Hello, it would be very useful to have an option to remove the "comment" field from Bibtex entries when exporting references into a Bibtex file. Thanks!

You can achieve that by renaming the field to something else - see the "Advanced" options.

Thanks for your help. However, this simply rename the field "comment" into "ignore", but it is still exported into the file. Is it a bug?

No - "ignore" was a poorly chosen replacement word in my example.

ok ;), however the new field is now named "flibblemcglibble" but is still in the bibtex file! Here is the URL I'm using: www.citeulike.org/bibtex_options/user/timflutre/tag/a3?fieldmap=comment:flibblemcglibble

Yes - it is simply renamed. Why is this a problem?

I am trying to completely skip the field when downloading the file. For instance, there is an option to exclude Amazon URL. I would like to know if it's possible to have a similar option allowing to exclude the field "comment" when downloading a bibtex file.

I use BibTool to remove various fields from the BibTeX export (e.g., citeulike-article-id, citeulike-linkout-*, posted-date) before sharing it with collaborators or checking into to a paper's repository. No doubt other tools exist.

Thanks, I will have a look at it. I just thought it would be a nice feature to have from CiteULike directly.

I agree that it would be nice but it would also be messy, since there are so many potential fields that one might want to remove.
