Download the most recent Mendeley Desktop version

Mendeley Desktop v1.17.9


We have made some fixes and enhancements to give you a better experience with the annotations tool.

  • You can now select a highlight regardless of which tool is active and once you have selected your highlight the context menu will now be shown.
  • If you are editing a note, when you close that note the active tool will no longer change.
  • Deselecting a note you have added to a highlight takes you back to the full text.


A new help button has been added to the toolbar to make it easier for you to find all you need to guide you through Mendeley Desktop.

Bug Fixes

  • Mac users with Microsoft Word 2011 installed can now install the Citation Plug In without getting a compilation error.
  • If you have Airwatch installed and still experiencing Citation Plug In issues then please contact Support who will guide you through a fix.
  • On high DPI screens, if you use a zoom factor of 150% or more, the "added" column of the document view will display in full
