Bookends 15.0.2 – TidBITS

Sonny Software has released Bookends 15.0.2, adding barcode scanning capabilities to its reference management tool. You can use your Mac’s camera to scan ISBN barcodes, which allows you to import metadata and covers found in Google Books (requires macOS 10.14 Mojave or later). The update also enables automatic initiation of cloud sync for new libraries, enables automatic and on-demand creation of multiple library backups with timestamps, adds Cited By and Cited In buttons in the toolbar, fixes a cosmetic bug in full screen view when the PDF display panel contains image, fixes an error caused by double-clicking on an empty reference list, and resolves a crash that could occur when pressing Command-C while a PDF annotation pop-up window was open. ($74.99 new with 25% discount for TidBITS members, $49.99 upgrade, free upgrade for v15 users, 114.3 MB, release notes, macOS 10.13+)
