I suggest you ...

Remember open tabs and position within PDFs

When closing Mendeley, have the option to remember the current open PDF documents and also the scroll position you're currently at within the PDF. Similar to what Firefox does with open tabs and what PDF viewers when re-opening a PDF doc.

    Please do this! Or allow us to download a reference list of the opened tabs so we can remember where we left off on something we were working on!!!

    I have used all my votes on this suggestion, (over the years).... given the response time and "motivation" behind getting this done... I'll kiss those votes goodbye.

    Can we get a deadline on this?

    Should we say anything more? UNDER REVIEW SINCE 2012!!!! I received an e-mail from Mendeley staff a couple of months ago and this BASIC and EXTREMELY important feature is still not implemented!!! We are in the year of 2015 !!!!!!!!!!!! Come on MENDELEY, help us keep the world moving on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So Mendeley team. Could you please get your finger out your asses and implement this. It would especially be nice since my mendeley has started to be unstable and close unexpectedly several times during the day. that be with 1-5 or 15 articles open at a time.

    I dont understand why something like this (should be easy to store memory locally on user computer) is taking soooooooo long when you in turn can update the program on a weekly basis with stuff i dont give a rats ass about and in my opinion is mainly minor add/fixes...
    oh yeah, and dont forget about all the other good ideas you have under review or development for a couple of years ;)

    It really surprises me that this feature is still missing in Mendeley! It is an essential feature for a reference manager!

    Well thank you for the great software. The funny part, I saw that there are many users have suggested very good, important, and yet simple to implement ideas over the past few years. However, I do not remember that you guys have even bothered to reply or response to their comments. For instance, Ricardo Vidal in July 2009 has suggested to include this "Remember open tabs...", which is required by a number of other users too; but the response came after 3 years and 3 months. Moreover, it is 2015 (over 5 years) and the current version still does not provide this feature.

    Please implement this! That will be greatly helpful for me. At least, a "Recently opened paper" is of great help.
