  1. Add a function to import open pdf files from browsers.

    At the moment it seems that references can only be imported from a web browser using specific search engines, and from their search results or publication information pages. Being able to directly download pdfs (and the corresponding citation info) that are open in a web browser would make the web importer more versatile.

  2. Touch Screen Compatible Highlighter

    Allow the highlighter to be used with a finger or stylus on a touch screen, instead of having to use a mouse.

  3. Edit publications in Groups

    Currently, it is not possible, to edit a publication in a group. Maybe, because it is just linked to the main entry. But the problem is that the title formatting (i. e. species names in italics) is lost. Also, if I click on the group's entry, the formatting gets also lost in the main entry. That's a bug, i think.

  4. Zotero importer ignores italic text

    I switch over to colwiz because it supports Google Docs. After importing my library from Zotero, all text marked in italics (i. e. species names in titles) disappeared. Now I have to edit all publications and retype the html tag for italics (<i>E. coli</i>). That's quite a lot of work.
    It would be better to import this information as well.

  5. Subgroup in library

    I think it would be nice if you include the option to have subgroups in the individual groups.

  9. android app

    The choices in the app are a little weak.
    I would like to add an folder for recently added and recently read.

    But I love that I can use Adobe pdf Reader -- do not change that!

  10. Crucial

    1- It will be a marvellous app/programme/website, if you can integrate Colwiz with Jabref (since Jabref is also written in Java) and/or Kbibtex. Extracting citations in Bibtex form will be much easier than now.

    2- It is interesting not to see New Hart's (Oxford) style in a website/app prepared by researchers of Oxford University. It will be very kind of you if you can add it to the options.

    3- Finally but momentous, it will be amazing if you can make google scholar to recognize -just and only- the articles shared to all world in Colwiz.

  12. Highlight and androud

    I just love this software. There only two things I'm not really pleased with. First I would like to highlight words and sentences instead of just rectangles. Secondly the reader should also be available on the Android version. This would really make a deference.

  13. Add support for high DPI screens

    Windows 8 scaling makes the UI appear very blurry, but disabling the scaling makes the UI too small to be usable. The software seems like exactly what I'd like, but I am unable to use it sadly.

  14. Search by subject

    The search function gives me a too broad set of articles. It would be more useful if there was an option to specify subject, e.g. marketing, nursing, engineering, social media, advertising.

  15. Read/unread differentiation

    In Mendeley there is a column where you can see if you have read or opened an article or not. I think this functionality is so valuable and I would like to see it in Colwiz

  16. Mac app - losing all annotation when a comment includes the double quote char

    So I've been round and recreated the problem a few times so I'm happy its reportable.
    Although it seems like an issue that others would have hit already if it were a global issue.
    I'm finding that I lose all annotations to a pdf when I include a comment with the double quote (") character.
    I'm using version 2.13.
    Feel free to drop me an email if you would like more details.

    Also on the suggestions front, a way to add links to annotations (to other docs in colwiz and urls) would save alot of time.

    Great app tho,
    Thanks.

  18. pdf annotation syncing

    I have been trying it for some times but it does not appear that my annotation in my tablet are synced. That is, it does not appear that changes made in my tablet, at least on the pdf files, are not synced. But it is really necessary to have this functionality.

Many thanks for the post!

  20. It's really hard to relocate conversation, file shared between me and another collaborator

    not all of the notifications load, cannot filter notifications. Ideally, I can type in the name of my collaborator and all types of communication would appear, e.g., files that are shared in Drive.
