Hi,

It'd be great if pybliographer could have a "default"
database option in the preferences menu or, as an
alternative, that would remember the last opened one.

I think a lot of people (including me) have a single
database, so there's no need to open the same one every
time.

Thanks a lot!

    The environment variable 'PYBLIOGRAPHER_DATABASE' serves for
    this purpose! See the documentation at
    http://arch.pybliographer.org/documentation/how-to-start.html.

    Alternatively, you can use the menu File -> Recent documents
    for opening the last few databases you have used before.

    Are these options something like you want?

    Hi Kota,

    Right now, I've dealt with this in a similar manner as you
    describe, that is, the desktop icon I use exectues
    "pybliographic mydatabase.bib"... but I think a better
    solution would be to have this implemented as an option in
    the GUI. I think for many users the enviromental variable
    solution is a bit obscure.

    The "recent documents" option is useful, but if you only use
    1 database all the time, having to go there every time you
    open the application is not ideal.

    Thanks a lot!
