Registration Key

I have recently purchased a licence of Biblioscape 10, and haven't as yet received a registration key to activate the purchase. The purchase was made on 30th July.

I have looked in all my emails folder for the key, but the only emails I have received to date are the receipts for the purchase, neither of which contain any identifiable registration key.

Your advice would be gratefully received.

Styles: Punctuation control

In Chicago, the title should be followed by an end-of-sentence punctuation sign. So, I use the Static Text field and put a [dot][space] in there. Works well in most cases. However, some titles end in question marks or exclamation signs, in those cases the formatted result is wrong: "Is This a Book Title?."

How can this be remedied? Might it be possible to add an option to include the Static Text field conditionally, for example after running a regex check to see the end of the previous (Title) field?

Thanks.

Suggestions usability

Dear Paul,

Would it be possible to add a link possibility not only to "FILE" but also to "Folders" (outside Biblioscape)?

Thank you very much

Some difficulties with toolbar in notes

Dear Paul,

when using toolbar in notes following problems occur:
a. change in printer settings ist not stable, printer setting comes back always to size "letter".
b. on small screens with high resolution selection of text size and color is not very comfortable, because these columns are not adjustable. (This is true also for the toolbar in "word add in").
c. would it be possible to save "styles" not only for the current Note, but as templates for all notes?

Thank you very much
Marcus

Suggestion: Attachments

Dear Paul,

I would have a suggestion regarding Biblioscape. In principal a small one, but might be significant.

Currently, a reference can carry exactly one attachment (to the best of my knowledge). There are, however, cases in which this is not sufficient. Examples are:
1) Ebooks, which you have e. g. as PDF and ePub (then you currently have to choose what to put into Biblioscape), or which consists of more than one part.
2) An article PDF with "supplemental material" (for that case, the more common one, I usually combine it into one PDF using acrobat right now)

Drag and drop text without formatting

Paul,

Is there a way to drag and drop text from other applications into a note in BS without any formatting of the text?

Thank you very much

Column sort in References or Search folders

I recently upgraded from ver 6.x to 10.x. When I am in the References folder or 'Retrieve all' in the search folder, I cannot seem to sort by column. The little arrows switch direction when I click on a column head but nothing seems to happen sorting-wise. Am I just being impatient waiting for a large body (>30K) of references to sort itself?

Collection Shoot to word

Paul,

Perhaps a bug: In collection folder, when right clicking on mouse and selecting "Select all" and then "Shoot to word" only the last selected note is trasnfered to word.

Thank you
Marcus

Bug in Collection

Paul,

when working on a "collection" with several notes in it, I can't open the note I have selected. When double clicking on a note, only the first note (on the top) of the collection will be opened. (I have then to jump with forward key to the next notes).

Thank you very much
Marcus

Creating an excerpt

Paul,

Is it possible to select more than one note of a reference and copy/paste it into word (from inside BS or from Word addin)? This would be very helpful to create an excerpt (reference with all notes under it). But perhaps there is another way to do this?

Thank you very much
Marcus
