Release Notes for Papers 3 - version 3.2.2 (149) beta

New Features:

  • Freehand annotations that were added using Papers 3 for iOS are now synched and displayed on Papers 3 for Mac! (Freehand annotation editing on Papers 3 for Mac will be added in a future update).
  • Dragging one or more papers from your library into a note annotation will now add the citekey references to that note.
  • Scripting API: It's now possible to set a publication's authors or editors via a string of person names:
tell application "Papers"
    set selectedPapers to selected publications of front library window
    set author names of first item of selectedPapers to "Griekspoor, A.C.; Neefjes, J.J.; Groothuis, T.A.M."
end tell
  • Adds support for exporting PMCIDs during a BibTeX export operation.

Performance & Stability Improvements:

  • Addresses several causes of crashes when using OS X 10.10 Yosemite Developer Preview and Beta releases (specifically when viewing PDFs, and a crash on launch in DP6).
  • Citations can now be inserted into supported apps when using OS X 10.10 Yosemite Developer Preview and Beta releases.
  • The Citations on/off switch in the preferences panel is now labelled correctly when running the app on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
  • Addresses an issue that could occur when tokenizing keywords in the Federated Search when running the app on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
  • Further performance & stability improvements to the new patch-based syncing engine.
  • Addresses a crash that could occur when interacting with collections in the sidebar.
  • Addresses a rare crash that could occur if a items in a Papers Online collection had missing keywords.
  • Addresses a bug which meant some common document identifiers (PMID, DOI, arXiv ID, ISBN) were not automatically detected when using the Federated Search.
  • Fixed an issue where Papers couldn't split a string of multiple author names by the semicolon character.
  • Fixed an issue where if the "Suggested matches" popover was dismissed without matching, outdated results would be displayed the next time the popover was used with a different paper.
  • Addresses a rare bug that causes the library to collapse to a very small window.
  • Re-enables metadata parsing in the Preview frame.

Known Issues

  • When running on OS X 10.10 Developer Preview 6 or later, automatically scrolling to a specific annotation on a paper using the sidebar inspector will instead scroll to the top of the page that the annotation is on (manually scrolling to annotations is still possible as a workaround).
