The cb2Bib Citer is a keyboard based module for inserting citation IDs
into a working document. Conveniently, the command
c2bciter, or its
cb2bib –citer, can be assigned to a global, desktop wide
shortcut key. This will provide an easy access to the citer from within
any text editor. Pressing the shortcut turns on and off the citer panel.
Once appropriate references are selected, pressing key C sets the
citations either to the clipboard or to a LyX pipe, closes the citer
panel, and returns keyboard focus to the editor.
c2bciter loads all references from the current directory,
specified in the cb2Bib main panel. On the desktop tray, the cb2Bib icon
indicates that the citer is running. Its context menu offers the
possibility to load other files or directories, or to toggle full screen
Search, filtering, navigation, and citation are keyword based. Pressing keys A, I, J, T, and Y sorts the references by author, included date, journal, title, and year, respectively. Key F initiates filtering, and Esc leaves filtering mode. References are selected when pressing enter. Key S toggles the current selection display, and Del clears the selection. The combination Shift + letter navigates through the rows starting by the letter.
Advanced filtering capabilities are available after indexing the documents. Document indexing, or term or key sentence extraction, is performed by clicking the tray icon menu action Index Documents. Once indexing is done and after clicking Refresh, pressing K displays the document extracted keywords, and pressing G, the collection glossary of terms. On a keyword, pressing R display all documents indexed by the keyword. On a document, pressing R display related documents. Relatedness is set from keyword based similarity measures.
Key sequence Alt+C toggles clipboard connection on and off. When connection is on, the clipboard contents is set, each time it changes, as the filter string. This provides a fast way to retrieve a given reference while browsing elsewhere.
