Using JabRef v3.3, I can easily search the scientific paper on the internet in save it into bibtex database. But when I try to download the full text for the whole database, I met some trouble.

By searching the internet, I have been told that the local copy as an external program for find the full text tool should be installed in the plugin ->Manage Plugins. But I can't find a way to install the .jar external program in the version 3.3 (I couldn't find the plug-in option).

I use quality -> look up full texts document instead, but it seems like I would only download one .pdf per time.

So, how to download all the related files for one .bib database. Any advice would be appreciate!
