How to customize reference style?

Hello,
I would like to customize a reference style. I found the webpage for the export filter, I have seen there is a filter ad hoc (by the way, how do I install it? it is the same as the Options>Manage custom exports?), but is the custom export the same as the reference style?
Is there a tutorial on how to customize the reference styles?
Thank you

Hi,
are you referring to the entry preview in JabRef itself? Here is a how-to:
https://docs.jabref.org/setup/preview

It uses the same syntax as the custom exports

No, the actual Citation Style, how the reference will be on the final document…
I want to remove, for instance the tailing space that JabRef add to each call and the dots in the journals abbreviation (and the final dot in the journal’s name) in the reference list at the end.

Hi,

I’m a bit confused, as I don’t really know what kind of document you have. Are you using Open/LibreOffice? bibtex/biblatex together with LaTeX ?
JabRef has normally nothing to do with the format of the reference list.

Assuming you are working with LibreOffice/OpenOffice:

  1. Create your custom citation style (*.jstyle) either by using the syntax for the layout file (which is the same as export filters use) or by using the external tool you referred to.
    For a thorough guide see: https://docs.jabref.org/cite/openofficeintegration
  2. Load your custom jstyle file in Jabref (also see: https://docs.jabref.org/cite/openofficeintegration)

You don’t need to install anything. If you refer to the Export-Filter-Editor. It doesn’t need to be installed. It’s just an executable file.

Assuming you want to create a custom export filter to create a html or rtf list of reference:

  1. Create your custom citation style either by using the syntax for the layout file (or by using the external tool you referred to. see: https://docs.jabref.org/collaborative-work/export/customexports
  2. Load your Export filter (Options>Manage custom exports)
