How do I Set Up Watch Folders?

Note that this article refers to the ReadCube (legacy) desktop application. We will be releasing a brand new version of ReadCube Papers for OS X and Windows soon!

No matter how you get your articles or where they end up, ReadCube can find them! Just set the folders you'd like ReadCube to monitor in the Preferences section of the desktop app, and any new PDFs in those folders will be imported automatically.

To set up your watch folders, go to the preferences tab - the gear icon in the bottom left corner of the desktop app.

From there, select the ReadCube Pro tab.

Select the folders you would like ReadCube to automatically synchronize. Remember, we will sync every PDF that hits this folder, so it may not be ideal to set a general folder like your "Download" folder.
