Quit using Mendeley people!

They started encrypting your database so you cannot easily move it over to other tools any more.

See:
zotero.org/support/kb/mendeley

That link also helps you saving your data before it's too late.

(Elsevier are a bunch of crooks, blocking interoperability one-way and not the other. Almost as bad as Google blocking uBlock for your safety...)

@arjen @dantheclamman Correct, and they even encrypt the database created by the "Backup" function. Only way around it is to maintain a v1.18 install somewhere (I have it on my Win10 virtual machine, pinned to that version using Chocolatey) or maybe this very complicated approach (not mine): eighty-twenty.org/2018/06/13/m

Dang, glad I quit them when I grew frustrated by them still not supporting my laptop's hidpi display
