    Edit: Not what the OP is looking for
  • I want to batch change all the tags that contain "-" to "+" at once in Zotero. However, Zotero's renaming function can only rename one tag at a time, not multiple different tags simultaneously.
  • Make it clearer then. Your first example doesn't show that.
  • Check out Actions and Tags plugin and their specific scripts.
