  1. I'd like to move the articles to some groups when I am reading them.

    It's better to have the button to do that at article panel than go back to My library panel and move.

    • Respect user folder structure, complementary to Mendeley groups folder structure

      It should be possible to maintain your folder structure in memory, at least for when you sync your mendeley library from a new computer. It is not nice that all your papers are downloaded without a precise folder structure, this makes impossible to navigate in the folders yourself.
      This means I have to use a usb key to import all my library organized before using mendeley, kind of annoying..

      I understand that the point of Mendeley is to use tags, but then a double structure should be remembered:
      1. the folder structure of the user
      2. the folder structure of…

        • Order citations within brackets by year

          A simple option for order citation: by year, by alphabetical order or by selection order inside the brackets will be very useful. I have seen several of these suggestions closed due to "lack of interest" but there are more than hundreds or related requests...

                • no brackets or choice of brackets

                  it would be nice to either select "no brackets" or a choice of brackets around references. They all automatically come in with brackets and either changing or removing the ones that come in wastes a lot of time especially when writing a very long document.

                  • Graphic card

                    Run Mendeley on the integrated graphic card on Mac OSX

                    Every time I start Mendeley on my MacBook Pro, it switches from the internal graphic card to the external one, thus reducing my battery life.
                    Would it be possible to fix that?

                      • Mendeley/Elsevier brand E-reader w/e-ink tech.?

                        Mendeley is a great document organizer and we use it very effectively with my research team. On the other hand it is so bad for eyes to read all the documents on tablets or computers.

                        In my opinion it would be just great if Mendeley/Elsevier will make a high quality 8 inch e-reader with an e-ink technology that works great with the Mendeley app.

                        Or may be Elsevier can cooperate with other high quality e-reader makers to incorporate Mendeley app as a built-in app.

                        • Remember "opened files last time"

                          When opening Mendeley, I hope it can open files which were unclosed last time.
                          Even though a function "Recently Read" exists, I found it's not very convenient and sometimes not work accurately.
                          Thanks.

                                      • RECOVER THE OPTIONS OF THE NOTES

                                        In the previous version of Mendeley, the notes that were made to the PDFs were listed ordinally allowing quickly to visualize the amount and also contained the number of the page from where it was obtained and in which a single click automatically took us to the page showing the paragraph. This should not be removed in the new version because it limits the speed for citation among several authors. PLEASE ADD THESE OPTIONS AGAIN IN THE NOTES
