I name differently the pdf files linked to book and article entries and I keep books and articles in different databases. It would be very convenient to be able to specify different regular expressions for the auto link feature according to the entry type, or, if not possible, depending on the database file one is currently using.

    You aren't naming the PDFs according to the BibTeX key, but different?

    Thanks for following up on my request.

    No, I am not using the Bibtex Key in the PDF file names.

    I name articles as follows:
    Journal_name Year Author1 Author2 volume(number) firstpage-lastpage.PDF

    and the regular expression I use in the options is:

    /.[year] [auth] [auth100_2].[firstpage]-[lastpage]\.[extension]

    However for books I name the PDF files differently.

    Author1 Author2 Year Title ISBN

    So for books I basically setup the links manually.
