New Features:

  • Freehand annotations that were added using Papers 3 for iOS are now synched and displayed on Papers 3 for Mac! (Freehand annotation editing on Papers 3 for Mac will be added in a future update).
  • Dragging one or more papers from your library into a note annotation will now add the citekey references to that note.
  • Scripting API: It's now possible to set a publication's authors or editors via a string of person names:
tell application "Papers"
    set selectedPapers to selected publications of front library window
    set author names of first item of selectedPapers to "Griekspoor, A.C.; Neefjes, J.J.; Groothuis, T.A.M."
end tell

Performance & Stability Improvements:

  • Addresses a crash that could occur when interacting with collections in the sidebar.
  • Further performance & stability improvements to the new patch-based syncing engine.
  • Fixed an issue where Papers couldn't split a string of multiple author names by the semicolon character.
  • Fixed an issue where if the "Suggested matches" popover was dismissed without matching, outdated results would be displayed the next time the popover was used with a different paper.
