  1. Fix scaling to high resolution screens!

    Almost unusable on any modern high resolution monitor that almost every other application and modern OS can accommodate. Need better scaling on higher resolution devices. Years don't fully display. The notes box is fixed in size and displays very small (unreadable) font.

    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.

  4. CSV Export - Bibliometrics - Meta-Analysis

    Mendeley should support exporting to facilitate bibliometrics and literature review analysis.

    If we need other reference manager like Jabref why don't we use direct it?

    I'm requesting this because I've developed a method called SystematicSearchFlow to make Literature research with meta-analysis and bibliometrics, and the exporting data in CSV to a spread sheet is fundamental to make the analysis and synthesis.

    Also I've developed a guide to do so with EndNote:
    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/266383560_Systematic_Review_and_Bibliometrics_A_Step-by-step_Guide_Using_the_EndNoteR_tool

    I'm creating one guide to Mendeley and this functionality is one of the futures that is missing and could boost Mendeley use.

    Hello Mendeley Developers! Please make a…

  6. Citiation Hover-Over

    Often when reading a paper, I want to know the title, etc of a citation as I am reading. When these are hyperlinked, I can click, but it shoots me down to the end of the paper and I have to manually scroll back and find where I was... it would be awesome if when I click a citation, a little box would pop up and display the info.

  7. to integrate Mendeley with Google Drive and Dropbox

    I use Google Drive and Dropbox to store my files online and sync between devices, however Mendeley does not recognize that the PDF files in a Dropbox or Google Drive folder are the same in multiple devices. It would be great if it was smart enough to see that there are synchronized folders and allow the automatic insertion of new PDFs in thoses folders associated with specific folders in Mendeley`s "My Library".
    For example, right now I'm writing a project and the PDFs are stored in a GDrive folder named "PDJ Project". This folder is synced between my personal laptop…

  8. Add a plugin for mac pages, this is a must need for 2015.

    A comment was posted from admin in 2012 that Mendele was looking into a plugin for mac pages, but years later still nothing? Is there anything in the works because if not, I'll go elsewhere for reference management (Papers works on pages), if so please say so so I can sit tight a little while longer.

  10. Save the open tabs

    I think it would be great if Mendeley allows to save the open tabs, so next time I open Mendeley, it will open as it was the last time I used it (as in Chrome browser). Thanks

  11. 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.

  12. Make the desktop PC program touch screen-friendly!

    Please add the ability to pinch to zoom and pan/scroll using the touchscreen in the desktop version. This is especially needed to enhance the ability to read PDFs if in Tablet mode on a 2-in-1 but would also make it easier to use the Library screen in tablet mode. Touch-screen Windows devices are here to stay so please bring this program up to date with the technology.

  13. search annotations

    It would be great if annotations could be included in the search function.
    Maybe the search function can be expanded, being able to check and uncheck certain search targets as:
    - document details (Auther, year ect.)
    - annotations
    - whole text
    - text marked
    (just some ideas)

  14. Generate bibliography from Mendeley folder

    I would like to be able to export an entire folder as a bibliography. Sometimes you just need a list of references to give to a student, but you don't need to write-up a whole paper with in-text citations. It would be really nice to be able to generate a bibliography from just a Mendeley Folder!!

  15. Plug-in for Powerpoint

    A plug-in for inserting citations in Powerpoint has been requested multiple times on here. The highest voted one previously is from 2013 and has been sitting in "Under Review" forever.
    Any luck we might see a plug-in for this feature? It would help tremendously with making presentations and definitely has the support of many users.

  16. Additional reference types

    Additional reference types would help, including podcasts, videos, book reviews. They could either be hard-coded or for increased flexibility added by user.

  19. To generate documents with the comments and highlights of the PDF, as some kind of reports. It will be very useful

    Include an option to generate documents with the comments and highlights of the PDF, as some kind of reports that compile them. It will be very useful for people writing papers.
