Converting "individual" author names to "institution / organisation" names
Support Staff2 Posted by charles on 09 Mar, 2011 12:50 AM
First of all, thanks very much for your interest in Papers, and
thanks for your feedback.
Because of the Papers2 launch, I am sorry we are experiencing a
very high load in support emails, about 10 to 15 times the usual
volume. As a result, even though we normally respond within hours,
we find ourselves temporarily unable to respond to all of you. We
read it all and take notes of issues and feedback, but can't
respond individually. We are also adding more tutorials and
resources in our support web site, be sure to check things here. We
also keep a few of user-generated discussions public if they
address a common problem, feel free to chime in on those if you
think you can help others as well (and we will make public
discussions private when they duplicate other discussions or only
add more confusion for incoming users without answering a relevant
issue). If your issue or question is not properly answered via
these resources, please feel free to send again an email in reponse
to this, but please wait a few days if possible to give us time to
add more resources and also fix initial bugs or workflow problems
of Papers 2.

It's not author auto completuon like in the 2.0.0 release I want - that was even more broke. I want to be presented with a list of authors and institutions that I can select from. Ideally in the same Pane - not the pop up one that exists at present. Or if you want to keep the pop out one, at least make it navigable with keyboard - it's no fun importing around 20 documents each week.

I am not sure how that differs from autocompletion?

Are you not able to get the list of author from a repository? An
alternative is also to copy all the authors string from the PDF,
and then past the whole thing, it will parse the string to create
all the authors at once.
