Easily migrate your Papers 3 library into ReadCube Papers while retaining all of your annotations and organization from your current Papers 3 library. You can view our video tutorial or our step by step guide.
Before you get started:
You'll need to download the ReadCube Papers desktop app if you haven't done so yet.
Next, if you don't already have a ReadCube Papers account you will have the opportunity to create one or log in if you already have an account. Please note that you won't be able to just sign in using your Papers 3 credentials, you will need to set up a new account.
Once in the new ReadCube Papers head to File > Import From Papers 3
The import will automatically begin.
If you don't see the option to Import from Papers 3, you just need to change your permissions on your desktop. Here is how you do that.
If you notice duplicates, be patient. The importer will resolve them as they upload. It can take some time before the duplicates are merged as we prioritize uploading the PDFs first.
Once you're finished, you can go the web, desktop or mobile apps to access your newly imported library along with your collections, notes, tags etc.
