Unfortunately the "Insert Bibliography" button doesn't do anything... Also, the absence of keyboard shortcuts to invoke search (followed by insertion) and the general slowness of the "Insert Citation", makes the user experience pretty clunky and unfriendly. Hope this tool comes out of beta soon and that these issues are addressed, as this will be a dealbreaker for me, despite all the amazing features of the papers app itself.

There is a bug in the google docs app? Whichever citation style I try to use in the bibliography it doesn’t add the paper title in the reference. This capability to use smartcite in gdocs is really great!

I am enjoying using gdocs for manuscript writing. Been using ReadCube for a long time and stoked to have gdoc supported now.

It's been a very useful tool for our lab! We didn't run into any issue with adding in the bibliography... maybe we are on a newer version?

still problematic where a single reference number can refer to 2 different references. highly recommend people to double-check their references and corresponding numbers throughout the document.

This feels much like the Word version in that it promises a lot but does nothing well. My current issue is that it does not insert a bibliography at all. Apparently this is a "known issue" but they have no idea of when a fix will be available. I really have hated using this software and wish I never moved over from Papers 3. They have nice support people like Cary and Ayie trying to help out, but ultimately it boils down to software that does not work as advertised (or at all). Beware of the marketing hype on their website "Citing references doesn't need to be a painful process!". Using this citation manager (both Word and Google docs versions) has been the most painful process of my academic life.

In initial testing, fixes all bugs we noted and reported for the Word version. Great! Once the Word version is rebuilt, we'll be happy as clams :-)
