Mendeley has support for djvu/ps/txt/odt by manualy add but we need support like for PDF:
1. Create notes and highlighting.
2. View djvu/ps/chm by internal viewer.
Thanks a lot.
We are aware of this request, however, as we are just a small team we are working on many exciting new features to improve Mendeley. Our Development Team are aware of this request, but you can view such documents in the native viewer at this time.

I think djvu is not searchable unless a brute-force OCR is conducted.
djvu for books !
the mendeley tool to seek within all pdfs is so cool *, it would be amazing to do the same with books in djvu !

Please add DjVu.
Djvu and docx is really need.
Seconding djvu reader incorporation.
I agree, pdf is useless for large scanned documents, full djvu support would be amazing.
I would also like to request djvu support as this is becoming popular and is a very efficient way to store larger files.
djvu support is urgently needed!
Multiple backends supporting is urged since many of my books are in djvu format.
Please add djvu, all my books are in this format-without djvu support, mendeley is useless for me.
Linux document readers like Okular and Evince (both open source) support most of these documents. Okular supports multiple backends (like ghostview) and annotating (saved in seperate files) too. If Mendelay could look at Okulas, since it is QT4-based. If it could emulate that feature set in it's document reader, then we could annotate different formats :)
Support to many document formats would be really useful. Actually I don't know a unique document reader that supports all these formats. Also, I would like to suggest support to doc/docx.
I second the request for supporting djvu files.

I've been trying to figure out how to incorporate my reading notes from physical books and journals (not just PDFs) into this workflow to centralize all my research on a project and it seems like this request is the closest to what I am looking for. I think .doc files should be included in the list, since they require opening in an external editor. If anyone has ideas how to do what I am asking with the current features, please let me know. Thanks!
Watch a folder for djvu files. For me it is enough. :)
I think djvu files are the most important out of this list. They save heaps of space over a PDF and are much more suitable for scanned documents, which means a lot of older journal articles.
If only they could just embed Okular in Mendeley, that would make it so much better...
And please add .dvi to that!
Yeah, that would be kewl. At least internal djvu viewer should be provided.

It could even be a useful option if we were able to watcha folder by filetypes.. that can be very handy when importing a lot of files
