Could you please introduce a method to bulk change author names/journal titles/year/date etc.? I have many scanned newspaper articles and bulk changing those would spare me days of work. Is their any method to do this? Otherwise such a funtion would be great, just as the already existing bulk change reference type function.

Hi, Alex

You can already do this for some fields (the plain text ones) via References > Search and replace. This'll work for Year and Date, but not for author names and journal titles as they are kept in separate lists. For these it's probably easiest to merge them via the Lists menu. Could you please describe your requirements in a little more detail? I might have a macro in store that does exactly what you need.

Best regards

Sebastian
