    Hi to all. I have a simple question: a way, or the simplest way, to import bibtex citations in Ulysses notes. I'm starting using bibdesk with Ulysses and need (please urgent...) help!!

    Well, you don't give enough information about your situation to be of much help, but look at "Copy As..." under the "Edit" menu in Bibdesk. There you can find scads of different citation formats to paste into a note.

    But you don't say (at minimum) whether you're creating footnotes or a bibliography, or whether you're using LaTeX or something else to output your final document.

    There's probably lots more to your question...

    HTH, Charles

    Thank you for your answer, Charles. I'm sorry for the lack of information. I' writing my PhD and need to insert both footnotes and comments with bibliographic citations. For the final bibliography and editing I'll use Mellel.
    Your tip works well. I edited a template and now I can copy-paste the citations.
    But what if I would create firstly a bibliography in Lyx and then using it as base for citations in Ulysses "via" citation key in Bibdesk?

    Well, I don't understand your use of Mellel after Ulysses. Why bother with Ulysses if you're eventually moving to a "non-semantic" word processor? (Or vice versa)

    I'm writing my dissertation in Ulysses and I export to PDF via LaTeX; nothing more needs be done. That's that promise of Ulysses.

    As far as Lyx is concerned (I neither know it nor Mellel), I think you are unnecessarily mixing document formats that will cause you grief in the long-run, or perhaps even short term.

    I'd settle on a system that centers around Ulysses or Mellel, but not both.

    HTH, Charles

    You're right when you say that mixing formats could cause problems. But I use Mellel as you use LaTeX, so there's nothing strange. I chose to use a semantic text editor to have a plain clear view on my work. Mellel can scan the text to find the previously inserted citations and references (opportunely marked) and give a Bibliography at the end of the work automatically.
    I asked what if I do de reverse: Create a bibliography text file (in LaTeX or rtf) and then use it as database for further reference.
    Thank you for you answers and your interest in my, it seems, absurd questions.

    The bibtex file that BibDesk creates is the bibliographic database. It's interaction with a TeX-based system to produce a formatted bibliography (not to mention citations) is very complicated. Unless Mellel supports bibtex import, I can't imagine it would be useful to you.

    An RTF file contains only style information, no semantics. Although RTF has the concept of a "table," I think it would be awkward to format your bibliographic data this way: it's nothing like the formatting you'd apply to get Chicago format, or whatever.

    I don't believe Ulysses imports either of these formats.

    Bonjour,

    I woud be glad to get some informations an answers....

    How can I work with BibDesk in Ulysses?
    For example, can I put the Cite Keys in Ulysses (the same way I would put the Cite Key in TEXShop)?
    Is there a special way to work with BibDesk in Ulysses? Exists a special command?
    I write with Ulysses and I want to export my text to TEXShop an Microsoft Word (the same text).
    Thanks for help!

    You can use \cite{} directly in Ulysses if you want. If you set an Inline Style with \cite{ as the start tag and } as the end tag, it will be highlighted in the editor. For the export to LaTeX, you don't need to change anything then, for export to RTF you can set the style appropriately.
