I have synced Mendeley and overleaf to create my 'Mendeley.bib' file.

Just out of curiosity, I was wondering if there is any order to the citations within the bib file? or if the order can be set?

I am having to scroll or cntrl+F through the file to find particular objects. I would prefer them to be in alphabetical, chronological, or even date added order.

  • The Mendeley API sends the content to Overleaf alphabetized by title (and right now there is no setting to change this). (Full disclosure: I now work at Overleaf.) – Paul Gessler Oct 15 at 15:32
  • Ah yes, this does seem to be the case - although I find a few exceptions in my version. Shame it can't be changed. Thanks for your help – KGee Oct 17 at 10:10
