Zotero crashing every time using search (Report ID: 269898781)

Report ID: 269898781

Sometimes when I try to use the search function, I get an error message that says "An error has occurred. Please restart Zotero..." I cannot pinpoint if there are certain terms that cause it to crash or not. I cannot find any patterns.

I have checked for updates and none are needed. I am using version on a Mac running OS X El Capitan (v. 10.11.16).
  • For good measure, check your database integrity from the Advanced → Files and Folders pane of the Zotero preferences. Beyond that, wait and see if this goes away in the upcoming Zotero 5.0. There won't be any more Zotero 4.0 releases.
  • @dstillman thanks for suggesting database integrity. I tried that and no issues were found. I will try to be patient until v5.0 comes out.
