    @kcmacstat this was caused by a silly issue with the update service which we caused some days ago when changing SSL certificates for it – apologies for the inconvenience – I'm working on a fix just now!

    The newest test version is always downloadable from here:
    http://updates.manuscriptsapp.com/apps/manuscripts/alpha/download

    For historical reasons that URL says "alpha" (we are re-naming them to "alpha" / beta" / "production" soon).

    @JRemy the PDF exports indeed don't encode PDF-style hyperlinks for crossreferences. This is quite a complex feature to add to the built-in PDF export we include in the app but is on our roadmap for the LaTeX based PDF export route. I hope this helps!

    @abzhibilt the 1.2 beta version improves on stability a lot and also captures undo issues more predictably, there should be no caveats like this there.

    @Gonzalo-Ros could you open Keychain Access and remove all keychain items that concern Mendeley from there? Manuscripts stores the information needed to authenticate with Mendeley in your Keychain and clearing this can help. This sounds like something is going wrong with the authentication process. If you haven't, please also send us the crash reports. I'm pretty sure this issue is also resolved in the 1.2.3 beta version currently available.

    @kanedo if I copy and paste this markup into a Manuscripts equation, I see the equation gets typeset fine, but the per-line numbering is not applied. Is this what you are seeing as well?

    As a workaround, you could always include the numbering in a static form as part of the equation lines. I think a better longer term option would be for us to offer a styling option for equations to let you choose whether each line gets numbered in case of multiline equations.

    This limitation of only numbering the entire equation, not each line / statement in it, is a result caused by the particular configuration in which Manuscripts renders LaTeX math with the MathJax math typesetting system: the math is rendered for various technical reasons in isolation from the rest of the document and actually the cross-referencing number we show on the side is presented "separately" from the equation. This brings big advantages (such as very fast loading of documents with embedded math markup), and the ability to present the document without even having MathJax available (something which we'll be using very soon when we release the first batch of web based collaborative features to Manuscripts), but also carries this downside. We certainly can work around it and add this styling option though, I've made a note of it as a feature request. Thanks!

    @ifaustino if you continue to get this issue with the 1.2.3 version currently out as a beta, could you please send us the document in question to support@manuscriptsapp.com, please? It would indicate the document contains some references that the citation formatting system doesn't understand. It could be for example due to some invalid UTF8 text encoding that has gone through unnoticed through reference importing – this is an issue I have noticed has caused various subtle issues and we have worked on improvements to further validate and work around issues in incoming reference data (turns out pretty much no reference manager validates very rigorously what kind of text data it imports, so the problem kind of funnels directly to apps like Manuscripts then).

    If the app was quitting when accessing Preferences, that is actually quite likely because of the install being subtly corrupt (it can happen when for example updating the app with too little disk space available for it to decompress fully, or more likely as a result of simply an error during the update process). There were some earlier versions distributed briefly where there was a more systemic issue with the preference screen causing that.

    @eXrld-Xia, @malbert ah, I think this is actually because of an earlier silliness where a certain internal version was versioned 1.2.5. The correct version you should be getting is prefixed 1.2.3. You can download it directly from here:

    @peterwc, @aperritano this kind of workflow is really difficult and brittle to technically implement and not in our plans because MS Word as a file format simply is not even in theory structured enough to carry all the extra semantic information that Manuscripts tracks, and Word mixes the content and styling and really makes a huge mess of the files edited with it. What we are working on is a mode of collaboration where your collaborators don't need to install apps to comment on and make change suggestions to the document, i.e. you can just send a link to your collaborator and they'll be able to read and comment on it. I hope this is a good match to your needs :)

    @mynona the citation style format from EndNote is not to my knowledge convertible to the open Citation Style Language style system that Manuscripts and effectively everyone else but EndNote use in referencing tools, and indeed there is some legal history for 3rd parties who've reverse engineered that format that we don't feel like repeating (http://dltj.org/article/endnote-zotero-lawsuit/ – fortunately the case was dismissed but to my knowledge so was the feature). There are fortunately more CSL styles available by now than EndNote styles, the style repository and tools for formatting citations using those citations is all open source, and they can be created and modified with the citation style editor at http://editor.citationstyles.org/about/ (admittedly not as nice a tool as what EndNote provides for editing styles).

    I'm taking a look at the EndNote casing issue with your EndNote library today. This particular import issue was still not captured in past 1.2 betas.

    add side notes on why I added some text or equation etc

    @redoxmatlab this is in the works :-)
