Perhaps I'm a difficult customer then (quite likely). I had half a dozen unresolved tickets in Papers, before ReadCube replaced the support system. I agree that support was responsive to queries, I just got the impression they were struggling to keep up with demand and things fell through the cracks.

Sort of the same experience from me.
I've been following Mekentosj closely since Papers 1, and had several tickets that were never resolved. But on top of that, Papers 1, 2 and 3 is some of the most unstable and bug-ridden software I've ever encountered, making it painful to work with until you learned how to get around them. QA was definitely not a concept Mekentosj is aware of.

I am hopeful that Readcube handles the application much better, but due to their software-as-a-service model (ie. subscription), I am not sure I will ever use it. I am currently settled in Papers 2 (I've never been able to use Papers 3 for more than 5 minutes without seeing it crash) and know most of its quirks by heart, and can probably get by with it for a long time if it doesn't break with an OS upgrade.

Hi Papers and Scrivener users,

After the last Papers update I found a really unfortunate issue: every time I format my manuscript, Papers changes the font of my citations and bibliography to Helvetica.

I tested this with older documents correctly formatted with Papers to figure out if it was a Word paragraphs style issue, and I can confirm that this is a Papers problem.

I tried also downgrading Word to version 15.40 but the problem persists. Could anyone confirm this situation?

Thanks for your help!

I am on Papers 3.4.18 and have recently upgraded to Scrivener 3, but Magic Citations does not work. It appears, then when attempting to insert the cite key, nothing actually happens.
Same deal with Word (Office 365).
