I just upgraded from Papers3, in which I had thousands of titles formatted correctly for italics (species names), subscript and superscript (chemical notations), and greek symbols (math papers). I need these to be correctly formatted when I insert these references into my manuscripts, which often have 100+ references each. So far, it looks like the new Readcube Papers doesn't support either importing these citations correctly from Papers3 or even getting them formatted correctly once in Readcube Papers. I'm disappointed.
I cannot have my collaborators returning manuscripts with all the gene and species names manually fixed for italicization, for me to reformat the references and lose all their work! Support for formatting in titles is essential.
this is a big problem, I a a microbiologist and all bacterial names must be in italics, I am spending hours editing these when Ive imported references into my word document!
This is still not fixed.
I had thousands of papers formatted correctly (titles with subscript, superscript, and italics) in Papers3. After importing all these references to Readcube papers, the formatting has been scrubbed back to default. This is unacceptable as I'm writing manuscripts and grants with 100+ references each.
This is really basic in so many fields of science, and ReadCube Papers is the first product I have used that does not support it. If this problem has not been fixed by the time my subscription expires, I'll be looking around for something better.
I absolutely agree with this demand. Text formatting in e.g. title are crucial for STEM papers. I need to organise a lot of papers having subscript/superscript or italicised formatting. I would appreciate it very much!
I completely agree. Species names in titles in Zoology and Botany are nothing out of the ordinary and they need to be italicized. Please implement this!
This is essential in my field of physiology
I agree. I write scientific papers which means I have a lot of scientific names which must be in italics. This means in every paper, I have to re-do a huge number of things manually. Additionally, there is no easy way to make a group of letters lowercase. I often get imports that import either names or entire titles in capital letters that I then need to fix by hand slowly and hope I don't make any spelling mistakes. Especially since I cannot see the whole title at once since the text doesn't wrap like it used to in Papers3. Please bring back the editing capabilities for titles and names from Papers3. I lost all of this when I switched and it makes everything so much harder and means I have to re-edit almost every citation once it is formatted.
This is so important. I will never be able to switch completely to Papers from my other citation manager until this problem is fixed. Italics for organism names, superscripts and subscripts for chemical formulas.
Title metadata does not currently maintain subscript/superscript or italicized formatting upon import, so citations inserted with SmartCite are improperly formatted and must be changed manually.
