  1. Middle Click Scroll

    The PDF reader is almost unusable for me. In other applications I always use middle click mouse button to scroll down faster. You can adjust the speed while you hold down the middle mouse button. Please add this hyperfast-accurate navigation feature!

      • I suggest to provide information in each document in which additional folders has been placed.

        The documents that are placed in a particular folder are often of importance to other folders (subjects) or shared groups. If in each document there will be an indication in which other folders this document is already located, it will save time checking.

        • Desktop app UI should be flat, similar to web-based library UI

          UI design in www.mendeley.com/library looks much cleaner and easier to use than the skeuomorphic UI design of the desktop app (at least that's what it looks like in macOS). Consistency between both UIs would be better, specially if the design follows the lines of the web-based library.

              • Highlight Icon change according to selected color, color button opening list of colors

                Currently when selecting a specific color for highlighting, the icon remains yellow (instead of changing to red or any other). That becomes confusing when using multiple colors

                Also, the color button does nothing when pressed, forcing users to press the thin 'downwards arrow' to select color. Considering the difference of spaces allocated, either add the same functionality to the whole button, or simplify it by making it one big dropdown menu

                  • Create a plug-in for scrivner

                    I really wish there were a way to insert citations and a bibliography with Scrivner or at least a way to make the process of moving between Scrivner and MS Word more palatable. Last time I exported a document from Scrivner, I spent 3+ hours adding all of the citations back in...not fun!

                      • Add an "Cite the selected Document" in the in-app menus.

                        Add this option to the ribbon of the MSword plugin, so that the document selected in the main desktop application can be cited directly inside MSword. Thus, the newly inserted documents can be cited easily without the need to search or switch between the applications.

                                • Native 4K UHD Support for Mendeley for Windows

                                  All Buttons and the Search-Bar are way too small on Windows 10 on 4K.
                                  Mendeley should really reconsider the approach in which it handles resolutions above Full-HD.
                                  4K, 5K and even more seem to be the new standard, so why is Mendeley not updated to this resolution Standard.

                                  The following really shoud be fixed:
                                  Lager Search-Bar
                                  Larger Font Sizes
                                  All should be clear and crisp

                                  At the moment to use Mendeley 1.17.10 on 4K ist not that comfortable.

                                      Energy procedia (conference journal) has the requirement of the name on the reference list. this journal has a different rule for initializing of the name.

                                      But I could not find the way to initialize family name not first name.
                                      if there is a menu for it. it will be very helpful.
