    Great application, thanks so much! If you are using the Kanotix Live CD, you can run it by clicking on klik://kbibtex - more information on http://klik.atekon.de/kbibtex

    Kbibtex is what I am looking for, however if I import my *.bib file only 1/3 of the entries are listed -- in my case all entries with IDs up to "H*".

    I added a link for each entry between bibtex entry and the corresponding pdf in the bibtex file. I would be very handy to have a "download pdf from local db" function in Kbibtex. Then I can search entries and open/mail the corresponding pdf.

    thanks for this useful tool, cheers Oggi

    If KBibTeX does not load your .bib file completely, there are two possible reasons: (1) the .bib file is buggy (2) KBibTeX is buggy.
    Please send me your .bib file for debugging

    > I would be very handy to have a "download pdf from local db" function in Kbibtex.
    The feature you request might be already in the new version. For both the field "url" in "misc" and for valid urls in "user fields" you can click on "open" to open the file in konqueror.

    Hello, usually I don't check this page every day, so if you have questions or comments, please send me an email.
    If you have problems loading a bibtex file, please attach it to your email so that I can check it myself. Thanks!

     want this feature

    hello could you please implement this feature:

    usually I tend to copy the bib reference by selecting it via mouse and paste it. Now If i coud paste the bib_ref_source directly into kbibtex->element->new->source 'field tab' and it automatically updates the rest of the feilds in the other tabs in the window so from the source it woul fill in the title, author and all the details.

    another function: an import from endnote format to bib i am sure is possible, but i have not seen this feature. some of the sites provide only endnote/procite refs its a pain to get them converted to bib.

    thanks for such a great program :)

     Problems with *.bib!

    I have used KBibTeX v.0.1.1 and everything was fine, but after installing v.0.1.2 I cannot see more than half of entries. *.bib file was created by KBibTeX v.0.1.1. What's wrong?

    Sorry! I understood, the problem was with quotation marks in titles. Now it works!

    How do you like Plasma 5?
     The best KDE Desktop ever.
     Definitely a nice improvement.
     Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
     I do not like some of the changes.
     KDE is taking the wrong way.
     I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
     I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
