But when I opened the exportted file, that are some columns that are called:

enter image description here

I would like to export them all does anybody know if is it possible? And why it's happaning this?

PS: I'm using the export tool from jabref to HTML going to : file > export > export all entries and choosing the libre office with the ods extention

Thanks a lot :)

JabRef Maintainer/Dev here. I took a brief look at the code, and it seems this is hard-coded and therefore cannot be chaged by the user. The code hasn't been modified in ages. I, however, agree with you that it should be possible to export all fields. Therefore, I suggest you create an issue at our bug tracker.

As a workaround, you can create a new Custom exporter on basis of the existing csv exporter. There, you can easily modify and include the fields you want to have.

  • I've changed the code but now the abstract and the comment is getting over the other columns. The code is the following: Oct 12, 2021 at 21:15
  • ... "\booktitle","\keywords","\chapter","\edition","\series","\format[Authors(LastFirst,FullName,Semicolon,Semicolon)]{\editor}","\publisher","\begin{reporttype}\reporttype\end{reporttype}","\howpublished","\institution","\organization","\school","\annote","\format[Replace(\n || \, , ;)]{\abstract}","\comment","\format[FileLink(pdf)]{\file}","\key" Oct 12, 2021 at 21:16
  • Did you add the new fields also to the begin.csv.layout (those define the columns) Oct 13, 2021 at 16:53
