Is there currently a way to import multiple references at the same time from Bookends? There is a thread on this but it mostly relates to earlier versions of Tinderbox. I am using the latest version of both TBX and BE.
If I Cmd-Opt-drag from Bookends, I can do only one reference at a time. If multiple references are selected and I click then press Cmd-Opt and drag, then the first reference get created. If I Cmd-Opt and then drag , nothing happens. (Well, sometimes the result is instantly to minimize both TB and BE!)
I have read somewhere that Tinderbox can import an RIS file, but when I create an RIS file in Bookends, drag it from the filesystem, or Cmd-Opt-drag it into Tinderbox I just get a single Note, with the title of the RIS file, whereas I would like each reference in the file to be a separate Note. Same for Tab-delimited.
I am not confident with Applescript, but I have a script from the forum that I have modified and seems to work, but it also does one reference at a time. Maybe I could look at some other scripts and work out how to make it do multiple references, but I am a bit apprehensive about such non-expert DIY solutions. I am no programmer.
Alternatively I do one at a time, though that can be slow for a lot of references.
