File names containing special characters


(Dellu) #1

I use the convention “Author year title” as file renaming strategy. Jabref is able to find the files so far as they are stored in the appropriate folder.

but, some references contain characters like “/” and “;” in their titles. The files then have names with these special characters. Jabref tend to lose these files.

Here is an example:

@Article{Laenzlinger2010a,
author = {Laenzlinger, Christopher},
title = {The CP/DP parallelism},
File = {Laenzlinger 2010 The CP/DP parallelism.pdf},

Jabref is not able to link the PDF file of this reference.
Any work around?
