  5. 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...

  7. Keep embeddable group widget

    With the 'groups' experience being upgraded, suddenly our group widget embedded on a website shows 'no papers'. Having the widget show our research group's papers is a great feature - not sure if this will still be available after the 'upgrade'. This should definitely be kept functional!

    It would be helpful if we have different ways to mark files. For example instead of one yellow star for favorite files, we can have more colours for this start. Or, allow to colour the file name on the list or its row, something like that.

  9. Textbox Anotations

    It will be nice to have text annotation where we can write on the pdf document in some textbox and the text is clearly visible. For instance, foxit reader has this in the form of Typewriter tool. These types of notes are very useful for example when we chose to print annotated pdfs because the note is not hidden in the sticky note icon.

  10. 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?

  12. Integrate Mendeley with Windows Ink Workspace.

    Apple and Windows OS are moving moving towards hardware and software allowing annotation of files using multiple drawing interfaces. I would love to see Mendeley beat them to the punch with integrated free hand annotation notes utilizing 'Windows Ink Workspace' as a starter.

  13. Save PDF's to SD Card Android

    PDF's get saved to phone/tablet memory and fill up the device. SD cards have lots of space and would allow for other apps to be installed and the phone not to fragment and slow down

  15. Enhance the notes field for pasting text ...

    Please add paste and match style button to Notes field, and/or a remove formatting button. Additional style buttons for the Notes field would also be welcome. I'm on a Mac and the keyboard shortcut for paste and match style doesn't work in your application.

  16. Filter search

    Filters in the search area.
    I get MANY results for seraching for one thing, but it would be nice to filter on book, pdf and so.
    filters should be: type, language, author and so .

  20. Add to favorites (star) on the document details panel!!! (You are closing all such inquiries!)

    Hi, I am Mendeley advisor.
    Just a copy-paste from the previous inquiry with 6 votes (and you also closed many others like "the lack of interest"):
    "You should put a star in the "Document details" section, to make it easier to add a paper to the favourites."
    Mendeley support team should be more open-minded to users!
