Mendeley Desktop v1.16-dev1

Annotation improvements

This release aims to improve the usability of the highlight and sticky note tools in Mendeley Desktop. We’ve simplified the toolbar in the PDF viewer and moved the lesser used features to the Edit menu (Rotate page, and copy/paste).

Select text is now the default tool, and the way each tool interacts with each other is now much more intuitive. Selecting text and then clicking on the ‘Highlight’ tool in the toolbar will now create a new highlight.

There are more changes coming to the annotation tools soon, stay tuned.

Bug fixes

  • The word plugin will now still work when opening multiple word 2011 windows.
  • The word plugin will not cause any issue when opening a protected word file.
