  1. Allow for the coice of font and size of font in the settings. I have to change font and size each time I copy & paste.

    Instead of having to change the font and size each time I import a reference, it would be helpful if we could set this within RefWorks.

    I'd like to be able to archive the infrequently used folders. So that the list does not occupy so much. it would be something similar to what we do in outlock "archived folders".

    This idea will be considered for future development.
    As of the June release, alphabetical sorting of folders is supported; you can add Z or ZZ to the start of these folders’ names and sort alphabetically so that they will be at the bottom of the list.

  3. How about making Write'n'Cite work?

    It has stopped working. It sometimes appears to let me log on but no references are recognized.

  4. RefWorks style을 학회 사이트에서 직접 다운받을 수 있도록 해주세요

    많은 저널에서 제공하는 저자 투고정보에서는 EndNote 투고스타일을 제공하고 있고 심지어는 Elsevier 에 소속된 저널에서는 Mendeley까지 제공하고 있습니다. RefWorks 스타일은 사서가 일일이 만들어 제공해야 하는데 매우 불편하고 시간이 소요되고 있습니다. 이를 해결할 방법은 있는지요? 계속 이렇게 사서가 만들어 제공해야 한다면 지금까지 사용을 유도하기 위하여 힘든 기간을 거쳐왔지만 스타일이 제공되는 다른 Tool을 안내해야 하는 것이 아닌가 하는 생각이 많아지고 있습니다. 이를 해결해주시기 바랍니다.

  5. try to generate a performance: function FIND ( phrases, words, collors, field codes...)

    The idea is to find all you need by using an pertinent function FIND which works with all formats.

  7. Enable users to remove an attachment (PDF or other) from a record. When an attachment is added in error, this is a problem.

    Enable users to remove an attachment (PDF or other) from a record. When an attachment is added in error, this is a problem, and the user's only recourse if to delete the record and start over.

  8. A new reference type for standards

    Could you create a new reference type for standards? There isn't a ready-made option for this. It seems that it isn't possible to rename existing reference types.

  9. RefWorks API documentation

    We urgently need to see the API documentation for ProQuest RefWorks so that we can create our own export function for our library catalogue (Koha).

    The 'Save to RefWorks' button does not work for Koha so we have no option other than to create our own embedded export feature. Our developers cannot do this without the API documentation.

  10. Remove shared folder access codes

    We've noticed that when a user shares a folder, the link that the recipient receives generates a screen that asks for an access code if they are not already logged into RefWorks.

    We can see that there is a login link in the top banner but most of our users will miss this.

    Is it possible to have the usual login options (e-mail address and institutional login) in the main screen?

    We've also noticed that, once you do login, it takes a little while for the shared folder to appear in the menu section on the left and once it…

  12. Search option for document in google doc tool by Ref ID

    In word tool as well as in google doc tool if I want to cite the reference using Ref ID search (which is good new idea) but not able to do it. So not useful due to this limitation.

  14. WAYFless URL to access RefWorks 3 directly without using login page.

    We would need a WAYFless URL to RefWorks 3. In our workflows users want to go directly to RefWorks 3 from within other applications. The route to go to the login page is not needed with a WAYFLess URL. Haveing requested this already three years ago nothing seems to have happened. Frustrating.

  16. Replace interstitial page with login page that directs users to Legacy or New depending on credentials

    The interstitial page confuses our students because if they are new to RefWorks, they have no idea which option to choose. If you could replace the interstitial page with a log in page - that includes the option to create an account (this would go to New RefWorks) - everyone would be so much happier.

  17. Problem with deleting records

    I'm trying to delete some items from RW but can't do so. The delete option is greyed out.
    In other cases it's not.
    Have not heard back with a solution to this yet.

  18. Citation Style Editor: customize fields more

    In an output-style the field Publish year (date) is listed twice in one reference type. Behind the Short title and behind Place of Publication. The first time it is mentioned, it should end with a parenthesis. The second time not. But it is not possible to define different settings. I think it should be possible to differ. My suggestion is: It should be possible to choose a field, make a copy and give it a new name, for example "Publication date with parenthesis". Then I can edit the field independent from the other field "Publication date".

  19. Option to add to the field "short title" to the bibliography, citations and footnotes

    In the citation style editor I am not able to add the field "short title" to my bibliography, citations or footnotes. Only the reference type Generic contains the field short title.
    But for some citation styles it is required.
