Connect Paper to Mendeley and add hashtags logical search

Explorer | Level 3


I'd love it, if there was a Mendeley add-on or something that would allow me to cite on the go in paper. I prefer Mendeley, but I would consider switching citation manager if there were another one available in paperslightly smiling face


I just started using paper to do my research, and the hashtags are a game changer!!!slightly smiling face

If I could continue to writing my articles in paper, that would save so much time!!! And the first thing for that is an efficient citation tool.


As for hashtags, there are three suggestions already made (I votedslightly smiling face that would really really help!

1) autocomplete - to keep standard

2) hashtag list

3) context display when searching for a hashtag (displaying the line or the paragraph - would be amazing!) maybe a scope would also help (like searching only under specific folder or branch or document.


I would add to that the option of searching more than one hashtags. I use hashtags to classify data/ideas, therefore, more in the capacity of tags. Without the option to do logical searches, I will have to keep a classification or some sort of hierarchy for my tags.

For example, at the moment I have to classify ideas concerning architecture and commerce on private and public scales. The hashtags are #StructurePrivate #StructurePublic #CommercePublic #CommercePrivate. It would help a lot to just tag #Public #Commerce instead, and search for both of them appearing together. Or to search for the #Structure or #Commerce apearances in one search.


Thanks so much for this great tool!!slightly smiling face
