Changing order of entries


(Kirk86) #1

Hi everyone and thanks fo making jabref great. I would like to propose the following feature which seems very simple and intuitive but doesn’t exist in any citation tool that I know of except some command line tools but still have some perks. The idea is basically the following, as users we would like the ability to simply drag-n-drop entries in order to sort them according to our preferences on how we would like the order of the references to show up in the document.

For instance. We have the following entries:

  1. Entry one
  2. Entry two
  3. Entry three
  4. Entry four
  5. Entry five

Now we would simply like to draw-n-drop 5 onto 2 so that it shows up before the second entry in the references of our document. Also it would be nice to have the ability to do it for multiple of them by selecting them at the same time and moving accordingly.

Please vote if you support this proposal:

  • I would like to have this feature, too!
  • I don’t care.
