Google Scholar includes non-ASCII characters in the citekey of its BibTeX if the first author has a non-ASCII letter in his/her name (for example pöltz1999environment). This is not recognized by BibDesk when pasted with Alt+Cmd+L. It would be better if this was recognized, and the the citekey automatically changed to poltz1999environment. (For reference, when creating a new publication and typing Environment in the title field, 1999 in the year field and Alexander Pöltz in the name field, this is exactly the citekey that BibDesk automatically generates).
