Appreciate the conversation . . . I guess I am coming closer to actually needing to read the manual, which I try to avoid if at all possible, I’m an “Install first, then read instructions” kind of a guy . . . clicking on stuff, see what happens . . . .
I did go to Pubmed and ran a key word search and picked an item and I did find the DOI number, and somehow I figured out >click on >new entry icon, that opened a blank entry?? I pasted or cntrl V’d the DOI number, and indeed, there was the entry title . . . but no “abstract” was loaded . . . ??? Looking around to see if the Free Full Text article could be linked to the new entry . . . didn’t seem to be obvious??
My minimal “need” is that either by pmid or DOI I could import an item, and the abstract would be there, and then a simple way to download and import the associated full text article . . . ???
I did find “search for unlinked local files” . . . because I believe I have 117 pdfs that were exported from BE that need to be manually linked up in Jabref, I’m in my big database where most of the attached pdfs would be wanted, but it seemed to be pulling all of the pdfs, whereas a number of them would be going to other libraries . . . . I tried to click or 2x click on the “attached file” icon in the line entry to the left of the title . . . some of the line items show that icon, but again, nothing opened?? I thought you mentioned some feature about “auto-linking attachments” . . . didn’t see that feature in the obvious menus . . . ?? Seems like I have to go through the pdfs and figure out which ones go to which library, then “search for unlinked local files”??? which it did open the correct directory to do that, it just selected ALL of them w/o regard to which library they should be going to . . . .
Still playing with it, but seems like it should be “simple” to import reference + abstract + full text connected to the line item . . . the rest, like setting up “sub-groups” by topic would be less important, but was a feature of BE . . . .
So far I would add that “snap” isn’t something that works for me . . . I would want to link to LibreOffice writer, etc.
