Export of "Citation relations"

Hello, and sorry asking such a basic question - I haven’t managed to find some comments in previous posts. I am trying to export my entries incl. the “Citatation relations” automatically updated / provided by JabRef, but so far I am getting only the standard BibTex without this “CR” information. Is there a way to persist this for export? Thanks a lot in advance for your support.

Dear Jürgen,

Thank you for your question.

Some historical note: In 2020, we had the implementation ready to store all external citations to the bib file. However, in 2021, we decided against it (Added support to explore citation relations by timbachmann · Pull Request #7160 · JabRef/jabref · GitHub).

Note that you can import entries by clicking a button - then, this can entry is “somehow” in your library.

There is an issue for linking the imported entry using the cites field (Links to other entries - JabRef). We are working on a fix (internal link: https://github.com/JabRef/jabref-issue-melting-pot/issues/345)

We put the wish in our internal roadmap (non-public link https://github.com/JabRef/jabref-issue-melting-pot/issues/346). Maybe, we can make a student project out of it.
