Quit using Mendeley people!

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


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 I just love that I found this toot again. All I remembered is that "somebody" posted "something" on an alternative to Mendeley here on this instance, entered "mendeley" into the search and here I go, happily installing Zotero. Now let's get to imports.

Thank you very much Arjen!
