Help with BibDesk Templates, Export, etc.

dstall
Please explain in simple, non technical detail for someone who knows nothing whatsoever about TeX, MMD, etc., in clear steps 1, 2, 3, etc. . .

How can I format output of BibDesk entries to a particular bibliography style?

Where do I find sample of how BibDesk template is used in BibDesk, and sample templates for bibliography styles (mainly Chicago, but maybe also others, e.g. MLA, etc.)?

How do I tell BibDesk which template to use for export?

I want to use BibDesk for independent research (no degree program involved) to output bibliography entries in various styles for copy from BibDesk to paste in Scrivener.

I have installed MacTeX, and may use MMD and LaTeX at some later point, but for now I just want to be able to copy bibliography entries in a designated style from BibDesk to Scrivener, since there doesn't seem to be any way of decoding BibDesk cite strings directly in Scrivener.

I have added an article entry to BibDesk using default categories, but when I export as RTF, the output is the same as displayed for the entry in the lower window of BibDesk, which is a stacked vertical listing.
The following is what appears when exported as HTML -
Phillips:2000uq
The Orthodox West: Old Britain and New England
Phillips, Andrew
Orthodox England  3  4  (2000)

The '3' is entered in BibDesk for Volume, and '4' was entered for Number of Pages.
The output doesn't make any sense of the volume and pages, and is formatted as stacked, vertical list instead of linear, horizontal bibliography format, e.g. -
Phillips, Andrew, The Orthodox West: Old Britain and New England,
Orthodox England,  Vol. 3, March 2000, 4 pp.

There are many ways for this. The primary way intended by Bibdesk is to use it with bibtex.

Anyway, it depends a lot on how you want to use it, with which editor or typesetter program.

As a starting point look at the Wiki. There are also some mentioned in the past on this list.

For many of these questions, first go to the Wiki and read what's on this there. After that you will have some more understanding, and you can ask more specific and useful questions.

Again, read the Wiki. And the Help.

Register the template in the prefs, then you can select it from the export panel.

For copying, you can select it from the Copy As menus. Or you can set a default template in the prefs.

The RTF output is based on bibtex. So it depends on the bibtex style that you use. This is set in the prefs.

Re: Help with BibDesk Templates, Export, etc.

dstall
In BibTeX Preferences - TeX Previews, I've selected 'Generate previews using TeX.
Now when I click on eyeglasses icon at bottom left of bottom pane, a text preview is generated that I can select and copy for pasting which is what I initally requested.
The bibliography entry generated in TeX Preview is formatted as -
[1] A. Phillips. The orthodox west: Old britain and new england. Orthodox England, 3(3):4, 03 2000.

Note that only first word of article title is capitalized, and cryptic formatting of volumes, volume numbers, and date.

If answers to the following questions are covered in the Wiki, please provide a URL -

1) How can I control output of the TeX formating shown in Bibdesk Preview to match Chicago Manual of Style? - http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html

2) Why doesn't first name of author display in TeX preview instead of just first initial?
In BibDesk Preferences, I've selected Display options for 'Display first names', and 'Display "Lastname, Firstname" (not 'Abbreviate first names'), but I'm still getting only initial of first name in preview.

3) Why won't BibDesk cite keys autogenerate immediately? How long should it normally take to autogenerate a cite key?
I've selected Cite Key Autogeneration in Preferences, but Cite Keys are not autogenerating immediately, nor after 30 minutes or more, after saving, closing BibDesk, reopening, etc.

I append the Chicago Style I use via xelatex, biblatex and biber (+ xelatex, with fontspec and polyglossia packages). Make sure you escape any strange characters, like &, as \&, in your bib (including your annotations). This method requires:
    1) in TeX Preview preferences of BibTeX:
        Full path to pdflatex: /usr/texbin/xelatex
        Full path to bibtex: /usr/texbin/biber

Re: Help with BibDesk Templates, Export, etc.

Using BibDesk Wiki for -
Modifying a Template, Adding a Template to BibDesk, and Custom Templates -
http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/bibdesk/index.php?title=Templates#Modifying_a_Template

... I copied a template for Chicago style full citations from Wiki link at Custom Templates, and saved it as RTF
I then added that template to BibDesk per Wiki instructions.

I selected the custom style template for export, and in the RTF file that's exported, all I get are the last names of the 3 entries I created in BibDesk as shown below -
(Phillips, Taushev, and Chesterton , )

Totally useless.

I should be able to load a stylesheet that governs the TeX preview in BibDesk to whatever style I create i stylesheet - Chicago, Harvard, etc., - and then be able to export that preview as well.

The BibDesk gui is lacking in features that would make BibTeX truly user friendly.
As it stands, for the end result (creating bibliography, footnotes),
BibDesk and TeX are incredibly over complicated and extraordinarily difficult!

I append two screen shots of how I use Citation export and Template files. My default is TeX export, and with Option key I export the Default RTF template, which is defined in Template Files as ChicagoCitationTemplate.rtf. It works for me.

Re: Help with BibDesk Templates, Export, etc.

I do not have choice of 'Citation_Pages' for Template under Default Format: TeX cite command in BibDesk Template Preferences, as shown in your screenshot.
Is that necessary?
If so, how do I create that template?

When I export RTF, I just get a copy of the same ChicagoCitationTemplate.rtf file.

I have MacTeX installed. Are xelatex and biber part of MacTeX?

When I search my HD, nothing is found for 'xelatex', but a folder 'biblatex-biber' is found when I search for 'biber'.

If I need to install xelatex and biber, where do I get them, and is there any special method of install?

Can they be installed in MacTex folder?

Will xelatex and biber alter/disturb  my MacTex setup, and cause problems if I later want to use MMD LaTeX, etc.?

Yes, you don't need to do anything about them. I use Texlive 2012. If you want to see where they are installed, you may use the help menu and search for "hidden files." There are many other ways to search for them, for instance with a text editor like TextMate.

No need to do anything. You may not need to use XeLaTeX, pdflatex may be fine for your needs. I need it because of my use of right to left languages.

I put settings back to original -
Full path to pdflatex: /usr/texbin/pdflatex
Full path to bibtex: /usr/texbin/bibtex

I select Export from File menu, then choose RTF for File Format.
I still get nothing but a copy of the same ChicagoCitationTemplate.rtf file with the code I copied from your post.
Is there something missing?

Again, the RTF choice for export and copy uses bibtex to generate the data. And that output depends on the bibtex style that is chosen in the prefs.

If you want to export in the RTF generated from a template (like the default RTF template) than you should select *that* template style.

And I am not sure what you mean by getting a copy of the same ChicagoCitationTemplate.rtf file. Unless you did something wrong, you should never just get a copy of a template file.

BibDesk is very verasatile. And not everything that can be done in all detail can be answered on the wiki. And actually the questions you ask are not about BibDesk, but about bibtex. So the BibDesk wiki won't answer them.

You should use a bibtex style for the chicago style.

The tex preview is used to preview the generated tex, using bibtex. The output is determined by the chosen bibtex style. The preference does not apply to the tex preview.

Cite keys aren't just always generated automatically, that would be a mess, because cite keys would then be changed all the time. They are only automatically generated (when you've turned that on) for new items after all relevant information is filled in (and then immediately). Otherwise, you can force it using the menu.

I re-describe what works for me. These are the two different procedures I use:
    1) Option and Dragging items to paste Chicago style formatted items to whatever text editor I'm using.
    2) If I want to produce a list of Chicago-formatted references, I use Tex Preview.  In texpreview (photo attached), I tweaked a tex file I called chicago which has the code I posted. You do it by editing a TeX template (bottom of picture). Then, in bibtex I select whatever items I want to see formatted and use the button "Tex Preview" at the top to do so. It produces a pdf of "References" I can save. I hope this helps.

This makes no sense. Gildas Hamel talked about tex preview (using biber). Not about templates. Again, those are different things.

You typically don't create that (this is very difficult), you get it from somewhere, or have it in the tex distribution.

But I don't think you want to use (bib)tex.

This is, obviously, and as the name says, for *citations*, not a template for bibliographies.

BibDesk is not meant to be a program for generating bibtex, but to manage bibtex data. It uses bibtex, for preview purposes, primarily as a way to check the data.

TeX is complicated. That's because it's very versatile. You misunderstand the purpose of these programs.

[I'm a "he". No matter (:-)]. Perhaps you'll find helpful to examine the default BibTeX file in Preferences/Tex Preview. Click on Edit the TeX template to do so. The code I gave you is for this kind of "template", strictly for TeX Preview, to produce a pdf. I don't remember exactly what you want to accomplish, so perhaps we can take this conversation off list if you want more precise help.
