Insert citation results in "{Citation}"-Field; after that Zotero-LibreOffice-Plugin stops working

Hey everybody,

I am using Ubuntu 13.04 with LibreOffice, Zotero Standalone 4.0.17 and the Zotero LibreOffice Integration Extension 3.5.8.

After using Zotero without any problems for more than six month the following bug occurred:

1) Creating a new document
2) Successfully inserting one citation
3) Trying to insert the second citation results only in a field "{Citation}"
4) Any click on the Zotero-Buttons result in nothing

I have already tried to reinstall the Zotero-LibreOffice-Extension. However, this did not help.

Here is the debugging output from Zotero:

Although I doubt that it is useful, the LibreOffice gdbtrace.log can be found here:

Any help would be pretty much appreciated.


  • and it doesn't matter where you insert the citation? e.g. it's not in a table or a figure caption?

    Thanks for this good question concerning my problem.

    Indeed, the problem seems to only occur when I insert the citation in a table (directly in the table, not a caption!).

    Is this a known bug?
