Mendeley Desktop v1.5.2-dev1

This release fixes several bugs in Mendeley Desktop 1.5

  • Fixed register and login links not working in some places.
  • (Windows) Fixed a possible error when merging citations in text frames in Word.
  • (Windows) Fixed a problem that could cause a crash when selecting text in certain documents when the Word plugin was installed.
  • Fixed a problem that could cause the 'Resolve Conflicts' dialog to appear unnecessarily whilst syncing.

Enabling Internet Explorer / Safari Networking:

This release also adds an experimental option to use Internet Explorer / Safari's networking facilities on Windows and Mac. This fixes a number of issues where Mendeley was unable to connect to the web or load certain content on some institutional networks, or required proxy settings to be entered manually in the Preferences dialog.

To enable it, start Mendeley and press Ctrl+Shift+D (Windows) or Cmd+Shift+D (Mac), go to Settings and change the 'Feature_UsePlatformNetworkLib' hidden setting to 'true', then restart Mendeley. When this is enabled, Mendeley will always use the connection settings from Internet Explorer (on Windows) or setup in System Preferences (on Mac).
