To handle academic articles through Papers you may want to arrange the following settings for your Papers library:
When establishing these setting for the first time make sure to follow the following steps:
1) Open the Library Tab in Papers preferences and note the current location of your library.
2) Quit Papers
3) Move the “Papers” directory from the previous location to Documents/Filed Documents
4) Open Papers. It will tell you that it cannot find the library. Point to the right location of its library (Documents/Filed Documents/Papers).
5) Open Preferences in Papers and make sure that the right settings are set as in the figure above.
This means that all files imported into Papers will end up properly named and located in this directory. Files can be imported into Papers directly from any PDF, from a Website or through the special automated workflow which is run by Hazel. Here is this workflow
Note that the workflow runs on the Downloads folder. Thus when you are saving files from the Web, Mail Attachments or any other files given to you all you have to do is to save them in the Downloads folder and rename them so that the name has “@p” at the end. You do not need to worry about the name itself – Papers will automatically rename the files as soon as it matches it with the right bibliographic information.
