A bookmarklet is a bookmark that contains JavaScript code to extend a browser’s functionality. The small bookmarklet below will cause your browser to send the URL of the open Web page to Bookends for macOS, which will open the same page in Bookends Browser.

Drag and drop the following hypertext link onto the bookmark bar of your browser:

Open In Bookends

(If you want a preview of what the bookmarklet does, click the link.)

If the URL points to a PDF, you can import and attach that PDF to a reference in your library. If it points to a page with reference metadata that Bookends can recognize, you can import the metadata. See the section in the User Guide (available in the Help menu) on “Bookends Browser”.

If the bookmarks bar is hidden in your browser, show it by pressing

Safari and Chrome: Shift-Command-B

Firefox: Command-B
