Endnotes + Dropbox Reference make easy… ??
If you are one of those who work on multiple computers and would like to have all your references and pdf texts at your finger tips. You not the only one.
I have tried and tried and am still trying to find that perfect solution. If there ever one. .
For a few months I tried Mendeley. Seems to work great in the beginning – retrieves the title and all other info automatically – minimised manual input, build in pdf reader and annotation. It was my fair child UNTIL I have to re-install my window – attempt to sync the library over the internet wipe out 75% of my pdf. It left me with the header only without text, asking me to reattached every single one of them. ABANDONED. I rather spending time doing sometime more useful like hmm, writing this blog ?! Basically, I just left it where it was. Not touching it until I have to.
And Today, it is finally the time I have to. I was writing part of my phd and found that I could not find the reference I wanted. It is time to tackle this hairy beast (again).
I decided to roll back to Endnote but still want that sexy online synable over the internet function. I scouted around and found THIS:Endnotes & Dropbox combination!
Quick update *** the combination seems to have problems see: http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?page=2&id=9517&replies=47
