I'm going to try to use Mellel more for writing college papers, especially since I'm taking Hebrew this semester and need a word processor with better RTL support. I immersed myself in Mellel videos recently to better learn the program.

 

I see if interfaces well with Bookends for bibliographies. I've been using Zotero. Should I transition over to Bookends? Is it worth the extra investment?

 

Thanks!

Nathan:

 

I have no experience with Bookends but I have used Zotero and if you have all your bibliography info in Zotero and are pleased with it (I was), then I wouldn't think it would be worth the expense and angst of moving your info to Bookends. Just my 2c worth.


Peace!

Greg

I used Zotero in writing a ~20k word thesis (in Word for Mac) and found it sufficient. I've also used BookEnds and can say that it offers far more customization than Zotero; it's a polished commercial app.

Thanks for the info. Double-checking, Mellel doesn't seem to directly support Zotero, so I guess the question is how badly do I want my Bib manager integrated with the various word processors I use. :-)

You can still copy and paste citations manually.

True. I may just forgoe a Bib manager anyway and do all my citations manually. I didn't really even use the citation stuff in Zotero much either. Normally I pull up a TextEdit window and paste all my citations in, using Zotero to store links to online library articles I found. :-)

Oh man, I couldn't live without a citation manager. Sente is my choice though Bookends is excellent. (please note I don't really mean I couldn't live...)
