  1. Adapting Mendeley desktop app for 4K Screens

    Mendeley desktop currently does not work well with 4K screens; even with ratio scaling, the program runs too small to be usable. Either allow the program to scale properly, or make a higher resolution version.

      • Mendeley cannot reconnect to the internet after sleep and change in wifi

        Occasionally, despite having internet Mendeley cannot sync with the server stating that there is no internet connection. This usually happens after my laptop is in the sleep state. I also change the wifi network occasionally (home/work).

        "There was a problem connecting to mendeley.com to sync your library: Network access is disabled."

        There is no clear pattern as to how this begins, because very often it works just fine. Once broke I have to restart mendeley to reconnect to the internet.

        Will be happy to provide logs if you tell me where they are.

            • Textbox Anotations

              It will be nice to have text annotation where we can write on the pdf document in some textbox and the text is clearly visible. For instance, foxit reader has this in the form of Typewriter tool. These types of notes are very useful for example when we chose to print annotated pdfs because the note is not hidden in the sticky note icon.

              • Keep embeddable group widget

                With the 'groups' experience being upgraded, suddenly our group widget embedded on a website shows 'no papers'. Having the widget show our research group's papers is a great feature - not sure if this will still be available after the 'upgrade'. This should definitely be kept functional!

                    It would be helpful if we have different ways to mark files. For example instead of one yellow star for favorite files, we can have more colours for this start. Or, allow to colour the file name on the list or its row, something like that.

                        • Develop a Mendeley iOS Word plugin to insert references

                          Word on iOS is getting much better to work with with the new iPad pro as it can synchronize with Dropbox and keep working on the same document with different workstations, unfortunately, there is no way to add mendeley references in iOS Word, similar to the one for PC/Mac OS.

                          • Make Firefox extension multiprocess-compatible and convert it to webextension

                            Recent versions of Firefox gradually enable new multiprocess engine
                            https://wiki.mozilla.org/Electrolysis
                            The new engine deprecates non-multiprocess-compatible extensions and issues warnings and soon non-compatible extensions will be disabled completely.

                            Additionally, Firefox gradually moves towards webextensions, similar to those on Chome and old extensions will be disabled since firefox 57 (in November 2017).
                            https://wiki.mozilla.org/RapidRelease/Calendar

                            Currently, Mendeley extension is both non-multiprocess-compatible and non-webextension.

                            Firefox 57 Nightly already provides around an order of magnitude speedup and memory economy, so I guess the choice between upgrading Firefox and keeping Mendeley will not be in Mendeley's favor.

                            Please consider updating the extension, so users wouldn't lose this…

                                • Organize search results

                                  When looking for a paper with the author names (but without specifying "Author:"), papers that the author has written are not usually the first that come in the list. I haven't figured out how that list is organized but most often articles that contain this author's name as a citation are the first to appear in the list. It feels like it could be a useful feature to have the papers the author has written come first in the search results, before any other.

                                  • Title subscript and superscript

                                    There needs to be an easy way to include subscripts and superscripts references, particularly titles. It is unacceptable that there is not a button or some easy method. Typing in the html is much too cumbersome if many documents need to be updated. Furthermore, the web-importer needs to be able to correctly import fonts like sub- and super-script.
                                    I will leave Mendeley if this is not fixed.

                                      • Integrate Mendeley with Windows Ink Workspace.

                                        Apple and Windows OS are moving moving towards hardware and software allowing annotation of files using multiple drawing interfaces. I would love to see Mendeley beat them to the punch with integrated free hand annotation notes utilizing 'Windows Ink Workspace' as a starter.

                                          I get MANY results for seraching for one thing, but it would be nice to filter on book, pdf and so.
                                          filters should be: type, language, author and so .
