  1. Add pdf preview panel

    PDF preview side panel will be a great enhancement. One best remembers a paper by its visual appearance.

  2. Sync between Colwiz calendars and mac calendar

    I think that a possibility to sync the colwiz calendars and the mac calendar app would be a very nice extension

  3. Citation from captions

    Adding a citation inside a figure caption doesn't work (Word Office 2010, Windows 7). The citation is given number "1", and the reference is not added to the bibliography with the citations from the main body text.

  4. 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.

  5. Tell the user whether import succeeded ot not

    At the moment it can silently fail, perhaps because the paper is already there, and perhaps not.

    Thanks for posting. Try downloading the latest version of colwiz off our website and see if the problem persists.

    Also mention the source which you are importing from.

  6. create the possibility to add tags to (shared) document folders

    Would it be possible to tag the articles shared in our library with certain keywords? Or, otherwise, structure them in another way?
    Let's say, our group shares several hundert publications after using colwiz for a while, and you want to see all articles which are associated with a certain topic, i.e. climate change or a certain measurement method.

    In this case, it would be helpful to be able to view all papers which have a certain tag.

    Thanks for posting. This feature is already present in colwiz. Once you select a publication, double click on the panel on the right to edit its details. There, you can scroll down and find the “Keywords” tab where you can add and save keywords for that article.

    Once a keyword has been associated with an article, it can be searched up with that keyword using the “view all keywords” button on the top right of your colwiz library panel. Write the keyword on the search bar there and you will see all the articles associated with it.
