      • Import Papers archive with notes and highlights

        I’m trying to move my reference library from Papers to Mendeley. I’ve made a lot of notes and highlights using Papers and I need to move those notes and highlights into Mendeley but I can’t find a way to do so. I think the only way would be for Mendeley to import a Papers Archive since that’s the only way Papers will export notes and highlights. I don’t know if adding this functionality is possible but it’s a necessity for me to start using Mendeley.

        • a preview pane for files

          A preview pane for files (Desktop ver.) next to the contents and details tab would be handy and give users visual feed to find their papers.

                • make it possible to change the default tool from "pan" to "select"

                  When reading a PDF in Mendeley, the default tool that is selected is "Pan." Please add an option to change the default tool to "Select" and "Highlight" as the constant need to click "select" is really frustrating.

                    • hi

                      hi
                      I am confused with the new Mendely interface. I want to search articles archived in various databases like pubmed. when I search by typing a word in search button, i get a lot of entries. like in Pubmed database, is there a way to easily filter by year, article type (like original or review etc), year of publication, etc. I am hoping to see a user friendly filtering option like in Pubmed.

                      • Enable multi-page view

                        Now the screens are getting bigger and bigger. Single page view is a waste of screen area. Two page or multi-page view will improve reading efficiency.

                            In a Chinese Windows system, Mendeley uses the Songti as UI which is very ugly. Many people have been suffering from this problem for many years. Why still not fixed so far? Please fix it.

                                    • Give group functionality more thoughts

                                      The group functionality seems pretty tacked on, Mendeley has the potential to be a great resource for collecting data and sharing it with a group, but this seems stuck under personal space, and adding files to a group seems to copy the data over, taking twice as much space to store the same files? And I can't find any information about how much my group storage space would increase with my personal space.

                                      • Add preference to automatically cite (First Author et.al ...) in papers with multiple authors

                                        In my research community, it is customary to use "Author et.al ..." for any paper that uses more than 2 authors, but Mendeley automatically cites lists of 4 or more authors when they are available. I have to go back and manually rephrase each citation, and then I have to approve it again when Mendeley questions my alteration the next time I cite anything. I understand if some research fields would like all authors included in every citation, but I imagine there are many others that share this custom. Could this feature be incorporated into the preferences?
