Export full library with all labels


#1

Before I move my library into paperpile, I want to make sure I can get it back out again when I want to!

Exporting my full library doesn’t seem to include labels for entries. I know I can export individual labels, but how can I keep label annotation when exporting my full library?

In Settings > Export you export your library as JSON file which includes label and folder information.

There is no standardized way to transfer label/folders between programs, so this information is not included in BibTeX and RIS export.

We have created the JSON export exactly for that reason so you can always get your data out in a machine readable format.

Thank you!

I did discover that if I move all my articles into one folder and export that, the labels are saved (as keywords) in BibTeX. That seems like exactly what I need.
