Los of license key

My Biblioscape lost the license key. I send a lot mails to support@biblioscape.com. But I am still waiting for weeks without any answer.

Many Authors: Insufficient Field Length

I have an article with many authors, this is common in science. In this case this is something like 650 characters. I know how to change the size of a field in the database but the Authors field in bib table cannot be made larger than 512 characters. Why? How can I increase this to 1000 or what is an alternative way to do this?

URL links to files on a network drive

Hello everybody, we recently installed BiblioWeb on a server. The existing URL links to the PDF files work in Biblioscape 10, but not with BiblioWeb. The URLs have a build like in this post: Firefox Compatablility and URL links to files to a network drive. It seems like BiblioWeb changes the URL and automatically inserts a WBR tag ('<wbr>' to column 50 in URL). However, through this WBR tag, the browser no longer finds the PDF-file.



Recently I inadvertently added a category that already exists in BS. The software somehow allowed entering this duplicate but since then several features are blocked (e.g. search by category by double clicking on a category) and I get the following message: ""ElevateDB Error #700 An error was found in the statement at line 1 and column 66 (Expected end of expression but instead found -)". Database repair did not help. Any idea?

Thanks a lot.

Make This Forum Functional!

Please!!! It used to be and can be very useful. At the moment, no meaningful conversations are possible at all as messages do not go through for weeks. Which, especially at the time of a beta, is worse than nothing.

Smart collections

I find the smart collections extremely useful for my work, but have not found a way to order, alphabetize, them, other than by hand, one by one.
Help would be appreciated

Error while exiting the application (BS 11)

After installing a new 11th version of BS, I encounter the following issue while quitting the program.
1. If the current folder is References:

BS always generates the error shown above.

2. If the current folder is not References (e.g. Categories):

BS never generates the error.

OS: Windows 10 x64

Besides, it is desirable to add the item "11.x" in the list "Versions:" on the forum topic form.

Anyone else getting this clipboard error

Clipboard Error

At times when I try to save work I get an error "Cannot open clipboard: Access denied" and then I cannot do any further things in BS.

I have created a shortcut to a procedure to clear the windows clipboard and this generally works.

However what I am trying to work out if it is related to BS or my system ... I do not experience it using any other program. I'm on Windows 10

Anyone else getting this error and if so found a resolution?



BS - Version 11 - comments

Hi Paul,

So far version 11 is working ok. I am using various features as I go rather then doing a run through all the options. So far the look and feel is pretty much the same as BS10 and I have not come across any significant changes, new features/functionalities etc which is why I posted the earlier request for any over view from you. As I come across things I will post here.


1. There has been a new feature added which enable us to clear all styles form notes. This is great, I will be using this a lot.

2. Another Great New Feature - Truncation Issue

Fast Search Scope and Limitations

The fast search does not seem to be searching through this field. What fields does it search through? Can this be fixed?

It is useful to be able to search through all, instantaneously.

Also, can we have an ability to constrain the fast search to the current list please?

Also, can the fields in the Advanced Search match the filed name in the currently displayed references? Or shown them in brackets (much better) or provide some other way that does not require going to the Reference Types via Options.
