Copy citation feature

I wish there was a way:

  • in my PP list of Papers
  • right click on a paper
  • copy the citation into the clipboard

it would be easiest to set up the default format ahead of time (e.g., APA)

this would be instead of

  • going to google docs
  • create a google doc
  • insert citation
  • format citations
  • copy the citation into the clipboard

To do this, select the citation(s) and either press Ctrl/Cmd + C or click the “Cite” button which appears above the list of papers. You can change the default citation style in the triangle menu next to the cite button.

oops! My bad. Thanks for your patience. New user here…

Hello from another new user. Inside my Paperpile library, I also see the option to generate a bibliography citation with either Command+C or the Cite button at the top. How can I generate an in-text citation for an entry instead of a bibliography entry?

Thanks in advance!

In-text citations can currently only be generated in Google Docs. See here for a guide on how to do that.
