        • Create a way to skip sections with page markers/Tabs

          Need a way to group sections. Best idea is to be able to right click on the scroller within the bar and say create tab/Marker and then when you re-open the document you can go straight to that page within the document. Also allows to break sections up if those tabs have titles. Much quicker especially with E-Books or journals within reviews.

          • bigger note box

            Could you please make the notes section next to documents bigger or at least adjustable? The space below it is now just empty and not useful for anything.

            • cocoa style tab on mac request

              In update 1.17.7 version, tab style in mendeley desktop for mac is much better, but when 1.17.8 comes, tab style returns to the old grey and unaligned one. So why not make tab style a native cocoa style? Thank you.

              • word size in mendeley should be able to adjust as one’s like

                Currently mendeley desktop version of the font is too small. In order to facilitate viewing, so I recommend the desktop version of the font and font size adjustable.

                    • Modify the Attach files dialog to allow the filtering of *.xlsx, not only *.xls

                      When one clicks on Add File... in the Document Details pane, the Attach files dialog is opened, which contains a standard number of file filters. The Word document filter has been updated to (*.doc *.docx) but the Excel filter is still only (*.xls) instead of (*.xls *.xlsx), even though a decade has passed since *.xlsx was introduced.
                      This should be a single line of code to adjust, so should not have to go through a long cycle of Review->Planned->Implemented to eventually get implemented.

                      • Put an option to change the Background (or theme) of the app. Some of us prefer darker backgrounds or themes.

                        In some apps, there are options to change the backgrounds or themes of the app. For me, it keeps me excited about using the app, instead of opening an app and seeing the same "boring" look every time. In some apps, parts of the background of the entire app can be changed, while in others, the entire background or theme can be changed.

                        • Add more document types

                          Sometimes I have to be very creative with how I use the document types, because the type I need is not on the drop-down list for adding entries manually.
                          For instance, right now I am writing my thesis on online culture and have references to posts on social media like Twitter. If I choose "Web Page" I cannot add the name of the media (Twitter) and if I choose "Generic" I cannot enter data accessed.

                          Perhaps add more types or make it possible to add field when neccessary, e.g. to the "generic"

                                      • Save reference to a new folder

                                        When importing references through the "bookmarklet" or "quick import" feature, there is an option to select to which folder the reference will be saved.

                                        It would be very handy to have an option here to create a new folder (or subfolder) on-the-fly, while adding that same reference to it.
