10.x

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?

Thanks

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.

STYLES

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.

Thanks

Journal list

I am presently using BS 10 with Word 2010 on a PC under Windows 7. Biblioscape automatically puts the full journal name in the bibliography while the journal requires the abbreviated name. As an old user of BS (since version 4) I have looked for the journal list to edit it, but I could not find it on the ribbon. I probably need to enter the abbreviated name as a secondary journal name in the bibliography style. But how can I access the journal list? Alternatively, could you suggest a workaround?
Best, Andre

Font size in Windows 10 on new Lenovo Yoga Laptop

When I use Biblioscape 10 with my Yoga laptop (with Windows 10) displaying on an attached external monitor (either at work or at home), Biblioscape works fine. But when I do not have an external monitor, turn on the laptop, open Biblioscape thus viewing Biblioscape on the laptop's own monitor, the default fonts are abnormally tiny and difficult to read. When I try to use the Options Change Default Font command in Bibliosapte to try to change the font, the font is not changed. All other aspects of Biblioscape appear to function normally. I don't see this happening with any other programs.

Any suggestions

Drag and Drop Documents

Dear Paul,

Would it be possible to implement a "drag and drop"-possibility for pdf-documents into references: When dragging a pdf on the "Links"-pane the document will be copied under attachement-folder and a link is created. That would be very helpful.

Thank you
Marcus
