Author's name and the displayed version in column

(Y Zhai) #1

Hi guys, I met a problem when I uses the version 3.8.2. The author’s name looks like this:
Tom S. Le Roy.
I typed in the entry part like this:
Le Roy, Tom S.
but in the author/editor column, it reads:
Roy and Tom
The problem seem solved if I type in:
Le Roy, Tom S. and Someone, Else
But there are only one author there. And the auto-generated bibkey is wrong, too.
Does anyone here know how to solve this problem?

Did you tried out JabRef 4.0 beta? We recently improved our name parsing algorithm and I suppose the problem is fixed now.

Thank you for your reply :slight_smile:
I will try later and report the result back here.
