"Locate PDF" in Desktop App

What is Locate PDF? If you are coming from Papers 3 or the old ReadCube desktop app "Locate PDF" is the new way to grab PDF's that you have access to without having go online and find them yourself. The Locate PDF button is our way to help streamline you getting the PDF's you need into your library. Want to try it out?

Head over to ReadCube Papers Web App and make sure to have our browser extension installed: Chrome Web Store. While our web extension works on all of your favorite publisher websites it also allows you to grab PDF's that you don't have in your library if they are open access. Check it out in action below!

This will be part of the desktop app with our next update so you won't need to go to the web app to find those missing PDFs!
