Release Notes for Mendeley Desktop

Download the most recent Mendeley Desktop version

Mendeley Desktop v1.14.1-dev5

Office 2016 support

The Mendeley citation plugin now works with Microsoft Word 2016 for Mac (and Windows, but that worked already), so you can now once again easily generate citations and bibliographies.

Install the Word plugin from the 'Tools' menu in Mendeley Desktop. Once installed, restart Office and find the citation controls in the 'Add-Ins' tab in the ribbon toolbar in Microsoft Word.

Please bear with us on the aesthetics of the ribbon toolbar, we are waiting for Microsoft to make some changes to their ribbon implementation to allow us to achieve a design that looks like the rest of the ribbon, but this currently isn't possible. We are told the changes may be a few months away.

Thanks again for your patience. This is an experimental release, so if you find any bugs or problems, please let us know at
