  1. Ignore punctuation in bibliography

    The ordering of titles surrounded by inverted commas is separate to those titles that do not have inverted commas, in a bibliography.
    Is it possible to ignore the inverted commas so that all titles are listed alphabetically, regardless of punctuation?

    I have tried ediing the 'title' field in the Bibliography settings but I don't see any option to ignore punctuation here.

  2. Labels and comments

    Anything in RefWorks is working properly during the last weeks. I am affraid that some relevant research information is missed. This would have to be inconceivable in a tool like this.

  3. Create bibliography from folder (including subfolders)

    If the option currently exists, I've been unable to find it. I have references for a project separated into folders (instead of tagging) under a root folder and would like to create a bibliography including all references within the folder and subfolders at once so they are in the correct order.

  5. Increase the number of allowed subfolders

    Currently allowed 4 subfolders under each main folder. Would like that increase by several more allowed subfolders to better organize large projects or issues.

  7. Assign custom sorting: chronologically, but in 17th ed. Chicago Style-Notes and Bib

    While I want my entries to remain in Chicago Style, sometimes it is helpful to sort chronologically, but in more detail than RW currently allows which is only by year then author. I want to order the list more accurately: Year Ascending; Month Ascending; Day Ascending; Author; Title. I realize I can reorder the fields to begin with the full date, but then they are not in Chicago Style. How can I reorder the citations to be truly chronological (as I will have multiple dates within each year), without changing the Chicago Style order of each field?

  9. Combining citations when article was published in installments, in Chicago Style

    When a journal article is published in installments, over the course of at least two issues, according to Chicago Style, it should appear this way:

    Brown, George C., ed. “A Swedish Traveler in Early Wisconsin: The Observations of Fredrika Bremer.” Pts. 1 and 2. Wisconsin Magazine of History 61 (Summer 1978): 300–318; 62 (Autumn 1978): 41–56.

    Mine turns out like this, even after I edited the “Edition” field so it could have the “Pts. 1 and 2” included:

    McLaughlin, George. "Cincinnati Artists of the Munich School." Pts. 1 and 2. The American Art Review 2, no. 1, 2 (Nov., Dec.…

  10. Citations need to be black

    when copy the references from the bibliography, the references are "dark grey" instead of black. It makes it troublesome to go through all the references by hand, and highlight all the references and change it to black. This is because in some formats, it includes the URL, which should be in "blue". Therefore, it is quite annoying to do so, and quite honestly, defeats the purpose of having a reference manager.

  11. View by Folder

    When looking at all references there is not the option to organize (see) them by folder

  12. European Newsstream My Research - link to New RefWorks

    My Research only works with Legacy RefWorks not New RefWorks. Please can this be changed as it seems daft not to work with the new product?

  13. Small Caps

    Some citation styles require small caps, yet there is no mechanism within RefWorks to generate them. This is problematic.
