    On the new Group page I am missing the Invite people to join button. That was much more obvious on the old page! Could you add one?Thanks

    • Better UI to show/hide document details

      The very narrow tab to show and hide document details is incredibly frustrating to use. A better interface would be welcome.

      (I know about the Alt-Return keyboard shortcut but I can never remember it!)

        • Include Federal Register Notices as a reference type

          It would be great if you could select "federal register notice" as a reference type. While there are already existing reference types for statutes, bills, and hearings, federal register notices and their associated proposed rules have their own unique idiosyncrasies and formats for citation.

          These references also need to be treated separately from statutory language, as often these regulations may be proposed but not finalized. Because finalizing a rule can take years (or may not happen at all), there may be many years before the regulation proposed in the federal register can be cited as a statute. This time between…

          • 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.

            • Something like the speak text feature I can use within Adobe Reader on my MacBook to work within Mendeley.

              It would be very useful to have my computer read the text to me while I read along or take notes in the details section.

              • Please disable (or give provide an option to disable) automatic name capitalization during BibTeX syncing

                I see below that you declined this request. Many e.g. Dutch surnames start with a lower case letter, and it is definitely error if one capitalizes it. Organization names that deliberately start with a lower case letter are another example.

                • Scriviner and integration

                  Hi Mendeley Team,
                  Are you collaborating with Scriviner? I see more and more comments in the internet from academics and students who use both software and are in great need of the integration of these two software. Both are very good in its own category, but need to be used together. Kind regards Eva

                    • Adding Touch Bar support for new Macbook Pro

                      Touch bar has potential to be used by Mendeley users on Macbook pro's. I would love to see and use this feature for browsing between open tabs or selecting things to highlight.

                        It would be useful to be able to drag highlighted rectangles anywhere on the page, as well as copy/paste them. Is it possible to add this feature sometime soon? I am analyzing/annotating musical scores.

                        • It would be useful if modifications like existing italics are retained when you modify a title.

                          It's simple: Mendeley should maintain italics and other modifications when I edit different fields for the bibliography -- every time I go to edit the title of something with italics, it removes the italics unless I add the <i>text</i> inputs.

                            • Option to switch user in the 'chrome' extension

                              We're alot of people in the lab on the same computers, and the chrome extension works perfectly except there is no way to quickly log out and switch user. if you can log in multiple users or log out without having to go to the website it would be really nice.

                                  1- I think mendely should link with any translator for example google or any online one or any software which special for mendeley.
                                  2- I did not see any statistics about the amount of articles in any folder or all the documents in mendeley library.
                                  3- I would like to see alarm for any duplicates in single folder and if any other folder.

                                  • Some way to find parts in documents marked for citation

                                    The only way I can think of right now is to make annotations with the text "cite" every time and then look into the Note tab in the Document Details of every document. But as I like to highlight stuff I want to cite, this does not help right now (you can only see annotations, not highlighted parts of a text there). In case someone knows a less tedious way, feel free to tell me

                                    • Citing Institutional Databases

                                      The APA style recommends citing databases with "Author" (or Institution), "Name" and "Retrieved from" fields. It would be great to add a new type of document in the option "Add entry manually". Using institutional databases the Author option does not work well because by default if the name of the institution has two words, the reference is produced as Last name, First name.
