I was previously using JabRef in Windows as the bibtex reference manager for my research related work. But I decided to change my laptop and bought a MacBook. So the issue is JabRef is not working in MacOS Catalina 10.15.4. Can anyone please suggest me a good reference manager for bibtex which is compatible with MacOS Catalina ?

  • I tried BibDesk as well, but it does not seem to be compatible with MacOS Catalina. May 13, 2020 at 21:03
  • Jabref 5.0 is working fine under Mac OS Catalina. Could you please report any issues to github.com/JabRef/jabref May 14, 2020 at 5:56
  • I installed Jabref 5.0 and now it seems working well. But the previous time I installed it, the application was not laggy at all. May 14, 2020 at 6:19
