDF that cannot be read, Bookends will alert you and offer to move it to the Finder trash, show it in the Finder, or simply continue without attaching.

  • Right-click on the Abstract field to create a new notecard from the selected text

  • Set the defaults for viewing PDF highlights in the note stream when in the edit pane attachments tab

    • Previously they could only be set from the dedicated PDF display pane.

  • When a file is added via the watch folder, Bookends will only add the comment that the metadata wasn't found online if it is a PDF

  • If identical authors in sequential bibliography references are to be replaced with dashes, edited book editors will be considered to be authors

  • The JAMA format has been renamed AMA (American Medical Association)

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed a bug in Remove Duplicates.

    • Fixed a bug in scanning using metatypes.

    • Fixed a bug that prevented Bookends from launching on some Macs where the system language is set to Japanese.

    • Fixed an error caused by clicking on white space in the note stream with the Option and Command keys pressed.

    • Fixed a bug in the Summary view where a background color at the beginning of the text (caused by a live search match) would bleed through when clicking on a field to edit it.

    • Fixed an error that would occur when editing in the Summary view.

Bookends 14.1.1

August 6, 2022

  • Refreshed Bookends app icon

  • New Trash group

    • When you delete a reference it is placed in the trash rather than being deleted from the database. If you drag a reference to the trash or press Command-Delete you will bypass the warning message. You can restore references from the trash or permanently delete them from the library. References in the trash can still be used, with a few exceptions: Live Search will find references in the trash only when the trash group is selected and scanning won't find matches with references in the trash. In addition, you can't extend group selections that include the trash, meaning that it can't participate in virtual groups. If you're syncing with Bookends for iOS, trash will sync automatically for cloud sync, but Wi-Fi sync requires version 3.7.6 or later.

  • Formatted reference examples include secondary citations

    • Custom citation formats can output different results depending on whether the reference is cited for the first time or a subsequent time. For such formats, the examples in the Format Manager and in the library window formatted reference pane include the first (1°) and secondary (2°) forms. If the format has no entry for subsequent citations, these will be identical.

  • Use Copy Formatted for citations

    • Previously Copy Formatted only allowed you to copy the formatted bibliography output.

  • Perform smart change text case operations in the edit pane

    • Right-click on a field in the edit pane and select Change Case. The options are Sentence case, Title case, Uppercase, and Lowercase. Unlike the now-removed Transformations menu options, these operations leave any text styles intact and honor the words entered in preferences that are to be excepted (e.g., articles and proper nouns). This is identical to the Global Change-> Change Case function but much more convenient if you simply want to change one or a few references.

  • Use Delete (the key or the menu options) to move references in smart groups or the Recently Viewed group to the trash

  • Improved display of the groups you have created

  • Improved automatic detection and correction of some database problems

  • If a library is stored on a service like Dropbox, iCloud Drive, etc. you will receive a warning notification when it is opened

    • Databases are prone to corruption when entire files are synced. If you receive this warning, move the library file out of file sync folder and use Bookends cloud sync instead. It is much faster, more robust, and can serve as a backup mechanism if the library file itself becomes damaged.

  • The option to exclude leading parts of authors names when sorting will honor smart apostrophes, for example d’

  • Improved compatibility with PopClip

    • The PDF annotation popover window should remain open when PopClip is active.

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed a problem that prevented the color pickers in preferences from working.

    • Fixed a bug where renaming corrupted a smart group.

    • Fixed a bug where a new reference wasn't automatically added to the selected static group.

    • Fixed a bug where the standalone edit window didn't update its contents when another reference was opened for editing.

    • Fixed a bug where the standalone edit window title was incorrect when first opened.

    • Fixed a bug where the wrong reference could be shown in the edit pane when the library was opened or a group changed.

    • Fixed a bug that prevented some information found with an online search from being imported.

    • Fixed an error caused by editing the "Replace repeated authors with" in a format.

    • Fixed a bug where compound words in the author sort ignore list weren't used.

    • Fixed a bug where new annotations weren't extracted unless the PDF had been saved.

    • Fixed a bug where the subfolder selection pop-up menu wasn't updated immediately after creating a new subfolder.

    • Fixed a problem where a terminal period before Cited Pages wasn't removed if it was followed by a Return.

    • Fixed a bug where a right-click on a keyword tag incorrectly offered to add it to the stop list.

    • Fixed a problem with Mellel verification of citations containing both literal text and a metacharacter.

Bookends 14.1

July 2, 2022

  • Completed a multi-year effort to refactor and modernize large amounts of the code base

  • New UI for searching Notes

    • When the edit pane Notes tab is showing, use Refs -> Find -> In Notes (Command-F) to bring up a search bar with an option to replace text as well.

  • Search Semantic Scholar

    • Semantic Scholar is a research discovery resource that covers over 200 million papers in all fields of science. Its strength is that it uses a variety of AI-driven tools to return highly relevant results. Its limitations are that it doesn't allow boolean searches, doesn't search behind paywalls, and doesn't return volume or page numbers. It does, however, provide abstracts and information about the number of citations a paper has received.

  • Smart SQL groups can be duplicated

    • Available with a right-click on the group or a click on the Action pop-up menu.

  • Click and hold or right-click on the Bookends icon in the dock to select from a list of recently opened libraries

    • Bookends must be running at the time.

  • Import filter tags can contain commas

    • Commas are used to separate multiple tags that map to the same field. Previously, you therefore couldn't import metadata whose tag contained commas. Now you can do that by escaping the comma in the import filter like this: \, . Thus, the tag "Abstract, Summary" in the text could be imported with this import filter tag: "Abstract\, Summary" (without the quote marks). Fixed an error in logic in the restore default font and styles function.

  • Most contextual menu options in the Attachment Inspector will operate on multiple attachments at once

    • The exception is Rename Attachment, which works with the first selected attachment.

  • Added more group pane Action pop-up menu options

  • Improved instructions for file sharing in the dialog the participant sees when accepting a share invitation

  • Improvements in the Autocomplete Paper dialog UI

  • Updated the notification subsystem to work more reliably with macOS 12 Monterey and later

  • In the Online Search window, changing the site to search clears the results of a previous search

  • Removed Substitutions and Transformations from the Edit menu

  • Global Change -> Restore Default Font and Style is much faster

  • The process by which Bookends determines if a reference field contains styled text has been improved

  • Hypertext links to other apps invoked with a right-click now work in all user-defined fields

    • Previously they only worked in fields up to User4.

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed a bug in the ! formatting directive that outputs the library name.

    • Fixed a bug where the field in which a notecard was being edited remained visible after the right pane was closed.

    • Fixed a bug in Autofill From Internet where some DOIs weren't found on PubMed.

    • Fixed a bug where the Notes field hint text itself could be saved to the database.

    • Fixed a bug in the Online Search recent searches pop-up menu.

    • Fixed a bug in the where the edit pane wasn't updated correctly when references were imported.

    • Fixed a bug where the edit pane fields weren't resized properly when the library was opened.

    • Fixed a bug in which the a reference field text style could become "stuck" when switching between references.

Bookends 14.0.9

June 4, 2022

  • Color labels for groups and folders

    • Groups and folders can be assigned a color defined in Preferences (Lists tab). Select a group color from a right-click contextual menu, the action pop-up menu beneath the groups pane, or the keyboard shortcut Control-Command-# (the number of the color is defined in the preferences Lists tab). You can only assign colors to groups and folders you create; the color of default groups (All, Hits, Attachments, and Recently Viewed) can't be modified .

  • Ignore citation delimiter metacharacter

    • When the open citation delimiter, typically a curly bracket, is immediately followed by a tilde (~), Bookends will ignore it during a scan. This is useful if you need to use the citation delimiter in another context, such as a mathematical formula, and don't want Bookends to mistakenly think it is the beginning of a temporary citation. When ready to submit the manuscript, do a search/replace in your word processor and replace the open delimiter plus ~ with the open delimiter (for example, replace {~ with { ).

  • Perform a live search for a unique ID by preceding it with the # character (e.g. #43237)

    • You can already select Unique ID as a field to search in using the live search field pop-up menu; this is another way to do so that is arguably more convenient.

  • The library name output by the formatter will no longer include the file extension, .bdb

  • A colon will be used in place of an underscore before the unique ID when generating a citekey as Author + Year + UniqueID

  • If a file in the destination folder has the same name as an exported attachment, Bookends will move it to the Trash and then proceed with the export

  • Small UI tweaks

    • Updated Help menu wording. The right-click contextual menu for references in static group reads "Remove From Group" instead of "Delete". Improved display of edit pane when no reference is selected.

  • The note steam will scroll to a newly-imported notecard

  • Added a warning that importing from Papers 3 can't be done when running a macOS version later than Big Sur 11.2

  • Bookends will import issue numbers exported from Mendeley as EndNote XML.

  • Right-clicking on empty space in the groups pane will bring up the contextual menu

    • Previously you had to right-click on a group.

  • Bug fixes

    • Dumb quote marks won't be escaped when BibTeX Markup is used for formatting references.

    • Fixed a bug where a right click on empty space in the reference list caused an error warning. Unicode characters in the WiFi sync list are now rendered correctly.

    • Fixed a bug where the BibTeX "don't change case" status wasn't correctly shown when preferences was opened. Fixed several bugs in generating citekeys.

    • Fixed a bug that prevented smart SQL groups with predefined content from being created.

    • Fixed a bug in the format window where changing the Type in one tab didn't update the field names pop-up menu in the other.

    • Fixed problems with the display of scrollbars in the library window right pane.

    • Fixed a bug on library open where the various panes weren't updated to reflect the first selected reference's content.

    • You can once again change the color of text in the edit pane.

    • Fixed a problem where searching for some DOIs failed to find the reference or generated an error.

    • Fixed a bug where the wrong reference was shown in the edit pane.

    • Fixed a bug where the Notes tab could contain light gray hint text. The PDF tag enter field expands if necessary to accommodate pasted text.

    • Fixed a bug where the reference list would become invisible when invoking full screen while the library was in the widescreen view.

    • Fixed a bug where searches for PDF tags could incorrectly match a PDF with a similar name.

    • Fixed a bug where the issue number wasn't imported if it was identical to the volume number.

    • Fixed a reference duplication bug where the new reference was selected but edits were recorded in the original.

Bookends 14.0.8

May 7, 2022

  • Changes in importing data from JSTOR

    • Changes in importing data from JSTOR. JSTOR has made substantial changes that require modifications in how their data are accessed. First, note that if you should log into JSTOR, even into a free account you create, because you may then have access to more references. Second, if you then accept the terms and conditions in your profile, the Accept Terms and Conditions pop-up won't appear each time you download PDFs in a session. Third, access to some references requires IP authentication. Therefore the results are often better if you are using Bookends on your institution's network or via a VPN connection. Bookends will no longer offer to attempt to automatically download JSTOR PDFs. Downloading JSTOR PDFs can still be done, however. If you are using direct JSTOR search, select the reference you want to import and then open Bookends Browser in the bottom pane. Click the Download PDF button (if offered), agree to the Terms and Conditions if necessary, and download the PDF. Import the metadata and PDF using the import pop-up menu at the bottom of the window. If you search with the full screen Bookends Browser and see the down arrow at the top right, click it and import the metadata as usual. Then click the JSTOR Download PDF button in the web page (if offered), agree to the Terms and Conditions if necessary, and download the PDF to Bookends Browser. Once downloaded, either drag and drop the PDF proxy icon onto the Bookends library window, or right-click on the PDF proxy icon and choose among the options. Because of restrictions enforced by JSTOR, Bookends direct search is more likely to be able to download metadata from JSTOR than the Bookends Browser search.

  • BibTex: improved protection of capitalized words in title

    • When you are outputting text as BibTeX Markup, Bookends will compare each title word to the list of words whose case is not to be changed (Scan & Bib preferences). If there is a match, and the word begins with a capital letter, Bookends will output it surrounded by curly brackets (e.g. {Paris} or {United States}). This option can be enabled in preferences, BibTeX tab: Bracket "don't change case" words in title.

  • BibTeX: customize citekeys

    • In BibTeX preferences tab, you can configure Bookends to create the following citekeys: Author + Year, Author + Year + UniqueID, Author + Year + Partial Title (first 5 meaningful characters), and Author + Year + Library Name. The second and fourth options ensure that the citekey is unique among all of your libraries.

  • Output linked reference information using a format

    • To access linked reference information independently of the Inspector, use the % character in a format. Bookends will output the unique id and reference relationship for each linked reference. If there is more than one, they will be separated with semicolons. This could be useful, for example, if you want to obtain linked references using AppleScript. The % character was previously used to output the absolute reference position in the database, which is now obsolete.

  • Bookends will recognize Markdown URLs in notecards

    • Select the notecard and right-click, then select the URL from the contextual menu to open it in your browser. If the URL begins with www, https:// will automatically be added.

  • A right-click now selects the format or import filter in the Formats Manager and Import Filter Manager, respectively

    • The option to show the import filter in the Finder now only works for items in the Custom Import Filters folder.

  • Updated right-click behavior in the references, groups, and term lists

    • A right-click now selects the row and immediately brings up the contextual menu. Previously you had to left-click to change the selection and then right-click to activate the contextual menu.

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: an error when scanning with an Author-Date format or when adding Types to a format.

    • Fixed: the formatting function replaced repeated authors with an en-dash or em-dash failed.

    • Fixed: when in dark mode, some PDF tags in the summary view were displayed in black (i.e. invisible).

    • Fixed: the reference selected in the library window could change when switching to another app or the Finder while in the process of creating a new reference.

    • Fixed: selecting nothing from the contextual menu in the groups pane could cause it to resize.

    • Fixed: the same ad hoc attachment folder could be added multiple times.

    • Fixed: eliminated some unnecessary UI updating when syncing references after the library window is deactivated.

    • Fixed: Proofreading Word documents, which was broken in the last update, works again.

    • Fixed: group names changed via AppleScript weren't saved.

    • Fixed: group names changed via AppleScript weren't saved.

    • Fixed: scanning a document containing only citations that were excluded from the bibliography would generate an error.

Bookends 14.0.7

April 9, 2022

  • Type pop-up menus no longer display Unused Types

    • When the name of an Unused Type is changed in preferences it will appear in Type pop-up menus. If the name is changed back to name beginning with Unused it will no longer be shown. The exception is that if a reference was assigned a Type that was later changed back to Unused, that Unused Type will be shown when that reference is selected.

  • The punctuation settings for Cited Pages are now Type-specific

    • That means that what is output before and/or after cited pages in the final citation can be different for different reference Types.

  • Show all references in the library window when filtering by Term List

    • IWhen filtering the library with Term Lists instead of groups, right-click and select "Deselect All Unpinned Terms" to have Bookends show all references. This is useful if you want to add Terms like Keywords to your references by drag and drop on the Term List.

  • Add Terms to references by dropping them on the Term List

    • When showing a Term List in the left pane you can drop one or more references on an item in the list and it will be added to all of the references. This is especially useful as a quick way to add keywords. If a reference already contains the keyword, it won't be added again. Note that you must right-click and "Deselect All Unpinned Terms" so that the list shows all references, not just those that already contain the term.

  • Add keywords to references via a contextual menu

    • Right-clicking on the keywords field will bring up an Add Keyword option that lists all of the keywords in the library. As with all pop-up menus, typing will take you to the closest corresponding item in the list. Bookends will add the chosen to all of the selected references. If a selected reference already has tha keyword, it will not be added again.

  • The selection in a PDF will remain when the annotation popover window closes

    • This means that utilities that cause the popover to close, like PopClip, can be used with Bookends.

  • Added a keyboard shortcut for Edit -> Copy Hypertext Link -> Copy As Link

    • Shift-Option-Command-L.

  • Fields in the edit pane accept dropped text

  • Enhanced readability of the PubMed automated search results

  • Type and labels cannot be set to empty in preferences

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: a rare bug in BibTeX file sync where in certain conditions the contents of the file could be deleted.

    • Fixed: a bug where the name of the selected Type above the preferences label list wasn't immediately updated after it was edited.

    • Fixed: right-clicking on an edit field when the library has no references no longer shows a hierarchical menu.

    • Fixed: a bug where under certain conditions the Type in the popup menu didn't match the data for that Type when the Format Manager was opened.

    • Fixed: the progress window will now be shown when exporting the selected references using a bibliography format.

    • Fixed: a bug that caused edit field hints to be drawn when changing Types even if they were turned off in preferences.

    • Fixed: a rare problem where an error message was displayed when the library window was closed.

Bookends 14.0.6

March 11, 2022

  • Improved JSTOR imports

    • When using a JSTOR URL to identify the reference to import, Bookends will use the JSTOR APIs to obtain higher quality information. This requires that you have access privileges to JSTOR, and does not work with JSTOR Research Reports (a limitation enforced by JSTOR). A byproduct of this is that Bookends will use the JSTOR.fltr settings to import JSTOR data when it is obtained via the JSTOR URL. If you've modified JSTOR.fltr you should remove it from the Custom Import Filters folder and use the new default filter provided by Bookends.

  • Improved edit pane display

    • Changes in label placement and spacing allow more text to be shown in each field.

  • Showing edit field hint text is optional

    • A setting in preferences, Refs tab, lets you show or hide hints in edit fields.

  • Added more escaped BibTeX characters to the Unicode conversion table

  • Bookends will now import text in cases where the tag and the textual content are separated by a tab

  • When doing a live search for words surrounded in quote marks, the matching phrase in the Summary view will be highlighted in yellow

    • Previously each word in the phrase would be highlighted even if they weren't found together.

  • When importing from bioRxiv in Bookends Browser, Bookends will put 'biorXiv' in the Journal field

    • Something similar will happen when importing from medRxiv, which had been broken by changes made on their server.

  • Attach a picture in the clipboard

    • Use the Refs menu or right-click in the reference list and select Attach -> Picture In Clipboard.

  • When fetching Google Books cover art, Bookends will change the URL provided by Google to use "https"

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: the Notes tab will once again have an asterisk if the Notes field has content and you are not showing it on the Main edit pane tab.

    • Fixed: a cosmetic issue in the edit pane where the hint color would be incorrectly applied to metadata.

    • Fixed: a bug where the PDF annotation popover didn't close when it should.

    • Fixed: a bug where double clicking on white space in the note stream would cause an error

    • Fixed: a bug where the hyphen-containing citekey in two references weren't identified as duplicates.

    • Fixed: a rare problem with importing references Sente.

    • Fixed: a bug where downloading the same reference with cover art from Google Books caused a hang.

    • Fixed: a bug where the edit field hints reflected those of the last-viewed reference.

    • Fixed: a bug in the standalone editing window where hint text could be saved as the content of the empty field.

    • Fixed: a bug in the standalone editing window where resizing the window didn't resize the text fields.

    • Fixed: a bug where the Action pop-up menu under the group pane didn't fire unless there were user-added groups.

    • Fixed: a problem where in some cases there were duplicate entries for the same folder in the ad hoc folder list.

    • Fixed: a problem with edit field hints were a & in the label name was output twice.

    • Fixed: a bug in the build process where Bookends was incorrectly marked as supporting non-English languages.

    • Fixed: a bug in Mellel scans when the first character in a citation is @.

Bookends 14.0.5

February 13, 2022

  • Share synced libraries with others (requires macOS 11 Big Sur or later)

    • After uploading your library to the cloud, the cloud pop-up menu will have a new option, Share Library. Use it to send an invitation to other Bookends users to allow read/write or read-only access to the library. Once accepted, you (the owner) and others (the participants) can work with the same library. To share attachments, point the library’s attachment subfolder (set in the File menu) to a file sync service folder (e.g. iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, etc.) that contains the attachments, and use that service’s method to share the folder. If you are sharing with Bookends for iOS, the folder must be in iCloud Drive. Bookends will automate much of this for you when you use the cloud pop-up menu Prepare Shared Attachment Folder.

  • Specify a library-specific attachment folder outside of the default attachment folder

    • Use File -> Set Default Attachment Subfolder to bring up a dialog that let's you set an attachment folder for the open library. Click Browse and select the folder you would like to use, and its full pathname will be shown. Note that if you use the pop-up menu instead of the Browse button you will only be offered subfolders in the global default attachment folder. You must use Browse if you want a folder outside of that hierarchy.

  • Improvements in the edit pane

    • In Light Mode, the field label text is shown in empty fields as light gray "hint" text. This is not done in Dark Mode, in which the fields are a darker shade that provides guidance. The height of the edit field will adjust as you type if you're autocompleting and the suggested text is too long to fit on one line. Finally, label text size will adapt if you change the size of reference text in preferences. If the reference text size is set to 12 points, the label text size will be 12 points. If the reference text size is 13 points or greater, the label text size will be 13 points.

  • Improvements in importing authors when a JSTOR PDF is attached

  • Drag-reorder field labels with a simple click and drag

    • This previously required that the Command key was pressed.

  • If Postbox is your email client, sending an email from Bookends will now include attachments

    • Sending attachments already works with Mail and Microsoft Mail.

  • Floating citation references will include the volume number of edited books

  • The annotation popover window will close if you copy the selected text with Command-C or the Edit -> Copy menu

  • Bookends will search up to the first 5 pages of a PDF for a DOI when it is attached

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: a bug in the automated search window "find" function.

    • Fixed: a bug in preferences where restoring the factory default for the Summary views set incorrect values.

    • Fixed: a bug that could result in "record locked" errors.

    • Fixed: a crash that occurred if you closed the preferences window with a listbox edit cell active.

    • Fixed: a bug where changing some labels would cause an error.

    • Fixed: a bug in editing very large fields where deleting text could cause the view to become truncated.

    • Fixed: a bug that in rare circumstances could cause the attachments folder to be moved to the Trash.

    • Fixed:a bug where the text color would be black after editing a field in Summary view while in Dark Mode.

    • Fixed: an issue with saving edited text in Dark Mode.

Bookends 14.0.4

January 8, 2022

  • All-new reference edit pane

    • All fields are in a vertical scrolling list. Field sizes automatically adjust to accommodate their content. You can reorder the fields in preferences (Refs tab) or by Command-dragging a field's label and dropping it on the label of another (the dropped field will be moved to the position before the receiving field). You will have to recreate the field order if you had changed it in previous versions of Bookends. If the contents of a field exceed a certain height, a disclosure triangle will allow you to expand or collapse the field. If more than one field has a disclosure triangle, all will expand or collapse together. Cloud Sync will sync the field order between Macs. The All concise view has been removed as it is now redundant.

  • File -> Export PDF Annotations

    • This operation exports annotations in PDFs attachments. You can choose to work with PDFs attached to the selected references, those in the Hits List, or all references in the library. Annotation contents can be sent to the clipboard or a text file, and you can specify the kind of annotations you want extracted (highlights, underlines, and/or notes), and the metadata associated with the annotations (PDF pathname, the page on which the annotation occurs, and/or the date it was last modified). The page label is extracted from the PDF itself, and may or may not correspond to the page of the published article. Annotations with content (e.g. Notes) usually have modification dates; those without content (e.g. plain highlights) usually do not.

  • Right-click on the PMID or PMCID fields and obtain a contextual menu that will open the article in your browser

    • This already exists for the URL and DOI fields.

  • If you try to sync a BibTeX file but none of your references have citekeys a message will explain why nothing was saved

  • In the edit pane, clicking on the color label name at the top will bring up the pop-up menu allowing you to change colors

  • Improvements in importing metadata from JSOR when attaching a PDF

    • Note that the data can be incomplete because JSTOR is inconsistent in providing it. The direct JSTOR search imports higher quality information.

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: a bug that caused Bookends to mistakenly create the folders /Bookends/Attachments when the default folder was set to iCloud in preferences.

    • Fixed: Fixed a bug where a right-click on an underline notecard offered the possibility of editing it.

    • Fixed: a bug in BibTeX sync where extra @ characters were added at the beginning of the first reference.

    • Fixed: JSTOR PDFs will no longer be attached to the wrong reference if there is an error when trying to import the metadata.

    • Fixed: a bug where Global Change -> Move Attachments of the selected references didn't work.

    • Fixed: a bug where an error was thrown when moving attachments to a top level folder.

    • Fixed: a crash in the Online Search window when a search hadn't been performed and the Find -> Done button was clicked.

Bookends 14.0.3

December 11, 2021

  • Manipulate PDF annotations with a contextual menu

    • Right-click on an annotation type that Bookends supports and you’ll see a contextual menu that lets you delete, copy, edit contents, or change the color, depending on the type of annotation selected.

  • Turn on continuous highlighting and set the selected text to the desired color by pressing Control-1 to 5 when the annotation popover window is active

  • Global Change -> Move Attachments

    • This function lets you move or copy the attachments in your selected references, the Hits List, or in the entire library to a folder of your choice. There is also the option to remove annotations from PDF attachments as they are moved or copied. This would be useful if, for example, you created a library-specific attachment folder and wanted to move all the attachments in that library to the new folder.

  • Watch folder improvements

    • Bookends will create only one reference when downloading very large files from a browser to the watch folder..

  • The author/editor separator field is disabled in the BibTeX import filter

    • BibTeX expects names to be separated with " and ".

  • Created a keyboard shortcut for Copy DOI (Shift-Command-G) and added this option to the reference list right-click contextual menu

  • The default attachment folder pop-up menu in preferences now offers “Bookends iCloud Folder” as an option

    • This was previously “iCloud Folder For iOS Sync”, but was changed to reflect the fact that because Bookends 14 uses native cloudKit, it can create this special dedicated folder itself.

  • When present, subtitles will be added to the title of books found on Google Books

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: a bug that could corrupt the preference file containing the reference Types and labels.

    • Fixed: added an extra check to prevent an ad hoc attachment folder from being added more than once.

    • Fixed: a bug where libraries weren't being synced on open.

    • Fixed: a bug where the PDF comment size setting in preferences wasn’t saved.

    • Fixed: a bug in the Formats Manager where the controls for setting case options could be invisible if the window was resized.

    • Fixed: a problem with custom formats where the bibliography example in the format window would be empty if the citation example was empty.

    • Fixed: a bug with the BibTeX sync file where the leading @ of an edited reference was stripped off.

    • Fixed: a bug where the wrong crosslink type was added to a reference when the link preference default was changed from Book:Book Section.

    • Fixed: a bug where resetting the concise views to the factory defaults in preferences wasn't saved.

    • Fixed: a problem where syncing preferences could result in a "503" error.

    • Fixed: a bug in the automated PubMed search window where the entire metadata field could have a background yellow color.

Bookends 14.0.2

November 6, 2021

  • New PDF annotation popover

    • When you select text in a PDF, a small floating window allows you to set the highlight color (or none) and offers the following choices: Highlight, Underline, Copy, PDF Note, Notecard, Quote. Clicking Highlight, or double-clicking a highlight color, will highlight the selection (if no color is selected, the window will simply close). PDF Note will create a new PDF note that contains the selected text. Notecard will make a new notecard containing the page number and the selected text as the body, and Quote will make a new notecard with the page number and use the selected text as a quote. If the PDF is displayed in the PDF view pane, Notecard and Quote will open the note stream and display the new notecard. If the PDF is displayed in the edit pane Attachments tab, the selection will be added but the edit pane will remain. The floating window is dismissed when you click a button or click outside of the window. The items in the old Action pop-up menu that performed these functions have been removed.

  • Improved UI for setting PDF highlight colors

    • This function lets you move or copy the attachments in your selected references, the Hits List, or in the entire library to a folder of your choice. There is also the option to remove annotations from PDF attachments as they are moved or copied. This would be useful if, for example, you created a library-specific attachment folder and wanted to move all the attachments in that library to the new folder.

  • Added a keyboard shortcut for Make Note in the PDF viewer: Shift-Command-E

  • Automatic retrieval of PDFs from PubMed Central

    • If Bookends is unable to fetch a PDF from the publisher for an article imported from PubMed (e.g., if you don’t have journal access privileges), it will check to see if it's available from PubMed Central and, if so, download it from there.

  • Certain types of errors in a format will be automatically repaired when it is opened in the Formats Manager

  • A sync warning will be issued if your library is stored in iCloud Drive even if it is not in the Bookends iOS sync folder

    • Sync will be suspended for the current session, and can be re-enabled after you move the library file in the Finder.

  • Updated Bookends Browser to maintain compatibility with certain sites

  • The $ sign won't be escaped with formatting using BibTeX Markup

  • Updated database engine

  • Editing PDF file tags works in Monterey

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: a rare bug where using a legitimate format could result in an error.

    • Fixed: a problem where EndNote PDFs weren't being transferred when importing from EndNote.

    • Fixed: a bug where the tag was still added after canceling the addition of a PDF tags to multiple selected references.

    • Fixed: a bug in the concise views where the name of file tags could be colored incorrectly.

    • Fixed: a rare problem where the first reference list column could be hidden.

Bookends 14.0.1

October 10, 2021

  • Create peer-to-peer reference links directly in the library window

    • When two or more references are selected, the menu option “Link Selections (Peers)” will be enabled in the Refs menu and the right-click contextual menu. This option will create peer-to-peer links even when the Links Inspector is not open. Note that if the references already have a link relationship, it will be changed to peer-to-peer.

  • Create a synced .bib file containing all your references in BibTeX format

    • This is a one-way (Bookends -> file) sync on demand, which may be useful to those who use Bookends references with other apps such as LaTeX, Pandoc, or TeXstudio. To initiate, use File -> Create Synced BibTeX File. Once created, the menu will read Sync Linked BibTeX File. When this is invoked, Bookends will update the file with references added, deleted, or edited. Note that Bookends stores the .bib file's alias, so you may rename it or move it to another location on the HD and Bookends will still find it. If the file has been deleted or is stored on an external drive that is not mounted, the menu will revert to Create Synced BibTeX File. Bookends identifies references by their citekey, so any references without citekeys will not be synced to the linked BibTeX file. This function uses the format "BibTeX.fmt". If you have created an alternative BibTeX format with a different name, you must rename it to BibTeX.fmt to be used for syncing. Note that this function has nothing to do with cloud sync -- it just maintains a local .bib file that can be synced (updated) on demand to match your library.

  • BibTeX format updated

    • Fields with missing content will no longer be output, which in many cases will improve processing speed and reduce the size of export files.

  • The names of saved advanced PubMed searches can be of any length

    • Previously they were limited to 31 characters.

  • If an error occurs during sync, Bookends will offer to "Force Full Sync", which will often override the problem and allow the sync to finish

    • You will also have the option to temporarily suspend syncing during the current session.

  • When an item from a term list for a non-scrolling field (e.g. Journal) is dropped on a reference, the contents of the corresponding field will be replaced

    • Previously, the item was appended to the existing text.

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: a bug that prevented AppleScripts from working.

    • Fixed: a bug in floating citations where pressing Return or Enter didn't insert the temp citation of the selected reference.

    • Fixed: a bug in the inspector's Rename Attachment function.

    • Fixed: an error that would occur when clicking on the inspector’s import icon when there were no references in the list.

    • Fixed: a bug where duplicating a reference could cause and error on sync.

    • Fixed: a rare problem where the online search list of references could become unresponsive.

    • Fixed: eliminated an unnecessary dialog in the inspector asking permission to detach a PDF that was moved to the Trash.

    • Fixed: the characters " and # will be excluded from citekeys generated by Bookends.

Bookends 14.0

September 10, 2021

  • Bookends 14 has a new bundle id

    • This means that older versions of some apps that integrate with Bookends (e.g., Mellel, Nisus Writer Pro, DEVONthink, and Tinderbox) will not be able to send AppleEvents to Bookends 14. We have worked with each of these companies and they have released updates that work with Bookends 14: Mellel 5.0.8, NWP 3.2.2, Tinderbox 9, and DEVONthink3 3.8 work with Bookends 14.

  • Introducing cloud sync version 2 (v2)

    • The original Bookends cloud sync (version 1) used Apple's CloudKit JS APIs, which give web apps access to iCloud. Bookends now uses Apple's native CloudKit. You must be signed into iCloud and have enabled iCloud Drive in System Preferences to sync. The major advantage at this time is that v2 uses your macOS iCloud account information, meaning that there is no need to log in separately to iCloud in Bookends. Importantly, native CloudKit will allow us to expand Bookends' sync capabilities in future releases.

  • Much improved PDF search results

    • The results of a PDF search will be listed, with the bolded search word shown in context along with page where it was found. Clicking on an item in the list will take you to its location in the PDF.

  • New Cited By Inspector

    • If the parent reference has a PMID this inspector will use PubMed to find all of the references in which it has been cited. You can view a reference in your browser by double clicking on it, or import it by clicking the download button, right-clicking, or drag and drop. When using the first two methods, you have the option to automatically link the imported reference to its parent. Note that the references found by PubMed may or may not correspond to other sources that track citing references. Hover the pointer over a reference to see the full contents in the help tag.

  • Cited In Inspector adds PubMed as a source

    • If the parent reference has a PMID Bookends will use PubMed to find which references are cited in the parent reference. PubMed has much more information about cited references than CrossRef and the results are resolved much more quickly. If there is no PMID and the parent reference has a DOI, Bookends will use Crossref as before. From the inspector you can view a reference in your browser by double clicking on it, or import it by clicking the download button, right-clicking, or drag and drop. When using the first two methods, you have the option to automatically link (work: work cited) the imported reference and its parent. Hover the pointer over a reference to see the full contents in the help tag.

  • The two Cited Inspectors won't change the parent when used to import references

  • The way that Link Inspector relationships are created and synced has been completely rewritten

    • Although transparent to users, this will make it easier to add improvements in the future.

  • The Attachments Inspector now shows each attachment’s path name

  • Added a peer-to-peer relationship to reference links

    • This is useful if you want to link references that do not have a hierarchical relationship, for example references cited in a paper (article-to-article) or chapters in a book (chapter-to-chapter).

  • Various modifications to the Link Inspector

    • The ability to add comments to individual linkages has been removed. Cosmetic improvements.

  • Double clicking on a reference will not toggle the edit pane or PDF viewer if the Links, Cited In, or Cited By Inspector is open

    • In those cases it will simply set the Inspector parent to the reference clicked on. Previously, it would do both.

  • Show attachment names in the reference list column view

    • You can set this in preferences (Lists tab) or with a right-click contextual menu in the reference list. Names of multiple attachments belonging to the same reference will be separated with semicolons.

  • Use Bookends Browser to replace an orphaned attachment

    • Select the reference with the orphaned attachment and open Bookends Browser in the display pane. Depending on the URL stored with that reference, the browser will display either the PDF or the reference's web site from which you can navigate to the PDF. Click the paper clip attach icon and the PDF will be downloaded and replace the existing orphaned attachment. Note that if you have more than one attachment, orphaned or not, Bookends will simply add the PDF to the attachment list and you should detach the orphaned attachment yourself.

  • The reference list contextual menu "Sort By Label" has been changed to "Group By Color"

    • This reflects the difference between sorting the Label column, which is ordered by the text assigned to each color, and this function, which groups references with the same color.

  • Bibliographies sent to disk as UTF-8 or UTF-16 will have the extension .txt

    • If output as Plain Text, the extension will be set to .ris if the RIS format is used.

  • There is a new AppleScript property to get the path to a library's default attachment subfolder, if any (library attachments subfolder path)

    • If no library subfolder has been set, Bookends will return the path to the default attachment folder itself.

  • pographic quote marks will be converted to their BibTeX equivalents when "BibTeX Markup" is specified for the formatted output

  • A reference’s unique ID can no longer be changed by the user

    • Too many features that depend on the unique ID and would break if it were changed.

  • On launch Bookends will check for and "forget" ad hoc attachment folders that are in the Trash

  • The reference list right-click contextual menus have been modified

    • Right-clicking on the paper clip icon now only shows options relevant for attachments.

  • Improved user control when downloading PDFs

    • A Skip button in the PDF -> Download From Internet dialog immediately stops the attempt to get the current PDF and moves to the next selected reference, if there is one. This is useful if the online source is slow to respond or hangs, and is more reliable than pressing Command-.

  • Online searches can be stopped by clicking the progress wheel

    • This is more reliable than pressing Command-.

  • Improved Autocomplete Paper UI

    • The sheet remembers its dimensions between openings during a session. When references are found, the default button changes from Search to Import, and import will be triggered by pressing the Return key.

  • When fetching metadata using PDFs downloaded from pre-print servers like bioRxiv and medRxiv, Bookends places the name of the pre-print server in the Journal field

    • Note that once the paper is published that version will receive a new DOI.

  • Any text in the live search field will be selected after you select and group and the reference list is updated

    • This makes it easier to delete if you no longer want to filter the results.

  • If present, the following characters will be removed from automatically-generated BibTeX keys: ’\&^

  • When attaching a PDF whose reference already exists in the library, you will still have the option to attach to a new reference and import the metadata

    • This is be useful if, for example, you are adding separate PDFs for a book and its chapters.

  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed: the format of the date in the Added column when duplicating a reference.

    • Fixed: a cosmetic fix for the display of the selected reference’s text in the Link Inspector when it is in the background.

    • Fixed: a crash that could occur in Big Sur when running the Bookends demo on the same machine where there was an old version from the Mac App Store.

    • Fixed: a bug where failure to close the color picker in preferences could lead to an error message.

    • Fixed: the Google Books online search now responds to Command-.

    • Fixed: a bug that prevented changes to Types and field labels from being synced via the cloud.

    • Fixed: a bug where styled text in the Short Title field wasn't toggled to plain when it should be when formatting.

    • Fixed: a bug where the Attachments Inspector and pop-up menu of attachments weren't updated immediately after reattaching a file.

    • Fixed: the Attachment dialog subfolder pop-up menu will no longer show folder aliases the user placed in the default folder.

    • Fixed: a bug where the links column didn't update immediately when replicating a book as a book chapter.

    • Fixed: a bug where starting the watch folder without it first would result in the import of hundreds of files from the Bookends bundle.

    • Fixed: several bugs in the marooned file inspector that could cause a file to be listed as marooned even if it wasn't.

    • Fixed: a bug in several printing functions that resulted in white text on a white background when in Dark Mode.

    • Fixed: a bug in Pages scanning where the format's hanging indent setting was only honored for numbered bibliographies.

    • Fixed: two bugs in creating a bibliography in Dark Mode where the output was either black text on a black background or the file sent to disk was empty.

    • Fixed: a leading > for a comment will be excluded when copying the contents of a notecard.

    • Fixed: an error that could occur when the library was synced as it was closed.

    • Fixed: the color for a color label is now positioned correctly in the Summary view.

    • Fixed: an error that could occur when clicking on certain types of PDF annotations.

    • Fixed: a bug that in rare instances would cause an “illegal cast” error.

    • Fixed: a bug where user-defined Term List weren't remembered between launches.

    • Fixed: a bug in the PDF search field when a recent menu item was selected.

    • Fixed: a bug that prevented autofilling of individual fields from working.

    • Fixed: a bug that could cause a PDF to be scrolled to the end when opened by changing references using the arrow keys.

    • Fixed: a bug that caused the text of a field edited in the enlarged field window and then saved in Dark Mode to be 2 points too large and black.

    • Fixed: an error that could occur when dragging a reference from the floating citation window to a Mellel document.
