Sorry, i said something foolish. My initial impression was that you tried to create a folder hirarchy from within jabref by inserting special names in the ‘Linked file name conventions’ section.
I tried to reproduce what you do on
Windows 10 10.0 amd64
When i use these options, nothing happens. entries don’t move and a pdf folder is not created:
When i use the following option instead of
pdfs\[groups:(unknown)], on first usage of
cleanup entries, it only changes the name of the pdf files, on second usage it moves the pdf files to folder test1:
I then realised that the pdf files in the bib entry still link to the original folder instead of test1. So i ticked the option
cleanup entries which solved that problem, but since then i can’t move it back to the original folder even when i enter the original folder in
Main file directory and that very folder shows up in
I did try a few other things, but I have never encountered any error messages. Maybe because i use the Windows edition and you use another one?
Could you also post your Jabref version + Operating system? You can find this in Help>About JabRef
