Re: [O] org-ref: various directories

The thing to do here is write a function that will take a bibtex key, and loop through your directories to find the pdf, and then return the full path to the pdf. Then customize the variable org-ref-get-pdf-filename-function to point to that function.


Out of the box, org-ref expects all the pdfs to be named key.pdf and to be in a single directory. That is partly due to this library https://github.com/jkitchin/org-ref/blob/master/doi-utils.el which downloads pdfs for you from a doi in that format.
