Make Mendeley compatible with Scrivener

It would be great if Mendeley worked with Scrivener for writing large bodies of work, like books, dissertations etc. I'm about to start a Ph.D. and thinking I will have to stop using Mendeley and export all my references to a referencing system that is compatible.

    Writing as a skeptic, Scrivener is a significant advance beyond conventional word processors to an ideas processor for creative (including creative technical, this is not an oxymoron!) writing. It goes halfway (for other citation managers) by being able to cope with citation placeholders pasted in but hopefully Mendeley will do what it takes to provide a full inline citation implementation. I'd suggest Mendeley both look at the star ratings it is getting in the Apple App Store (although it is also PC), and download the trial and play with it if not already done so.

    This is such an important issue - I would use Scrivener as my default writing software were it not for the absence of a plugin like this.

    All three votes! This is my only issue with Mendeley, so I hope this is addressed soon. I'm trying not to be discouraged by the fact that this was suggested in 2012.

    Unfortunately I have no votes left to increase the visual counter. However, as a prospective PhD students I am also pledging for this feature. Otherwise I feel that I have to switch back to Zotero.

    I can copy a formatted citation from Mendeley Desktop and paste it in Scrivener, and therefore it is useful for the Bibliography but I can't add it as an inline citation (within the body of the text I am writing). Could you add this please?

    This thread goes back a ways - but the consistency of people wanting this plugin *should* make this a priority. As a PhD student, I want to use both Scrivener and Mendeley for my work!

    I love Mendeley for keeping all my papers organized and easy to find, but I can't use it as a citation manager in scrivener. Huge bummer, since I love writing in scrivener.

    A very....very welcoming addition! Scrivener is perfect in so many ways to write a thesis, but at something as important as citing it is not. A Mendeley integration as available for Word would make a perfect workflow! Now I have to shift to Papers all the time, but I would love to use Mendeley!

    I can copy a formatted citation from Mendeley Desktop and paste it as a bibliography entry in Scrivener, but unfortunately cannot paste it as an inline citation. Please add the feature to allow copying in an inline citation format.

    This would be amazing! Am starting to write my manuscript now and trying to switch from Word to Scrivener. Mendeley integration would mean I would promote these programs among students and other PhDs!
