  • Just a short comment on version 2.9.2 I like JabRef and especially it's auto file link functions combined with the auto generation of BibTeX keys. But after I installed v. 2.9.2 the file synchronization doesn't work anymore and BibTeX keys are generated in capital letters which I can not (or maybe after searching a lot still don't know how to) change. Both a big problem if handling my old databases. Thus I'm a bit disappointed about the new version which I uninstalled and changed back to v. 2.6. where everything is working fine. I liked the new feature of finding unlinked files which is missing in 2.6 though.
