    • BUG: Interferences between Mendeley and Word comments

      Everytime I add a reference using the Word plugin, the way comments are shown in the document I am writing change. I usually have them hidden and, as soon as I add a reference, they show in the right side margin.

            • Provide an RPM package of desktop app.

              It would be great to have an .rpm package of mendeley for desktop.
              Many enterprise-level systems handle .rpm packages: RedHat, CentOS (used in labs all over the world), ScientificLinux (predecessor).

              Hence I consider it is important for you to prepare an rpm package.

              Sincerely yours,
              Mr. Evgenii Frolov

                    • Dimming the background light

                      It's simple really. We all know thouse long days staring at the screen for hours, right? So my suggestion is this; make it pussible for mendeley to dim the bacground light of the PDFs so that these late hours aren't as harsh on our eyes. That's it. I know there are many programmes out there to do the same thing for the display in general, however I only want it for Mendeley and note the screen in general. Why only in Mendeley you might ask, well, atleast for me, this is the only programe where I have to continiously stare…

                        • history of AMD in Ophthalmol and Eye diseases than in my nature paper.

                          This is no idea but seeing no reaction on giving feedback I ask my question here. Why does it seem that you do not monitor all my articles indexed in PubMed? I am more interested in citations (if any) of my History of AMD article in Ophthalmology and Eye diseases 2016:8(S1) 1-5 than in a nature paper of mine.
