Updating reference after changing folder

Hi guys,
During the last ten days I have been reclassifying my bibliography into reference folders and tagging the references with multiple categories. In my "workaround", I just move references from one folder to another and update the categories, very easy but veeeeeery boring and time consuming. Sadly, I have had multiple problems with this. I want to highlight two of then because they are very repetitive and they obviously are some issues to improve in future versions.

Date Created column when looking at references and notes

Can you pls consider having this re-added as an option when you customise the notes and references view panels?

It has always been useful when importing references especially, given you can't alwats be sure how they will show up in terms of title and author given the plethora of referencing formats. Having to troll through a list of almost a thousand references to try and find what you have just added is bloody annoying.

thanks

ciao

How do I search on Notes in Bib 9 by Reference Id? In fact can I search numbers in a Bib 9 notes field at all?

In Bib 8 I select a notes folder, go to the search pane on the right and type in the reference id, i.e. 507, in the Fast Search field. Hit enter and all notes with that number are returned to me.

In Bib 9 I select a notes folder, go to the search pane on the right and type in the reference id, i.e. 507, in the Fast Search field. Hit enter and nothing at all happens.

I know there are multiple notes that have 507 in them, I can see them if I search by Author.

I subsequently tried search years (i.e. 2012). Again no results. It appears ayt Bib 9 will not search on numbers in notes.

Is there a way to launch a note from within the note pane under Attachment?

Under Bib 8 the Notes pane was an active tool. Not least because there was the convenient New Note button at the top of the Notes Pane, which brought up the Create Linked Note window, and then it sent you back to notes pane and your document so you put content in your note. Under Bib 9 the Notes pane seems to be for display purposes only and if I want to create a new note I seem limited to to the Ribbon and its fussy drop down. This in turn brings up a full notes window rather than returning me to the notes pane, and to get my document to paste from I have to toggle between Windows.

Categories showing in very odd fashion

Evening All

I upgraded to 9 from 8 over the weekend and am now in the process of finding my way around it. I've read with dismay that Categories now show in a non-hierarchical manner (i.e. not under their folders) in the category pane, but that is only part of my problem.

The dump (which is only how I can describe how it appears) of categories in my category pane is also:
1) not complete; some catgories only show under their parent entry and some seem not to be showing at all. What shows seems quite random.

cannot load HELP files

I have downloaded the current version of Biblioscape 9, registered it, and find that the Manual does not load. I get the following message: mk: @MSITStore:C:\Biblioscape 9\Biblioscape.chm.

Problem with editing

I have no idea what I did, and I cannot figure out how to fix it.

I am working in Biblioscape 9. I was editing records and tried to make the Year/Vol/Issue/Start/End Page column a bit wider so I could read it better. I apparently dragged the field with it and the whole line moved to become a subordinate field of Keywords. When trying to move it back, the whole thing (year et al. under Keywords) became subordinate to Abstract. There is a plus symbols to open and close all the fields underneath Abstract. When closed I cannot see the keywords or year/vol/etc.

what is new in 9.0.9.3 ??

Thanks

registration key

Hi, Paul --
Yesterday I upgraded from ver. 8 to ver. 9. Do you have any idea when my registration key might arrive? I am using the trial version and do not want to run out of time.

Duplicate check

Is it possible to turn off the automatic duplicate check?

Thanks,
Julia
