Hi, I’m writing my dissertation in markdown (using Scrivener). I need to wrap up the dissertation before the end of the year. Since Paperpile currently features neither Scrivener integration nor an officially supported markdown workflow I’m currently just adding placeholder notes in lieu of proper references. For a while, I have been quietly hoping that a working markdown referencing workflow would appear soon, but I’m running out of time.
Should I expect a working markdown solution before autumn 2023? In that case I could start inserting citation keys, if that’s how it will work, in my writing. (This thread has some discussion around that: https://forum.paperpile.com/t/what-are-citation-keys-and-how-can-they-be-used/2715/26.)
If not, I unfortunately need to plan a move from Scrivener to Word at some point.
Another option would be to download a JSON dump of my Paperpile library and create a script on my own to convert citation keys in my markdown files to proper references. I’m a decent programmer and could solve this, but I also have a PhD thesis to finish, aaand this is why we have citation managers, right? =)
All the best, E
