Broken link files

I’m running Jabref 5.9.
I changed my bibkey pattern and files have to be re-linked.
I was wondering why broken links are still showing. They are written as “not found” in orange but how I can suppress those links in batch? Using F7 found (some) of the “new” files but old links are never cleaned up.

Hello Melanie :slight_smile:

One option would be to use Edit > Automatic field editor. Choose the file field and clear content. Afterwards, link all files via F7 again.
Before you do so, I would suggest to make a backup of your library though.

It works. Not that intuitive, though :thinking:
Works for this use case since everything is automatically linked and didn’t have manual linking I would not have wanted to erase.
