  1. Automatically convert highlight to note

    Highlighting is now seperated from creating notes. Which means that you have to do the same work twice. First highlighting and next converting that to a note or notes.

    It would be great if mendeley automatically does this. So when you highlight a certain phrase, that mendeley for example takes an adittional sentence before (or few words) and after and converts this to a note.

    This way you automatically have your own overview of an article written in the notes

  2. stopping to make empty promises and implementing good suggestions much faster

    After some time of not using Mendeley I gave it another try today as I am getting serious about writing my PhD thesis. I figured some issues and searched the web for those issues. I was positively surprised that other Mendeley users actually encountered similar problems and thus posted their ideas on this board for suggestions.

    What shocks me though is how OLD these ideas are! Most of them were voted by many other users and were even “under review”. But apparently nothing is happening!

    You want some examples? Here you go:

  3. annotated and highlighted texts are exportable

    provide a feature so that highlighted texts are also exportable or can be shown in one place
    this feature can drastically improve user experience and will put you in front of all the current available softwares.

  6. add double-sided print capabilities

    Add double-sided print capabilities/access to advanced print dialogue to the print option in Mendeley. Printing everything one-sided is not very economical! Thanks!

  7. Android app of Mendeley

    I would love to see an Android app of Mendeley. It would be very easy for android mobile device owners to organize their documents on the go.

  9. Enable File Organizer to organize files so as to match the folder organization the user has already defined in Mendeley Desktop

    Users define the logical organization of their references using Mendeley Desktop folders. It would be nice if the physical organization of downloaded papers on the local hard drive also matched this organization. Currently, File Organizer does not enable you to do this, and instead only organizes files by year, author etc.

  10. Automatically correct capitalization of article titles to meet APA requirements without CSL editor

    Originally there was a post titled "Remove Capitals in Article Title for APA Style". Mendeley admin said they fixed this by giving users difficult instructions to edit the APA style to correct this issue. This is not an adequate fix to this problem, which does not meet the APA 6th edition requirements. Each user should not have to make these changes individually and there are not even instructions in the link provided (http://support.mendeley.com/customer/portal/articles/895771-getting-started-with-the-visual-csl-editor) that specifically show how to make the necessary changes. It has been 18 months and this issue has still not been resolved.

  11. Scharfes s in first author name creates invalid bibtex key

    When the first author's last name contains a "scharfes s" (ß), as for instance in

    Beißert, U., König, M. & Bargstädt, H.-J., 2010. Soft Constraint-based simulation of execution strategies in building engineering. Journal of Simulation, 4(4), pp.222–231. Available at: http://www.palgrave-journals.com/doifinder/10.1057/jos.2010.8 [Accessed September 11, 2013].

    The resulting automatically generated Bibtex key is: "Beißert2010"
    it should be "Beissert2010" or "Beiert2010". Either way is fine, but I cannot cite a Bibtex key containing a ß as it is invalid.

    Thanks
    Max

  12. enable direct export to Mendeley from Google Scholar and EBSCO

    This will increase the notoriety of Mendeley as reference manager and save a lot of time for Mendeley users.

    FYI, currently Google scholar allows direct export to Import into BibTeX Import into EndNote Import into RefMan Import into RefWorks and EBSCO allows Direct Export to RefWorks and EndNote Web and Direct Exports in RIS Format (e.g. CITAVI, EasyBib, EndNote, ProCite, Reference Manager, Zotero).

  13. Make a drop-down abstract option within the list of publications in the central pane

    It is inconvenient to see only 16 lines of the abstract in the right panel upon selecting a publication, and often I would not only like to see the title in the list of publications but the abstract as well. It would be nice if clicking on the entry, or a part of the entry would produce the entire abstract just below the entry within the list.

  14. Help Protect Your Income with Disability Income Insurance

    The possibility of sustaining a long-term disability from an accident or illness is something most of us would rather not contemplate. Axis Capital Group in Jakarta understands this very well. However, there is a way to help protect yourself and your family should you lose your ability to earn an income and to stay away from fraud. Disability income insurance can play a key role in your overall financial plan, and provide a benefit to help replace a portion of your income in the event of a total disability.

  15. Allow sub-folders to be moved to higher-level folders

    I've accidentally moved a folder into another folder (so it has become a sub-folder) and discovered that there is no way of moving it back, short of creating a new top-level folder and copying all of the contents to it. I suggest making it possible to move a sub-folder up a level so it is a main-level folder.

  17. allow readers to toggle between text and reference (this is often possible), and back to the original location in the text within a document

    When I read a document with references, I can often click to link to the reference in the bibliography, but to return to the text I was reading, I have to scroll back and find my place. It would be a lot easier if there were a way to return back to the page/paragraph I was originally reading. In essence, a Control Back command.

  18. Years can not be displayed fully in Win8(high resolution Lenovo Yoga 3200*1800)

    I can not see the years in the library view, especially when I want to sort my papers in year, it seems the high resolution cause this problem, because I can see the years in my desktop with lower resolution.

  19. To readily see if a paper is already been associated to a folder...

    ...would it be possible, when clicking on a paper, to see the folders to which it is associated highlighted in some way??
    It would be very good when one tries to catalog his own files.
    Thank you!

  20. Export for e-book readers

    It's imperative that "someone" manage to export nicely transformed .pdf files to a .EPUB or similar E-book reader format. Who will be the first?!!

    I have a KOBO and some friends of mine have the Kindle, but for the .pdf articles, it's like torching money into flames!

    Please?!

    Daniel
