Importing pdfs specified by file=" " in bibtex

Hi folks, a new paperpile user here. I imported a bibtex file with about 2200 references. Each bib item has a file=" " field, with an absolute path to the pdf specified. For some reason these pdf files don’t get linked to the paper in paperpile. Is this possible?

Was able to do the import from a .ris file and attaching my pdf folder.

Could you explain the “attaching my pdf folder” part? Thanks!

Hi - unfortunately, my trial has expired so I can’t recreate my steps exactly, but during import you can select a top level folder which contains your pdfs.
