I often want to quickly copy a simple formatted version of a bibliography entry into an email or letter. The entry preview would be fine in most cases. I can select the entry, and even copy to the clipboard with ctrl+C. But why can't I do this more formally with a popup menu choice, like the tooltip for printing?

Thanks for a superb tool!

    As workaround, JabRef 2.9 supports drag'n'drop of selected text of the preview to another application.

     
  • Thanks! That's a major help.
