In Jabref 2.10, the [authshort] bibtex key does not produce a key with the first authors last name, followed by initials of other others (as described in the help). Instead, it produces one with only the last name initials of the authors.

    Do you know whether it worked at JabRef 2.9?

      No, I never tried it. But it looks handy now!

    The description as in the help:

    [authshort]: The last name if one author is given; the first character of up to three authors' last names if more than one author is given. A plus character is added, if there are more than three authors.

    So, it is the expected behavior. If you have more that one author, it will generate the key with the first character of authors' last names...
