Adding references to own library via the add-on

When I search references through the sidebar, first I am prompted for “ITEMS FROM YOU LIBRARY”, which is great.

At the end of the resulting list, I can “search online”, and then I get “ITEMS FROM THE WEB”. Excellent.

Now, is it possible to add those “items from the web” to my library, without performing again the search inside the Paperpile app?

This feature is no yet part of the new add-on. There are two workarounds:

  • Go to “Cog menu > Manage references” and add the references from there. It’s just one click.
  • Add the citations via the “P” button in the Google Docs toolbar or “Paperpile > Insert citation” menu. This will automatically import all references you cite from a web search to your library (we probably will make this the default behavior of our new sidebar add-on as well)

Thanks Stefan!
