When you have a .bib with hundred of references, it can be annoying to hunt through it looking for a specific entry and \cite key. That’s why we’ve made it possible to search for entries in your .bib files by author, title, year or journal, and then enter the citation key directly without needing to leave the editor:

References Search Modal

To access this modal, you can press Ctrl-Space in the citation-key autocomplete menu:
