I work in an institution which has a subscription to paperpile.
I am currently marking some student work, which has presumably been written in google docs then exported and handed in as a PDF for me to mark. As you might expect we go to quite some lengths to anonymise student work and remove any problems with bias.
Imagine my surprise when annotating a student PDF in adobe acrobat I discover that I can click on the links in the bibliography and be taken to a page where I can see the student’s name, therefore breaking the anonymisation process.
Is there any way this can be stopped simply? I have seen the references to the workaround in this thread: Disable PDF Links/Bibliography Control . However, I am slightly reluctant to issue students with a set of instructions outwith paperpile depending on other software they may or may not use to ensure their reports are anonymised. That’s subject to all sorts of issues. Our admin staff already have a lot of things on their plate without further processing of student work.
I have also seen the references to a new menu item in this thread: Website links in references . However when I look under the export menu item under my copy of paperpile I cannot see any document export option (only reference export items as BibTeX or RIS). Has the feature been removed again?
