I had been using JabRef-3.8.2 on the old desktop and now use JabRef-4.3.1 on the new desktop. I have questions about changes:
Using the JabRef -> Lyx link icon I inserted a citation in the LyX text and the reference was inserted in the bibliography. However, when I tried to preview the output LaTeX refused because the reference has deprecated font syntax, specifically ‘\sc’ and ‘\bf’. These have been replaced with
‘\textsc’ and ‘\textbf’, respectively. How do I get JabRef to use the accepted formats instead of the deprecated ones?
Looking at refereces in the JabRef UI I see small, yellow triangles by some fields on some references. Holding the cursor over them shows me what JabRef does not like. With multiple authors on a publication, I’ve always specified authors as ‘Lastname1, F.I. and Lastname2, F.I. and …’. JabRef’s flag says this is not acceptable JabRef format. Why not, and what is?
In the title field when uppercase letters begin words other than the first one JabRef tells me that they’re not written within braces. Do I need to change all entries so that uppercase letters other than at the start of the title are within curly braces?
Is there a changelog showing all changes in 4.3.1 from earlier versions, specifically 3.8.2?
There used to be an address that allowed me to communicate directly using e-mail rather than logging in this web forum. If I can still do this, please share the address with me.
