Texmaker Bibliography Autocomplete Outlook

It required a few takes for Parkview Elementary School third-grader Yaretzi Martinez to record her presentation in front of a green screen, so she shared directly with a visitor the details about Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas.

“Gabby Douglas showed us to follow our dreams because she followed her dreams. Gabby won the gold medal when she was 16,” Yaretzi said.

Yaretzi and her novice tech crew, including third-graders Aiyana Velez and Yamileth Ramirez, were recording in the school hallway. She completed her piece after a couple snafus: poor lighting, an accidental press of the delete button and a few noisy passersby.

“She got hurt and didn’t give up,” Yaretzi said of the Olympic champion.

Students in teachers Julie Tessier’s and Michele LeMieux’s classrooms took a multimedia approach to writing biographies. After researching and writing about historical figures and famous people — including Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Michael Jordan, Johannes Brahms, Helen Keller and Amelia Earhart — they recorded their work like mini-broadcasters.

They edited in photos of their subjects to be projected behind them on their recordings. They used iPads, a green screen app called Do Ink, a teleprompter app and a website called Flipgrid to create their work.

Many students chose African-American historical figures, tying their work to Black History Month.

Third-grader Manuel Gomez Perez chose Harriet Tubman. “She led 300 slaves to freedom,” he said.

About using the green screen: “It’s fun!” he said. “There’s a giant picture behind you.”

Tessier said she wanted to challenge her students to bring their projects to life, combining writing and technology. She said many of her students studied people who overcame remarkable obstacles, offering a message of perseverance for students.

Multimedia tools support learning in a way students — savvy in technology — are used to. “This is the world they live in,” she said.

NEW in Version 12.8.3 (August 15, 2017)

•Updated to work with Mellel 4
If Bookends was linked to an earlier version of Mellel you will need to reset this to Mellel 4 in Bookends' preferences.

Fixed a problem on some systems where setting the default word processor to Mellel 3.x could fail.

NEW in Version 12.8.2 (June 24, 2017)

•Show and import other references cited by a reference you have
The Inspector window has a new toggle option, Cited. When selected, the Inspector will use CrossRef to locate the works cited by the selected reference (the parent reference). To change the parent reference, either drag and drop from the reference list onto the Inspector parent reference well, or select another reference in the library and double-click on the Inspector parent reference well. Any that are found will be displayed in a list. References that you already have in your library will have a yellow background -- right-clicking on such a reference will bring up the contextual menu option Show in Library. References that have no DOIs cannot be imported and will be shown with a red background. Double-clicking on a reference that has a DOI will open it in Bookends Browser. An Import button at the top of the Inspector imports the selected references from PubMed if it is available, and if not from CrossRef. Crosslinks will be automatically created for imported references, Work Cited : Work. There are important caveats. First, the reference in your library must have a valid DOI registered with CrossRef. Second, the publisher must have submitted the cited reference metadata to CrossRef -- only a minority of publishers do this. Third, the quality of the metadata varies widely between references, even from the same publisher -- Bookends will display the best information it can, which is some cases is only the DOI.

•Automatically attach a PDF to a matching reference in your library
When attaching individual PDFs, if a DOI or stable JSTOR URL is found you will have the option to "Attach to new or existing reference". If checked, Bookends will try to match the PDF to an existing reference and, if found, attach it. If there is no match in your library Bookends will download it from the Internet and then attach the PDF. This replaces the previous feature that only offered to download the reference from the Internet and then attach the PDF.

•Updated Google Scholar searches to deal with changes made by Google

•Imported references will be added to the selected static group
If no static group is selected or more than one group is selected, the imported references will belong to the All group.

•Checking for updates when you're offline will no longer block until a timeout

•Updated Refs -> Get DOI to deal with changes made by CrossRef

•When doing an Autofill From Internet, existing keywords will be merged with newly download ones

•Improved Retina image support

•Minor update of the database engine

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug that prevented attached web archives from being displayed in the lower pane. Fixed a bug in online search that could cause an error to be thrown if data wasn't returned by the online provider. Fixed a bug that could corrupt the default reference Type options. Fixed a bug that prevented the right-click option "Add To Group" from working. Fixed a bug that prevented user-defined Term Lists from being loaded. Fixed a bug in smart folders where searches restricted to certain groups could return incorrect results. Fixed a problem that prevented some references whose metadata were obtained from CrossRef from being imported. Fixed a bug that prevented the last 10 Import Types from being included when an import filter was saved. Fixed an issue where color labels were not preserved when updating the database.

NEW in Version 12.8.1 (May 13, 2017)

•Major update to the database engine
This should improve performance and stability. Note that libraries created with Bookends 12.8.1 are not backward compatible. When you open a library made with an older version Bookends will make a copy and update the copy to the current version. The older version will be untouched and can still be opened by the older version of Bookends if necessary.

•Modified internal database structure
The schema simplifies storage and retrieval of of attachments and color labels. Note that any existing SQL/REGEX searches involving these properties will need to be recreated.

•Bookends will only import one DOI from an online search even if it is present in multiple tags

•The menu option: Refs -> First Selected scrolls to the first selected reference
The keyboard shortcut is Control-Command-S.

•Set a default PDF reader in preferences
This is useful if you are using cloud sync with Bookends for iOS. In that instance the Finder will try and fail to open any PDFs in the attachment folder in Bookends itself. You can prevent this by assigning a default PDF reader in Bookends preferences.

•Removed direct import from Delicious Library
Now you can tell the Finder to open .bib files with Bookends for import when the file is double clicked.

•Removed export of references as a "Bookends 10-11.1.8"-compatible file

•Reference navigation changes
The navigation commands in the Refs menu (First, Last, etc.) now apply to the references showing in the list. Previously these commands caused the All group to be shown before navigating to the reference.

•File -> Export Attachments will be enabled if any selected reference has an attachment
Previously Bookends just examined the first selected reference for attachments.

•The temp citation metacharacters [- (replace parens with square brackets and exclude authors) and = (suppress Ibid.) work with Mellel

•Get PDF From Internet works with more publishers

•Email individual PDFs
The option to email the PDF being viewed and the reference metadata has been added to the PDF pop-up menu. This allows you to send just the PDF you're looking at, as opposed to all the PDFs that may be attached to the selected reference, which is what the E-mail button and right-click options do.

•Bug fixes
Fixed an error that could be thrown when switching from a list sorted by color label to the single column view. Fixed an issue with some PDFs where a last page with a null label value caused an error or crash when attaching. Assigned Control-Option-Command-D to View -> All Fields to avoid a conflict with the macOS dictionary lookup shortcut. Fixed a bug that prevented Bookends from immediately offering the correct import filter for RIS, BibTeX, and EndNote Export (Refer) text files. References found on Google Books are correctly imported by drag and drop. Fixed a bug that caused some boolean online searches to either fail or throw an error. Fixed a bug in the Bibliography window in which the number of hits shown was incorrect. Fixed an issue where the OK button was always disabled when the Global Change -> Modify File Tags dialog opened even if the combobox had default text. Fixed a bug in assigning the proper text encoding when doing a drag and drop find/replace in a Term List. Fixed a bug that prevented changes made by drag and drop in a Term List from being synced. Fixed a bug in scanning Word documents where the * metacharacter was ignored for author-date citations. Fixed a bug in author-date scanning that caused the authors to be omitted form the second citation of the same reference. Fixed a bug in the format catalog that would cause the same formatted text to be output repeatedly regardless of the format name. Fixed a bug that prevented changes made to Terms by drag and drop in a Term List from being synced. Fixed a bug that prevented the Spotlight search from finding attachments whose name contained a colon. Fixed a bug where changing the subscript metacharacter didn't stick.

NEW in Version 12.8 (March 19, 2017)

•Search your library using metatags
Search for metatags, defined in preferences, by ending the search word or phrase with an ellipsis (either 3 periods in a row or a true ellipsis, …, which is entered with Option-; on a US keyboard). For example, if you have a metatag "Colors" that contains the terms "pastel" and "primary", and "primary" has a sub-metatag containing the terms "red" , "green", and "blue", doing a search for "Colors…" (without the quote marks) is the same as doing a search the the term "pastel" OR "primary" OR "red" OR "green" OR "blue". A search for "primary…" is the same as searching for "red" OR "green" OR "blue". You can restrict searches to a specific field (e.g. Keywords). Note that you can't mix metatag searches with normal word searches -- if the last word is terminated with an ellipsis Bookends will consider all of the words in the box to be part of the metatag name. If there is no matching metatag, a normal search using those words will be performed. You can search for metatags in Live Search, Find (Command-F), and smart groups. In the latter cases this applies to "word beginning with" and "whole word" searches–if you search for "characters" Bookends will perform a literal search for the text you entered.

•Google Books online search
Note a few peculiarities: the total number of hits found can change if you ask for more than 10 references to be returned as the search is done iteratively in batches of 10. Although the references found generally match those found when searching Google Books in a browser, the order in which they are returned may not be the same.

•When attaching a PDF, if Bookends finds a JSTOR stable URL on the first page it will offer to import the metadata from JSTOR

•More publisher web sites are compatible with automatic downloading of PDFs

•Command-Option-drag can now include hypertext links to multiple references at once
How these are handled depends upon the receiving application (e.g. Tinderbox or DEVONthink Pro).

•If a Type name includes the word "article" Bookends will treat the Volume fields as it does for periodical publications
This means that Bookends will expect a volume number and an optional issue number in parentheses. Other Types treated in this fashion are "Magazine" and any Type with the word "journal" in the name.

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug where the default folder settings in preferences were not correct if the folder was in a Dropbox folder subfolder. Fixed several issues that could affect the appearance of corporate names output with various capitalization options. Fixed a bug in live search where words containing underscores were not found. Fixed a bug in metatags where third-level subtags were not found and used in searches. Fixed a Subject Bibliography bug that could cause all references to be output when grouping by Color Label. Fixed a number of cosmetic bugs in the Online Search window. Fixed a bug where there could be an extra empty column in the reference list. Fixed a bug that allowed scanning to proceed even if no formats were enabled. Fixed a bug that prevented Bookends from importing attachments exported with an RIS file from Zotero. Fixed a bug where edits that only changed text case were not synced via the cloud. Fixed a bug in .odt scans where the style of the first character of an author's name could be incorrect. Fixed a bug that could cause a reference to receive a color label by mistake when adding it via a menu to a group with the same name as the label.

NEW in Version 12.7.9 (February 18, 2017)

•Introducing hierarchical metatags, including keywords, in the tag cloud
You can define metatags (previously called virtual tags) that include one or more related tags. For example, you could create a metatag "Solid Tumors" that has the terms "colon cancer", "hepatoma", and "lung cancer". If any references have one or more of these keywords, the tag "Solid Tumors…" (the ellipsis identifies this as a metatag) will appear in the Keyword tag cloud. Clicking on it will find all references with one or more of these keywords. Moreover, you can create a hierarchical relationship between metatags, much as you can with folders and groups. For instance, you might create another metatag "Hematopoietic Neoplasms" and include "lymphoma" and "leukemia". Both "Solid Tumors" and "Hematopoietic Neoplasms" could be placed under a third metatag, "Cancer". Clicking on "Cancer…" in the Keyword tag cloud would find all references in both the Solid Tumor and Hematopoietic Neoplasia metatags. Right-clicking on a metatag will display a selectable list of all its direct tags as well as daughter metatags. Hierarchical metatags work for all tag clouds except Authors and Editors. Note: metatags containing multiple words only work with the Keywords tag cloud because, by definition, the Title, Abstract, and Notes tags are individual words.

•Improved PDF annotation handling in macOS 10.12 (Sierra)
This update has workarounds for a number of problems introduced in Sierra, the major one being that annotations once again have a gray highlight rectangle when selected. Highlighted text that has content (i.e. user-added information) will have a red highlight rectangle when selected.

•Added = as a possible superscript metacharacter

•Added a metacharacter to suppress the use of Ibid. for a particular citation
If a temporary citation begins with =, Bookends will not output an Ibid. in the final scanned citation even if it were otherwise called for. This is handy, for example, when a citation occurs at the end of one section (e.g. a chapter) and again at the beginning of the next, and the use of Ibid. in the latter would be confusing. This feature does not yet work with Mellel.

•Newly imported references will be shown immediately when a smart group is selected and the references belong to that group

•Bookends will warn you if you try to add or edit a file tag in a locked PDF

•The Find dialog (Command-F) has a Reset button
Clicking this will set all fields to empty and pop-up menus to their factory default options, which may be useful if you are performing multiple complex searches in one session.

•Bookends will remove the ? and * characters from PDF file names it generates
This is to improve interoperability with non-HFS Plus file systems.

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug that could cause an error when searching PubMed and finding references with issue numbers. Fixed a bug in importing BibTeX files. Fixed an error that was thrown when trying to save Google Scholar searches. Fixed a bug in scanning RTF files that could cause some temporary citations to be missed. Fixed a bug where an error message could be thrown when scrolling through the results of an Amazon search before all the references had been returned. Fixed a bug that could cause citations in unscanned/rescanned NWP documents to lose the text style of the paragraph they are in. Fixed a bug in scanning NWP documents with images where the document could be truncated. Fixed a bug in Bookends for iOS sync where the first initial of an author's name was omitted. Fixed a bug where virtual tags created with a right-click were not saved. Fixed a bug where the format Type and not the reference Type was output when the metacharacter y was used in a format. Fixed a bug where the factory default tag cloud stopwords were not installed in fresh new installs of Bookends. Fixed an importing bug that could cause the issue in the Volume field to be repeated. Fixed a bug where changes in import filter settings for parsing names weren't saved. Fixed an import bug where filters having Source parsers would cause an error. Fixed a bug that could cause a crash when syncing attachments with Bookends for iOS over Wi-Fi. Fixed a formatting bug when using surname-only in secondary citations.

NEW in Version 12.7.8 (January 20, 2017)

•Implemented a workaround for a scanning bug in Microsoft Word 2016 15.28 and later
The scanned document should once more retain hidden citations, text size, and document styles.

•Styled text in abstracts and notes is shown in the Summary view

•Autofill From Internet can use JSTOR if the reference has a stable JSTOR URL

•Unchecking an automated PubMed search in the Import Filters Manager clears the search history
If the list of references previously found and ignored gets very large over time, showing the results of searches can become slow. Unchecking and checking the search again can improve performance.

•Optimizations in the import filter format
Note that import filters created or edited with Bookends 12.7.8 or later will generate an error message if used in earlier versions of Bookends.

•Worked around changes at Amazon so that cover art can be downloaded again

•Restored some PDF annotation features that were unavailable in Sierra due to macOS bugs
There are still problems for which no workaround has been found, and for the time being we recommend that you avoid Sierra, especially 10.12.2 and later.

•Automatic PDF downloading in Bookends Browser works with Nature Communications

•Updated some queries used in advanced PubMed searches to deal with changes made by PubMed

•Added a Library of Congress Z39.50 import filter
Unlike the built-in Library of Congress search, this filter will retrieve Unicode (e.g. accented) characters from the Library of Congress. To import them correctly, set the Bookends menu File -> Import Text Encoding -> UTF-8.

•When outputting names as surname-only in small caps, small caps will be applied to institutional names (i.e., names terminated with a comma)

•Obtain the full hierarchical pathnames to groups in your library via an AppleEvent
Implementation details can be found in the User Guide.

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug in Google Scholar import where the wrong reference could be imported. Fixed a bug that caused an error when Bookends Server returns a formatted reference. Fixed an bug in generating a format catalog where the format couldn't be opened. Fixed a bug where an error was thrown if you opened Preferences without having an Internet connection. Fixed a bug that could cause Bookends to throw an error for some edited formats. Fixed a cosmetic bug where the entire displayed result would be highlighted after doing an advanced Google Scholar search. Fixed a bug that could on rare occasions cause the Summary view to have an orange background. Fixed some issues with converting old custom formats to the current schema. Fixed a bug in autocomplete paper where attachments could be renamed even when the "rename attachment" checkbox was unchecked. Autocomplete Paper now works when searching the Library of Congress. Prevented an error that was thrown when the Online Search window was closed before the reply was received. Fixed a bug that caused an error on opening a library when the backup prompt checkbox was checked in preferences. Fixed a bug in Wi-Fi sync with Bookends for iOS where the unique ID was not being transferred. Fixed a bug in formatting author surnames in small caps.

NEW in Version 12.7.7 (December 13, 2016)

•Greatly expanded sources from which you can Autocomplete Paper
In addition to the built-in sources for Autocomplete Paper, you can use Amazon, arXiv, the Library of Congress, and any Z39.50-compliant institution for which Bookends has an import filter. The same filters available in Online Search (i.e., checked in the Import Filter Manager) can be used when you do an Autocomplete paper.

•Created workarounds for PDFKit bugs in Sierra 10.12.2 that crashed Bookends
Note that in Sierra 10.12.2 you can’t make annotations other than highlights and may not be able to see notes and comments in the Bookends PDF annotation view. Until Apple fixes these bugs or we can work around them, avoid upgrading to Sierra 10.12.2.

•Updated the automated PubMed search to work around changes made by NCBI

•The setting for automatically renaming a PDF when Autocomplete Paper is remembered between launches

•Import books from PubMed

•Bookends will treat .nbib files exported from PubMed as text files when you try to import the references

•Bookends will automatically escape "type" to "[type]" if necessary when an SQL search is entered and saved by the user

•Improvements in Bookends Browser
Reference detection in web pages is more robust, automatic downloading of PDFs works with more journals, and web pages are loaded much more quickly. To avoid long delays in parsing web pages with many DOIs, Bookends will limit the DOI candidates it detects to 30.

•You can combine the [ and - metacharacters in a temporary citation
This will remove the author name from the final citation and have parentheses converted to brackets. Use like this: {[-temp cite}. This feature does not yet work with Mellel.

•Remove Duplicates based on DOI or PMID

•The hit (marked) status of a reference will be retained in the daughter when you Replicate as Book Chapter
This means that if you are showing the Hits list when you perform this function, the new (replicated) reference will appear without you having to show All.

•Improved identification of certain publication titles when importing from CrossRef

•The order of annotations shown in the note stream better corresponds to the order in the PDF

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug with two different source parsers that imported from sequential tags in a text file. Fixed a bug in the pdf annotation view where the Command-+ and Command-- keyboard shortcuts for zoom in and zoom out didn't work. Fixed a bug that prevented removal of format Types that the user tried to delete. Fixed a bug in a descending sort of the single column list when Date Added or Date Modified was in use. Fixed a cosmetic bug in automated PubMed search were the line showing author names could be duplicated. Fixed a bug where the tag cloud stopwords were ignored if the user modified the default setting. Fixed a bug that caused Mellel to remain in the front when some scans were initiated. Fixed a bug that could cause an error to be thrown for some automated PubMed searches. Fixed a bug in proofreading scans where a backslash before and after literal text would be doubled. Fixed a bug where the pop-up menu that selects what type of files to show in the Open File dialog could be disabled by mistake. Fixed a bug in the generation of BibTeX keys where incorrect or illegal text could be included if the first author's name was not entered as surname, first name. Fixed a bug in Autofill From Internet where chapters could have the book title and chapter title mingled in the Volume field and the DOI of the chapter was replaced by that of the book. Fixed an error that occurred when emailing a non-PDF attachment when "remove annotations before sending" was checked in preferences. Updated the PubMed parser so that author affiliations are imported again.

NEW in Version 12.7.6 (October 4, 2016)

•Autocomplete Paper from Google Scholar offers the first 10 matches it finds
Google Scholar no longer allows 20.

•Several changes made in Online Search and Autocomplete Paper using Google Scholar to deal with multiple changes made by Google

•All names of all formats, filters, and glossaries we ship will include the corresponding file extension (.fmt, .fltr, .gloss)
This is necessary because of new code signing requirements in macOS Sierra. Bookends will add the extensions .fmt and .fltr to your custom formats and import filters, respectively.

•Drag and drop importing of PubMed references in a browser works again
Changes in PubMed's servers had broken this function.

•Bug fixes
Fixed a variety of problems with recognition of filters, formats, and glossaries, as well as the display of Bookends scripts by Word 2011 and 2016, caused by new code signing restrictions in Sierra. Fixed a bug where preferences would be damaged by changing the setting for "Surname only" in the list display options. Fixed a bug in showing author names found in PubMed. Fixed a bug where the preference option to remove annotations from emailed PDFs was ignored.

NEW in Version 12.7.5 (September 10, 2016)

• In the Manual Remove Duplicates sheet you can unmark all references with the right-click hierarchical menu item "Unmark All"

•A notification is generated when wifi sync with Bookends On Tap is finished

•Updated PubMed access to use the NCBI HTTPS servers

•Two new citation delimiters: [[ ]] and << >>
These may be useful for those using LaTeX or writing math-intensive papers in which the other citation delimiter options conflict.

•Added user-configurable limits of 100 and 500 MB to the size of PDFs that can be synced with Bookends On Tap

•Bookends will display the contents of attached text files with the extension .tex or .ris

•Open PDF attachments in PDF Expert

•When specifying a default custom folder location in preferences, Bookends will not create a "Bookends" subfolder if you have named the parent folder "Bookends"

•Modified filters will be copied, not moved, to the Custom Import Filters Folder
This means that if you want to revert from an edited version of a filter to the version we distribute, all you need to do is delete the format in the Import Filters Manager (select it in the Import Filters Manager and press the Delete key) and the original filter will be shown. Filters that are in the Custom Import Filters Folder are shown in bold.

• Improved detection of reference metadata found on Google Scholar

•Autocomplete Paper can now be invoked by a right-click option on a reference with an attachment

•When you do a live Spotlight search, the search phrase will be highlighted in yellow if found in the PDFs associated with the found references

•The reference list will not redraw when clicking on empty space in the groups pane
This well avoid lengthy redraws when working with very large libraries.

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug where Bookends failed to use the author and title word "ignore list" when sorting bibliographies. Fixed a bug in Autocomplete Paper that prevented some searches from working with Google Scholar. Fixed a rare bug that could cause Bookends to throw an exception when displaying a newspaper article. Fixed a bug that could cause a problem when scanning with formats that use Ibid. Fixed an error that could happen when setting the custom folders location in preferences to Default. Fixed a bug in Proofreading Scan for Word and Nisus Writer Pro. Fixed several bugs in proofreading scans of text files. Fixed an importing bug where some field tags ending in a colon would not be recognized. Fixed a bug where the attachment display in the editable reference pane did not refresh properly when there were multiple attachments of text or Mellel files. Fixed a bug that could cause an error when opening preferences. Fixed a bug where the first letter of the second half of a hyphenated first name was dropped when converting to initials. Fixed a bug in importing Source fields where the field tag and the metadata are on separate lines. Selecting an import filter that cannot be verified as such now generates a warning rather than an error. Fixed a bug in scanning Word documents where the bibliography font was not set to the default.

NEW in Version 12.7.4 (August 5, 2016)

• Search within the results of an online search
When performing an online search, Bookends will import the results into a temporary database. Press Command-F to reveal a live search field that lets you search among these references. Any text in the lower pane of the search window that matches your search will be highlighted in blue (as opposed to the orange highlighting of text that matches the online search field). You can search all reference fields or selected fields (click on the search field pop-up triangle to select among these). Note that the corresponding import filter determines which metadata are imported, and you can edit the filter if you want information other than the default to be imported (e.g. to import MESH headings to Keywords in the PubMed filter). The search field pop-up triangle also lets you select previous searches, which are remembered when you press Return while the cursor is in the search field.

•Search history is remembered in the main library window
The popup menu in the library window live search field will remember previous searches so that they can easily be performed again. Note that it doesn't record all of the partial word searches that may occur as you type. To have the search remembered, you must explicitly press Return while the cursor is in the live search field.

•Include hypertext links in reference fields
You can paste hypertext links to references in Bookends itself (created with Edit -> Copy HyperText Link -> Copy As Link) or in other applications (e.g. DEVONthink Pro) into any fields in the Main tab or the Notes field in the reference edit pane. These links are live, and clicking on them will take you to the corresponding record. This will not work with reference fields in the Additional Fields tab, and if you edit a notecard containing a hypertext link the link will be converted to plain text. Note that only Paste will insert a live hypertext link, not Paste And Match Style. So if you have assigned Command-V to the latter, you must use Shift-Option-Command-V to use the keyboard to paste in a hypertext link.

•Autocomplete Paper will indicate references that you already have in yellow
The criteria used to determine if an online reference is the same as one in your library will be a matching DOI, PMID, or URL, depending on the online source.

•E-mailing references with attachments works with Microsoft Outlook 365

•Updated importing of unicode characters from Google Scholar to deal with changes made by Google

•The minimum allowable height of the library window reference list has been reduced
This means, for example, that the viewing area of the bottom pane is greater if you invoke Maximize PDF Display when viewing PDF attachments.

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug in OpenURL that prevented users from accessing any but the first URL entered. Fixed a bug where a beep sounded when doing a type-ahead search in the Online Search window. Fixed a bug that could cause an error to be thrown when filling out a reference of Type newspaper. Fixed two bugs in formatting citations citations, one that prevented the name in a subsequent citation from appearing as specified, the other that caused incorrect placement of et al. Fixed a bug in Mellel scans that resulted in incorrect output when using cited pages followed by ad hoc text. Fixed a bug in author-date citations where the italics setting for et al. was ignored. Fixed a bug in Google Scholar import where the Type could be mistakenly set to Artwork. Fixed several bugs in importing from JSTOR and other filters that parsed a Source line. Fixed a bug in scanning where every letter in a temporary citation was considered to be a separate citation. Fixed a bug that prevented Autocomplete Paper from working with Web Of Science. Fixed a bug in Autocomplete Paper from PubMed where entering certain characters would cause a malformed URL error. Fixed an error that could be thrown when shift-selecting more than one author/editor in the tag cloud display.

NEW in Version 12.7.3 (July 14, 2016)

• New file structure for preferences
The new preference file, called Bookends Preferences and stored in the ~/Library/Application Support/Bookends folder, is much smaller than the old, will not grow in size over time, and is resistant to corruption. Existing preferences as far back as Bookends version 11.0 will be converted to the new schema automatically. If you are upgrading from Bookends 10.x or earlier, preference settings will be reset to the defaults.

•Find a group
Use the Action pop-up menu under the groups pane or click on the group list header to search for a specific group. If a match is found Bookends will select that group and scroll to it. If you type in only a partial name, Bookends will search for a group that begins with those letters and select the first one it finds. You can't search for the three mandatory groups: All, Hits, and Attachments.

•Improved single column reference list
Bookends remembers the field the list is sorted by when you click on the column header to toggle between descending and ascending sorts. Cosmetic changes.

•Improved drag visual feedback
The textual content in the drag of items in the reference list will be displayed (e.g. either the temporary citation or, if the Option key is held down, the formatted reference). The pdf proxy icon will be displayed when it is dragged. Previously, only the rectangular outlines of these items were displayed.

•Improvements to OpenURL
Bookends now supports arguments that specify the DOI or PMID: rft_id=info:doi/ and rft_id=info:pmid/, respectively.

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug in Autofill From Internet that uses the ISBN where an editor's name was missed. Fixed a bug where some in-text citations could be missed when scanning a NWP document that as pictures. Fixed several bugs in formatting that affected sorting and numbering of references in a bibliography. Fixed a bug that prevented an online search from being performed if you selected the terms from the search history pop-up menu while the search button was disabled. Fixed an issue that caused an error to be thrown when scanning with certain formats. Fixed a bug that could cause an error when loading preferences. Fixed a bug in the default field settings for the Newspaper Type. Fixed a bug that could cause edited format settings to be saved to the wrong Type if the Type pop-up was used before the information had been saved.

NEW in Version 12.7.2 (June 18, 2016)

• The way that format files are created, used, and saved has been entirely rewritten
As a result, any format you create or edit in 12.7.2 cannot be used by older versions of Bookends. This means that if you use Bookends on more than one Mac you should update to 12.7.2 on all of them. There are many advantages to the new format files, being much smaller, faster to load and execute, much less likely to become corrupted, and insensitive to anti-virus software.

•Swap the position of half-width fields in the reference edit pane
Command-drag and drop the label of one of a pair of half-width fields on the other to swap positions. The pairs are Authors-Editors, Journal-Volume, and Pages-Date.

•When importing directly from EndNote, Bookends will ensure that attachment names are unique

•Changing the reference sort status in preferences will be reflected immediately in the library window

•If the path to the custom folders becomes invalid, Bookends will revert to the default location

•Bug fixes
Fixed a bug that could cause a malformed URL error to be thrown with some advanced PubMed searches. Fixed a bug that could cause an error with some arXiv searches. Fixed a problem with arXiv boolean searches, which once more work. Fixed an error that could be thrown if you Rebuilt a library twice in a row. Fixed a bug in downloading cover art from Amazon when autofilling an ISBN. Fixed a bug that could cause an error message when declining to convert a very old Bookends database to Bookends 12. Fixed a bug in Go To URL where Bookends would ignore the selection and use the first reference in the list.
