I'm wondering whether it is possible to have to wholly independent copies of bibdesk on the same operating system. I'm exploring the use of bibdesk to hold non-traditional kinds of data (e.g., photo information, etc.) and I want to manipulate the types and fields that are present without altering those available in my standard copy of bibdesk or my *.bib reference file. Simply duplicating the program doesn't appear to work; both copies are affected by changes made in one. If anyone could provide some insight into this, I'd greatly appreciate it.
