[Tex/LaTex] TeXnicCenter and Jabref – refreshing database?


After adding a new reference with JabRef, I need to close and restart TeXnicCenter before the entries in the literature database menu of TeXnicCenter get updated. Isn't there a button for refreshing the literature database, so I will see my changes right away?

I also asked on latex-community

Note that JabRef is only a BiBTeX database manager. On my machine, with an open project, clicking the "Save All" (Ctrl+Shift+S) in TeXnicCenter does a refresh of the project structure, including that of a Literature database update if the project has been processed under BiBTeX. In TeXstudio to refresh the drop-down list of references after updating your .bib, simply save the .tex you're working in (Ctrl+s).
