I downloaded 4. So I am back to jabref 3 until this is fixed - my workflow entails getting hard copies of papers I am working on and linking them to my bibtex. Jabref 3 is very good- jabref 4 at the moment is still not ready for researchers who have large bibtex files. Try metal, instead of GTK. GTK Style is known to be problematic.

In current development versions that does not appear to be possible anymore. Instead, JabRef apparently starts to automatically look for all files whose names start with the bibtex key depending on your setting and then allow you you add these files. I would prefer that this automatic behaviour was turned off or if people like it, that there is at least a way of turning it off and that the manual addition becomes possible again with a dedicated button.
Furthermore, I have the impression that JabRef no longer checks just the main file directory as it did in version 3. Can you confirm this?
Get fulltext only searches online, not local. This was on purpose. There is somewhere an issue about that. BIB file directory if the option use as primary directory in the global prefs is checked, than this dir is searched first and takes precedence over all others.
Siedlerchr Thank you for the explanation. Or will it set the file links for ALL entries of the database? If it is the former, I am ok with it: The functionality that "Get fulltext" originally provided has just been moved to another menu I would say maybe less intuitive, but I reckon there are reasons and it can even be used with a keyboard shortcut.
If it is the latter, though, then the manual assignment of links for a SINGLE entry is still missing - I would really like to see that implemented in that case.
It would be nice, to disable the automatic autolink feature in the entry editor, since it can get quite confusing when you have lots of files, especially those that start with the same bibtex key. Furthermore, the file row in the "General" tab of the entry editor should display more rows. Here an example of the same entry with JabRef 3.
JabRef 3. As you can see, in the case of JabRef 5. The rest can only be reached by scrolling down. Note, that in this case JabRef has been opened on a 40'' screen 4k at max window height so this is definitely not an issue regarding the size of the monitor or its resolution.
Rather, the standard settings for displaying things in the various entry editor tabs need some revamp I think this applies to a couple of rows in the entry editor, but for now, this is the one I have spotted.
Thank you also very much for clarifying the way JabRef searches for linked files. Ok, in this case I will have to think about my current folder setup and where to store the JabRef database relative to the file folder. Skip to content.

Hi, you are right. However, there is currently no option to disable this feature for the entry editor, Furthermore, I have the impression that JabRef no longer checks just the main file directory as it did in version 3. BIB file directory if the option use as primary directory in the global prefs is checked, than this dir is searched first and takes precedence over all others I hope this helps to clarify the feature a bit.

Oh no! Some styles failed to load. 😵
JabRef is a reference manager based upon the BibTeX system and has many useful and powerful features. One of these features is to link any reference to any arbitraty file. This means, for example, that you can click on an icon by each reference and be immediately shown the relevant source file; a very handy feature. The problem is that is is not immediately obvious how to set up the program to detect these files automatically.

BibTex and LaTex: JabRef
I have been using this constellation for years in JabRef and never experienced problems. Do you have any ideas, why have now this problem? Was there a change in the software? How can I solve this problem?
