I know I can make a bibliography of the books I own. But is there anyway to take a book from my library, and find out what all the books quoted were inside that particular book?

I don't think so. Unless tHe book has an author generated bibliography included in the book.

We've talked about creating a bibliography datatype where (I think) we'd tag citations and bibliographic entries, which could in theory be used to generate a list of all the works cited in a particular resource. I think this would be quite useful. I had a need for it myself just a couple weeks ago.

However, I'm not sure if this is precisely the featured I'd heard discussed before or, if it is, when it might be released.

I'd encourage you to add this to User Voice and rally others to vote for it.

Talking about Uservoice, you need to make a few status updates and release a few votes there, don't you?

Yes. I sent someone a note earlier about updating our User Voice account. Thanks for the reminder.

Great idea, Phil. I would vote for it on UserVoice but I don't have any votes free at the moment. Next time something I've voted for gets implemented or gains more traction among other votes, I'll be able to spare another vote or two. I wish we had more votes to play with.

Looks like user voice site is now updated. It is at least showing logos 5 instead of 4 on the header of the page

I think that's all they did. They still haven't marked stuff completed that they've already done in 4.6, let alone 5 (for example this one below). And who knows what else they may have planned or started already for 5a or 5.1 or a future release that they haven't yet marked as such.

But they've only fixed the 'hide' part, haven't they? Or can you do multiple unhide in L5?

The stem search could be removed, though, and probably quite a few more (I hope!).

Hi fgh

You are right - you can't do multiple unhides in L5

Did this ever get implemented?

If you mean the ability to unhide multiple resources at the same time - no this hasn't been implemented.

No I mean finding every work cited in a single resource. Thanks!
