This submenu offers commands to switch between different data output types for references and notes, as well as the output formats of reference data and of citations.
bound to: Ctrl-cCtrl-rsr
Reference data can be retrieved in a variety of formats. If you use the menu command, a submenu with the available types will pop up. If you run the command in the minibuffer, please be aware that the argument is a symbol, not a string.
RIS and RISX are the most convenient types for working with references, as they can be updated in the database without further conversion. The other types are useful for exporting the data.
bound to: Ctrl-cCtrl-rsn
Notes data can also be retrieved in several formats. If you use the menu command, a submenu with the available types will pop up. If you run the command in the minibuffer, please be aware that the argument is a symbol, not a string.
xnote is the only type suitable for working with notes, as they can be updated in the database without further conversion. The other types are useful for exporting the data.
Selects the reference data output format. This will only affect output types other than RIS and RISX which always return all available information. With all other types only a reasonable subset is displayed by default. You can choose to display only ID values, all fields, or selected fields. If you run the command from the minibuffer, please note that format is a symbol, not a string.
Invokes the customization page for the appropriate variable which holds a list of data fields to display.
Selects the output type of citations. The short and the full citation type are available. The default is full, and you should not change this unless you know what you're doing.
Selects the output format of citations. The default is the XML syntax, but you can select the SGML syntax for SGML documents. The
xref element is empty, therefore the XML version requires an additional slash to denote this fact.
bound to: Ctrl-cCtrl-rsd
If used from the menu, this command will pop up a submenu with all databases that the current user has access to. The currently selected database is marked accordingly. Select one of the available databases to make it the active database.
If called interactively, this command will prompt the user with a completion list of available databases.
