Biblioscape 7.21 release

Version 7.21 patch can be downloaded at http://www.biblioscape.com/download/bsp7_patch.zip. The above URL always contains the latest patch which includes all the earlier 7.x patches. Please quit Biblioscape first and unzip the downloaded file to your Biblioscape installation folder to replace the old files. Here is the list of bugs fixed and new features added in version 7.21.

  • Improvement: When users insert a temporary citation on the note editor, a link will be automatically created between the note and reference record.
  • Improvement: In the note editor window, when user click on a linked reference, Biblioscape will highlight the temporary citation with the same ID as the selected reference. So user can quickly find where the reference is cited.
  • Improvement: In the note editor window, a new command "Edit | Find Again" is added.
  • Improvement: Toolbar and menu settings in record editor (reference, note, task, chart, and category) are saved between sessions.
  • New feature: For the main records list in references, notes, tasks, charts, and categories module, as well as the categories pane, user can type a letter and Biblioscape will jump to the record that best match what the user has typed.
  • New feature: In the categories pane, a new popup command "Search Plus Children" has been added. It can be used to retrieved all records that have been tagged with the current category and any of its children categories.
  • Improvement: The "Move to folder" window is now resizable. The size is remembered between sessions.

Automatic Linking

Improvement: When users insert a temporary citation on the note editor, a link will be automatically created between the note and reference record.

This does not work for me at all in 7.23. Am I missing something?

Also, will it work if the temporary reference is pasted into a note using "Paste as Plain Text"?

In note editor, there is a

In note editor, there is a References tab on the right. If you drag and drop references to the note text, Biblioscape will create a link automatically.

I see. I was just pasting

I see. Thanks. I was just pasting them in with a shortcut.

a little more...simple user support material

Sir thank you for providing yoiur software. It will let us save money in end notes.
But - as end notes- it does requires support. I am not using it in the proper manner I know it, just for I lack a more "friendly" explanatory sys., like a camtasia or other videos. We have already so much to read !
Thanks again .

We will first expand the online help with text and a few screenshots. We may add videos in the future. Thanks.

Cannot rename or delete Categories

Since installing 7.21 I cannot rename or delete categories. When I try Biblioscape becomes entirely unresponsive.

note editor / links

Links added automatically on adding temporary citation in note editor window seem to dissappear on "save and close" of note.

This happens to new note

This happens to new note only. The bug will be fixed in 7.22 release. If it is a new note, Biblioscape will save the note first before adding the link.

Search Plus Children

"Search Plus Children" is a nice feature; in fact, I suggested it. But it only searches the immediate child categories, rather than all the way down the tree. Can it be expanded?

It is possible. Do you think

It is possible. Do you think there is a need to have separate commands "Search Plus Children" and "Search Plus Descendants"?

Probably not

I don't have such a need. I don't know if anyone else would.

"Search Plus Descendants"

"Search Plus Descendants" will be added in 7.22 release. Thanks.

Is it possible that "Search

Is it possible that "Search Plus Children" and "Search Plus Descendants" don't work anymore? (I'm working with 7.33 on Windows Vista Business). As I understood the features they should retrieve all records that are tagged with either the mother category or a child category or any of the descendant categories. And I think they once worked that way. But when I now use the features (right click on an existing category which contains records and subcategories which also contain records) NO records are displayed at all. Even records which are tagged with mother and child category disappear from the record window. Am I missing something? Thanks for your help, Lars.

Lars, This bug was

Lars, This bug was introduced in recent patch release. It will be fixed in version 7.34 release later. Thanks.
