After locating some references of interest within JabRef, I often want to attach the PDF files of those references to an email (e.g., to a student or colleague). It would be great if JabRef would help me find those files.
For example, it would be convenient if I could right-click on a reference's PDF attachment icon in the entry table and get an option to "open the file location". Selecting this option would open a new window (e.g., Windows Explorer) with the file highlighted and ready to drag/drop onto the email.
I know nothing about Java, but in case it is helpful I will mention that using FreePascal under Windows, one can get Windows Explorer to open a window with a specific file highlighted (exactly as I am suggesting) using code like this:
S := '/select, "'+FilePathAndName+'"'; // These are string type variables
