Post Annoyance in "Add to references" dialog
on: January 20, 2016, 20:37

Why I right-click a pdf and select "Add to References", the metadata is often (maybe 25% of the time) misread, so that the journal name shows up as the title. Searching for the journal name obviously does not return a useful result, so I enter the title by hand in the "search" field to look it up.

The annoying part is that usually I naturally hit "enter" after typing the article title, intending that to be the same as clicking the "Lookup" button. Unfortunately, it is instead treated the same as clicking the "Ok" button, creating a reference for the useless default result instead of looking up the title.

My request is to simply re-map an "enter" keystroke in the "search" field to correspond to the "Lookup" button instead of the "Ok" button.


From "java -showversion"
java version "1.7.0_91"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.3) (7u91-2.6.3-0ubuntu0.14.04.1)
