The very first steps towards a plugin for Microsoft Word are done and we thought we’d give you an early preview. It’s the first alpha and has some known bugs, but most of the time it does the job. 🙂
Known issues (which will be fixed in the next releases) are:
- Large download filesize (14.4MB)
- Several Microsoft run-time environments are being installed before the Word plugin is installed
- The plugin will only work for the user who installed it
- Removing documents from your Mendeley library which you have cited in your Word document causes blank citations
- Standard undo doesn’t work as expected after Mendeley action (eg. changing the citation style of bibliography: undo changes back each entry one by one instead of all at once)
You can download the plugin on our download page. We would really appreciate your feedback and bug-reports to improve the plugin for our next release!
