Release Notes for Papers 3 - version 3.0.23


  • Expanded the functionality of the "Crossref" search option in the Search view and split it into two distinct options. "Crossref DOI" reflects the original functionality and "Crossref Search" which is a new search option.
  • You can now add a paper to your library by matching a reference from another paper, using the File -> New Paper -> From Reference... option.


  • Fixed an issue that could cause the application to crash during background synching of the library.
  • Fixed one major cause of database corruption issues.
  • Fixed an issue that was one source of hanging/slowness when closing the application, or when using citations.
  • Improvements to application startup time with large libraries containing several different keyword and collection combinations across the library.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause performance degradation due to excessive reloading of user collections when adding new results.


  • Changed the option in the Help->Troubleshooting menu from "Verify Papers Database" to "Repair Library" to more accurately describe what is happening behind the scenes.
  • When launching in Maintenance Mode, within the Library Selection pop-up, the "Verify Library" button has been changed to "Repair Library" to more accurately describe what is happening behind the scenes.
  • Fixed an issue where files that where not PDFs would not be attached to their newly-created library item records when importing into a library (either via the drag-and-drop interface or via File -> Import menu).
  • Fixed an issue where paper titles would sometimes not be consistent when first importing a paper to your library.
  • Fixed an issue where paper titles would sometimes disappear or become inconsistent when switching between different views.
  • Fixed an issue where adding or deleting an author on an item in your library using the Info inspector would sometimes cause the Suggested Publications pop-up to appear on top of the Author List view.
  • Fixed an issue where assigning a library item as "No color" when it previously had a color flag assigned was not reflected by it being listed in the "No color" section of the Labels view.
