I'm looking for something to help keep track of sources. Any suggestions?

I would like to be able to check sources on my Mac, and when I find something relevant to an ongoing project, easily create a link from a project page to the appropriate page of the appropriate file.

I get awful migraines from flashing and certain other animation. So apps which have a lot of animation ar out, and ones where notes scroll separately from the project page/window, or different columns scroll separately within the same project page/window, aren't going to work.

I have tried Pdfoo, but ran into a lot of animation, and couldn't get it to work, and Growly Notes, but again ran into a lot of animation.

For writing, I use a Mac Mini, with MacOS 10.14.6. Current writing software is either NeoOffice or LibreOffice. Current organization software is Calibre, with a number of custom columns to keep track of relevance to my projects. I'd previously used Blik, but that requires moving files to organize them so won't work with Calibre. Current reading software on my Mac is Clearview the reading software. Which is unrelated to the surveillance software. It has its own database for bookmarks, so it doesn't reprocess the original file, but it doesn't help me organize bookmarks by project, and it slows down if I have too many bookmarks.

For reading away from the computer, I've found a few different tools but prefer either the Kindle 5 for mobi or Kindle Dx for pre-processed pdf.
