Totally messed up all my citations on a report with errors such as "something bad has happened" .....yeah, i know, far too explicit. So - chrome - google docs - in this case totally unfit for purpose/waste of time

All I get is 'something bad happened' or another error like 'did you select text' it seems to be totaly unsuable, which is a shame because it seems to offer so much. I think it might actually be faster to just do it all manually.

Really weird access permissions ("send email as you"?? what the hell is that for?). Installed, had to sign in, fine, tried to but my institution is not signed up apparently. Uninstalled.

Using it with Google Docs on a Chromebook. When Refworks works, it's great and saves a lot of time. However, it's frustrating when it doesn't work. By this, I mean the often reported hangups and random deletions of references. Another huge frustration is that within the 'edit and cite' option, it teases by showing a box to reference a page number, but the functionality just isn't there. Fixing the lack of page numbering would earn an extra two stars.

Mostly works well,but it keep having a error stating "something bad happened" and then when I check my reference list suddenly a bunch of my references are missing. Good idea, would be super great if it worked better!
