Autogenerate bibtex keys should follow the pattern specified in preferences.
For example, set pattern to [authforeini][auth][year] but pattern is not followed when key is generated in
Quality … Autogenerate Bibtex key
nor when key is generated in Web Search (e.g. IEEEXplore).

- I don’t care.
I do not see where the problem is. Here the keys are autogenerated.
The problem is… The autogenerated key is always in the form [auth][year] irrespective of the preferences setting. This makes the preferences setting of little use.
these are imported through the medline/webinterface
7-10 are imported through [auth][year], the others using [authshort][shortyear]. The preference is changed in Options->Preferences->Bibtex-Key-Generator and saved. IMHO this has been working flawlessly since long.
