Release Notes for Mendeley Desktop v1.16

Download the most recent Mendeley Desktop version

Features and Improvements

Annotation improvements

This release improved the usability of the highlight and sticky note tools in Mendeley Desktop. We’ve rearranged the toolbar in the PDF viewer to match the reading workflow. We moved The least used buttons 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.

The Sticky Note Editor Widget

This version includes a new design for the sticky note bubbles and notes in the right hand panel. The new note design includes who authored the note and allows you to delete a note without needing to right-click on the sticky note icon (although this is still possible). The note window size is now dynamic, resizes based on the content.

BibTeX export fixes:

  • DOI containing underscores will be exported properly.
  • Added missing unicode symbol conversion.
  • Support for iotas.

  • Fixed the problem with HTML tags in document notes breaking note search.
