ZotFile - Advanced PDF management for Zotero

  • @darcyparks @jadoff I just pushed a new version with the fix (5.0.15). Let me know if that fixes the problem. Thanks @dstillman.
  • @Joscha Auto-update seems broken for 5.0.14. The Error Console shows these messages:

    [JavaScript Error: "XML Parsing Error: prefix not bound to a namespace
    Location: moz-nullprincipal:{...}
    Line Number 4, Column 5:" {file: "moz-nullprincipal:{...}" line: 4 column: 5
    source: " <RDF:Description about="urn:mozilla:extension:zotfile@columbia.edu">"}]

  • @Joscha @jadoff The new version fixes it for me. Thanks!
  • @Joscha @dstillman The fix works for me as well! Thanks so much for the quick fix!
  • Dear Zotfile experts,
    I am trying to migrate from the Zotero file structure to a custom file structure mirroring my library structure in Zotero using Zotfile. It happens that I have multiple files per Zotero entry e.g. multiple pdfs, xls, jpgs, etc. When Renaming/moving them to the new location all files get renamed and file names on the disk are differentiated by adding a number. In Zotero, however, the multiple and different file types all appear with the same same name and no possibility to differentiate foo1.pdf, foo2,pdf, foo.jpg, foo.xls etc.
    3 related questions:

    Is there a possibility to add the file extension in the name (both in zotero and in the file name) and differentiate multiple pdf - at leas as foo1.pdf, foo2.pdf within zotero?

    Renaming does not work (always) for some files (generally jpgs but I although had some scanned pdfs for which it does not work). The Dialog "zotfile: Unnamed attachments" freezes/remains gray. This happens more often using the Zotfile renaming format but also when using the standard zotero renaming format.

    How can I automatically list or exclude entries with multiple attachments for manuell treatment?

    Thank you all for your help.
