  1. Third box for filling in author's names

    It would be a good idea to divide authors' names in three parts instead of two: for instance, Dutch authors often have insertions in their names: given name, insertion(s), last name. Insertions can be for instance "van", "de" or "van de", causing authors, as it is now, to be found under the V or D of the insertions instead of under the first letter of their last name. A solution could be a third or middle box, in which insertions can be filled in. That could also be used by people who want to use their middle name: alphabetizing for…

      • Plugin implementation for Google docs online

        Just finishing my graduate studies and my classmates and I all use Google docs to write our papers/theses because it is online, never to be lost, always to be found. I personally only use MS Word to do the formatting at the end. Would be great to have this implemented as a google plugin/extension for example.

                      • Keep Mendeley on screen when inserting in text citation in word

                        Disappearing application means that you can't see the article you're citing when searching in the pop up box in Word. Was OK in previous versions...this is a stepback!

                          We would like Mendeley MS Word PlugIn to be able to link between the in-text reference and the full citation inside the bibliography. This would work like MSWord Cross Reference option. I would be really useful when reading large documents.

                              When I follow a link to a reference in the bibliography there is no way for me to go back. Adding a "back" button would be great. This is a functionality that is present in every PDF (and other formats that allow cross-referencing) reader I have ever used.

                                    • Add "note" field to BibTex export

                                      The "note" field is a requirement in e.g. unpublished items in the BibTex reference list and the only way to add further info to e.g. web page items in the reference list (depending on the choice of latex bibliography package). This field is absolutely crucial and will give flexibility where Mendeley does not fully support export for external software such as Latex. The origin of this request is many years old, and I wonder why such rather simple addition has not been done: https://mendeley.uservoice.com/forums/4941-general/suggestions/615409-bibtex-export-missing-required-field-note-in-un
