Re: citations style mapping and bookends

Download Bookends 12. We've made some silent updates that fix a number of scanning/formatting issues.

Re: Bookends scanning problem

This issue was thoroughly discussed on our forum

https://www.sonnysoftware.com/phpBB3/vi ... f=2&t=3142

It should be resolved now that 10.8.3 is out.

Re: Live Bibliography format issue

This isn't a Bookends bug, or even a Bookends issue, Mellel controls formatting of its own documents.

Re: Mellel 3.0 and citations

Hi,

I'll answer your second question. You need to be using Bookends 11.2 or later for Live Update to work.

Re: Live bibliography and change of reference format?

I'll take that (I'll be wandering by this forum occasionally while Live Bibliography is still new). To change formats, uncheck Live Bibliography, then click the Unscan icon in the bibliography palette. The next time you scan (or check Live Bibliography) you'll be asked to select the format.

Re: Bilingual Database

For those who were following this issue here and on our forum, the problem was a jannuss surmised, this is not a Mellel (or a Bookends) issue, the references that didn't sort the way he wanted had a space in from of the author's name.

Re: Putting a ; character in a reference comment

Hi, This is a function of Bookends, not Mellel. Bookends will treat the multiple citation separator as the end of a citation, even if it occurs in "quoted text". The solution is to either use some other appropriate punctuation, or to change the multiple citation separator that Bookends uses to / or ...

Re: Bookends Question

Assuming that the in-text citation is (BDAG), you need to create a custom citation format. If BDAG is the abbreviated journal name and is entered in the journal field, for example, the custom citation format order would simply be j See the APA 5th format for an example of how custom citation formats...

Re: Editing a citation, after doc is scanned

You can't just rescan citations that have been modified since the last scan. But the reason that kjmatthews wanted to do this will soon be moot, since Bookends will handle consecutive citations in the MLA format correctly in the next update.

Re: Zotero integration

OK, I think I've got it. Please let me know if there are still issues with MLA disambiguation after the next Bookends update is out.

Re: Zotero integration

Hi, Danny pointed me to this discussion. Support for MLA citation disambiguation was added to Bookends in version 10.4, and several tweaks have been made since then based on user feedback. The current issue seems to be that the short title should be in quote marks if the citation is to an article, b...
