Bug: Mellel+Bookends hang when inserting more citations

Post by tineline » Mon Feb 09, 2015 7:48 pm

I am from today experiencing a hang when I try to insert additional citations via Live bibliography - have to force quit both Bookends and Mellel. I have 604 citations. I tried to turn Live bibliography off and check if the document would scan - after 8 minutes it was still scanning. Is this normal? Or have I reached the limit of manageable citations? I have yet to write 40 000 words; that means a lot more, although the bulk were in the previous part.

I have tried all combinations of Mellel 3.3.1. + 3.3.8. and Bookends 12.2.3., 12.2.4. and 12.2.5. I have the same problem with all of them. I can easily insert a new citation into an empty document, so it is clearly the document length/no of citations that does it.

This really is a critical problem for writing a PhD thesis.

I am using OSX 10.10.1
