  1. Full-Screen toolbar is gone after v. 1.17.7 - why???

    Why did you erase the full-screen toolbar in v. 1.17.7? It's impossible to work this way. Horrible update, please change it back.

    • When I cite references using Mendeley, the Mendeley window will disappear. Could you make it not disappear?

      • Animal behaviour citing style

        Greetings,
        I have dowloaded a reference style for a journal: Animal behaviour and when I tried to aply it the references seemed off. For example for the reference with multiple authors int he text appeared a citation with three or four names and et al. after e.g., (Blakeslee, Ruhl, Currie, & McRobert, 2009), instead of one name and et al., Blakeslee et al., 2009.
        How can I fix this? is it just me or is it a commom matter? or can you cerommend another style that I can apply and would look the same?
        Thank you very much for answer

            • Add urldate to article entries in BibTeX export

              At present if the 'Date Accessed' entry is filled in a journal entry, it's still not included in the generated library.bib file. For journals retrieved online it's not uncommon to require the date accesed to be listed in the citation so there's no reason not to include it to allow users to have the choice (based on selected style file in latex). Right now this requires manually editing the bib file each time it's regenerated for every entry.

              • ABNT (Brazilian) citation with different pattern in the same document.

                One kind of ABNT citation rule allow the user to cite a reference in the beginning of the phrase or in the end of phrase. In both cases the format of citation are different. Would be very interesting if it's possible because it's very common to mix this two different ways in the same text.

                  • Unlimited Space

                    Hi,
                    ı have bought space as unlimited ($165). But when I open my account, it is not unlimited. It says "100 GB Personal Web Space". Why do you say unlimited? I bought it for my 150GB library. So I cannot use it. I would like to refund it.
                    Thank you.

                      • Search for metadata using DOI in Android app

                        I find the Android app very useful. However, it lacks a killer
                        feature of the standard desktop program (i.e. on macOS) -- at least
                        for me. I miss the ability to automatically fetch metadata using the
                        DOI string. There is a small icon next to the DOI, but instead of
                        searching for metadata, it merely opens the corresponding DOI URL.
                        Would you consider adding the ability to search for metadata using
                        DOI, please?

                          • Please add a key for writing in Italics

                            Formatting the names of the papers is hard, the names of the bacteria for example are really hard to format to Italics and now they appear in the reference list in normal font. I noticed there is a way to make Italics, but I couldn't make it work (there's no end-command for it?).

                              • include clickable citations

                                It would be extremely helpful to researchers all across the world if clickable citations were introduced.

                                A click on the citation in body of the research paper should directly go to the corresponding portion of the bibliography. Maybe it could be highlighted with a color. This would allow quick, efficient and error-free viewing and editing of citations. Hope this idea will be considered. Thank you.

                                        2. Uninstalling, deleting data and reinstalling

                                        4. Running as administrator

                                        And even contact the support team, no luck, they said they moved my ticket to a higher support level, and then nothing.

                                        Any advice would be much appreciated.

                                        • Add a plugin for mac pages, this is a must need for 2015.

                                          A comment was posted from admin in 2012 that Mendele was looking into a plugin for mac pages, but years later still nothing? Is there anything in the works because if not, I'll go elsewhere for reference management (Papers works on pages), if so please say so so I can sit tight a little while longer.
