Categories - other names

Categories - other names

In the categories module under an individual category item there is an option to add an "other name". The manual indicates that this is the preferred way to add ambiguous terms. So for example the category "nursing home" could have "hostel" as an 'other name'.

When I add "hostel" to the category of notes or references should these then be returned in a category search for "nursing home"? ie I should get all the records with the category "nursing home" plus all the records with the 'other name' designation of "hostel"?

Quick add doesn't work apparantly

I just bought the standard edition of Biblioscape, which I think has great features, running on a windows 8.1 PRO. Now the quick add function doesn't wok apparantly

When I enter any author year and titlewords, the only effect is that my cursor changes for a few seconds to the 'wait cursor'. But further no results, no message ...

no meta-data added at import from pdf

I just bought the standard edition of Biblioscape, which I think has great features, running on a windows 8.1 PRO.But now I encounter problems with the importing references from pdf (add to pdf).

In the first place it is not creating a new reference when I use this function, as it is written in the manual that it should. So I created new blank references and then added from pdf. It adds the pdf to this blank reference and also extracts the rich text from the pdf. But no metadata are added.

Word - Office365

Hi Paul

I am just starting to write a series of articles and am using the BS word addin for the first time. I have Windows 10 and Office 365.
The addin has installed ok but when I open a word document there are no references loaded -- the addin displays
I have tried opening and closing BS and Word in various combinations but no change in result.
Does the addin work with Office365, if so any suggestions that I may try?

Thank you


Feature request: increased Author field size


"A Biblioscape “Authors” and “Editors” field can only take 255 characters at most. If this is not enough for a particular reference, you can put the rest of the author names in another field, for example, in the “Miscellaneous” field." - states the BS manual. I find this solution cumbersome and with the increasing cooperation among the authors, it is relatively easy to exceed the 255 characters limit for joint papers. I suggest that the length of this field should be adjusted up to, say, 1000 characters or so, if needed.

Attachment not found

Hello Paul,
I use 'Attachment' to save the path to the journal articles I reference. Recently I moved these pdfs to my D-drive. Now Biblioscape complains that the files do not exist. In the error message I notice that the drive is ommitted. I suppose Biblioscape assumes that everything is on the C-drive? The path is otherwise correct.

Biblioscape project is questionable

Dear Biblioscape developers!
We, numerous users of Biblioscape, deeply concerned about cessation of upgrading the software since June 2015. Our interesting and topical forum is also fading.
Most of us have collected a large amount of references from corresponding areas of research and been using them for ongoing investigations, so we would like to understand perspectives of the software platform we use.
I hope, most of users will support my address.

Regards, K

special characters

Is there any way to handle special characters, such as umlauts or tildes above letters in authors' names?
