Hi,

Usually my bibtex keys look like this

FirstAuthor/SecondAuthor:SomeWordsOfTitle:05

and I use filenames based on these keys for pdf and ps
files. However, I do not want the slashes in the
filename, so I replace them by "_". Attached is a patch
that adds two TextFields to the pattern tab into which
the user can enter a regular expression and a
replacement for this expression. When files are
searched based on the BibTeX key, the replacement is
applied using basefile.replaceAll(,). I think that
could be useful for others, too.

Using the regular expression [:/] and the replacement
"_" works fine for me.

Cheers,
Simon

    The problem seems to still exist in JabRef 2.9. We're currently investigating how to integrate the idea in the current autolink infrastructure.
