I want to manage my PDFs.
So far I know how to:
- Create a library (also called a table?)
- Create a new entry
- Drop a PDF file onto the entry.
The file is linked to the entry, but that is it. Nothing else happens; No Title, Author, Year information at all. (When I tried with Linux version, I was able to see the title etc. twice, only twice. And I cannot replicate the behavior.) Not even a menu option to fetch metadata manually. In Zotero there’s a “Retrieve metadata for PDF”, nice and clear.
How do I “retrieve metadata”? Is JabRef supposed to do it automatically? Is there any options or checkbox I have to check?
Frankly I do not understand why I cannot figure this out by myself. It seems to me is the basic, most basic user case, yet it is so obscure for a new user to find out. But many recommend JabRef. What is going on here?
Thank you for your help!
