Sync Error: Note too long (but can't locate note!)


I am currently getting a sync error saying that a note is too long ( Shot 2015-02-16 at 2.58.01 pm.png?dl=0).

However, when I search for the note in Zotero, no results show up ( Shot 2015-02-16 at 2.58.25 pm.png?dl=0).

The same happens in Finder ( Shot 2015-02-16 at 2.58.40 pm.png?dl=0).

If I search for the title of the note in zotero, there are a few files that show up, but none of them have a note ( Shot 2015-02-16 at 2.59.11 pm.png?dl=0).

I have emptied the trash and restarted Zotero, but none of this helped.

Please advise.

  • I'm surprised the search for the item ID didn't work -- you searched in "all fields and tags" mode?
    If so, among the PDFs that get a result for the note text, did you click on them to check that they don't have a note (PDF files can have individual notes, which wouldn't show up in the item view).
    Do you use ZotFile?
  • Thanks for your quick response.

    Yep, searched in "all fields and tags", and "everything" as well for that matter.

    Just double-checked the results to see if any have individual notes, which they don't.

    I do use ZotFile, yes. Could it be related to that somehow?
  • Can you trigger this again, and post here when you do?
  • It's an item in your trash.
  • Awww snap! You are right.

    I checked the trashcan at the very bottom, which is linked to my group libraries (which I only recently set up). Hence the confusion!

    Thanks for helping me out!
