  • Thanks for your update, it’s a very perfect tool to read literature and write paper. I have a problem in export map to a letax documents. the export tex documents really confused me. if I marked a sequense number in the map and when I export it, it shows that two repeated number.

    I’m very happy to see progress in Docears development, especially I need the bugfix for the metadata search.

    But, unfortunately, this beta version does not work at all for me. I’m using a Mac (OS X, 10.7.5) and downloaded the zip-file. Starting docear via the command line with


    gives me (after some other output), the following error and nothing happens therafter:

    I’d be glad to help out, so if there is anything I could try to get it working, please tell me.
    By, the way, it starts perfectly under Fedora 21 (but the metadata retrieval does not work for me – should I send you the extended logging output to ?)

    Hi there,

    importing references still does not work for me.
    However, in the extended log I do find the metadata, including abstract and everything… So I guess its a problem on the docear side.
    adding to the other comment: where do I send the log file?

    below is an cutout from the (really extensive 🙂 log including the metadata

      actually, the data in the log seems to have been the XMP metadata stored in the PDF.

      However, I noticed that the automatic fetching of the reference works fine with publications from ‘Springer’ publishing group. Just not with anything else…

  • Many thanks for that!

    I will try it next week in the preparation of my next presentation.

    Hello, how can I get the new beta version to run? I am a total newbie and was looking for an “.app” file or alike to use it on mac. Not sure what I am supposed to do with the .sh-file?

    Hi, curious to deploy the new beta and the add-on.
    a) how to install the beta? Need ideally an app-file for Mac
    b) where to buy add-on or (as a long-term supporter) proof my previous donations to get the add-on for free?
    c) how to get the add-on running (or will I get a new app-file with it integrated)

    Nice new version!! I had problems with former versions, but that new one is working perfectly here (in a corporative PC)!! I am very glad the PDF-metadata-automatically-picking from Google is working now.
    thanks so much!!
