Hey, Filippo. I just gave cb2bib a try, but I found the UI to be a bit strange. I couldn't figure out how to make it give me just a list of all references, although there must be a way.

Thanks, Carsten! Tellico looks pretty nice. It's pdf import is one of the better I've seen. It pulls full abstract, which are then available for searching, which is great. The only problem is that I can't figure out how to make it do a bulk import of a large number of pdfs, which means I'm having to import each one individually, which is a drag. jamie.
