Please consider adding an option in BibDesk preferences to change the behaviour when I double-click on a publication in the publication list.
Double-clicking on the publication brings up the "Get Info" dialog.
Double-clicking on the publication name should open the publication's PDF. (Currently, to open the PDF, I have to double-click in the Preview pane.)
1. The proposed behaviour would match that of iTunes, which BibDesk closely resembles. In iTunes, one double-clicks on a song title to play it; its "Get Info" box is available from a right-click menu.
2. It is far more common to *read* entries in a bibliography than to *edit* them, so the action required to read an entry should be minimal. It is easier and more intuitive to open a publication for reading by double-clicking on its name, than by single-clicking on its name and then double-clicking on its PDF in the Preview pane.
Thank you very much for creating and maintaining this wonderful software.
