[Zotero 7 Beta] bug: double click software item to open pdf attachment will make Zotero dead

When I have an item which type is software, if it has a pdf attachment file, double click this item will cause the whole app dead. If I change the item type to book for instance, it will work normally.

Reproduction: changing an item's type to software when that item has a pdf attachment file, then quit Zotero and reopen Zotero, and double click that item will cause crashes.

Zotero version: 7.0.0-beta.95+694ccecf4
OS version: macOS 14.5 Sonoma
CPU type: Apple Silicon M2
  • That works fine for me, and the item type shouldn't have any effect on this. What exactly do you mean by "will cause the whole app dead"?

    Can you reproduce this in Troubleshooting Mode (Help → "Restart in Troubleshooting Mode…”), which temporarily disables all plugins?

    If so, can you provide exact steps to reproduce from scratch?
  • Thank you! When I switch on the Troubleshooting Mode, the problem DOES NOT EXIST anymore. So it may caused by some plugins, and I'm working on it.

    What I mean "will cause the whole app dead" is Zotero doesn't response anymore, and the Mac's rainbow spinning wheel keeps showing on the screen. Anyway, it may cause by one of my plugins, thanks!
