  1. Please make 'personal notes' visible in full and searchable (as in Legacy).

    One of the main attractions of Legacy was being able to save extensive notes in Personal Notes which could then be read at a later date and searched by word or name using the search box. For example, if I wanted to find everything that contained the term 'Reformation', I could put that into the search and find every thing I had read which discussed that term in some way. The new system no longer allows this kind of search nor does it show anything except the first line of the notes. This is a MAJOR disadvantage and makes Refworks…

  2. Field mapping and labeling - motion picture

    In the Video reference type the labels ‘Studio Location’ and ‘Distributer/Studio’ are used. However, in the Motion Picture reference type, instead of ‘Studio Location’ the label ‘Place of Publication’ is used.

  3. Highlighting OCR'ed pdfs

    Pdfs that are imported from subscription databases are able to be highlighted and notes created. However, pdfs from other sources, like scanned pdfs, smartphone created pdfs, and pdfs from the web, are not able to be highlighted and notes added. It would be nice if pdfs from any source, imported into RefWorks, can be highlighted and notes created in the document.
