John, another issue...a really minor one, and I am not sure if it is
org-ref related.  When I open the notes file, the org faces are not
applied evenly.  In particular, 

a) Text after #TITLE: or #AUTHOR appears as regular text.  If I use M-x
describe face, I get "default".  If modify in any way the face changes
to "org-document-info" as it should be.

b) Within the heading of each reference, the "TODO" statement appears
with the same face as the rest of the heading (org-level-2 face).

c) Links to pdf files appear like this, with default face:
[[cite:Collie2000]] [[file:/home/julian/Documents/Refs/Collie2000.pdf][pdf]]

And not as clickable links 
cite:Collie2000 pdf (underlined, in blue, with org-link face)

Again, as soon as I change anything the org-link face is applied and I
get a clickable link.

Of all this, the pdf links are the real issue, as they are
non-functional until I edit them.

Strangely, :PROPERTIES: and :END: appear in their correct face.  Also,
if I "fix" the faces (editing the text or pressing enter so I get the
right faces) and close the notes files, I get the same wriong faces when I
reopen the file.

Does this makes sense?  Do you know what could be the issue?
Many thanks again,
