Attaching file folders, not just files, to a Zotero item
One of my entries/items is a statistical course. This course has files and folders associated with it. The folders are for specific topics within the course. I know how to attach associated files to a Zotero item, but is there a way to attach entire folders and the items in those folders? I would really like to keep the organization of the course sections provided by the folders.
adamsmithWhile you could create a zip file and attach that, it seems clumsy. Why not just keep the folder on your harddisk and link to a file in it. You can then use "Show file" to see the whole folder.
ekrynak@adamsmith I thought about that, but I occasionally use zotero from my home computer and it would be nice to have the option of accessing all attached files. I tend to use zotero to help organize files on my computer relevant to a current project. It would be nice if there was an option for sub-folders for attachments to zotero items. I can't imagine it would be that hard to do, but I'm not a programmer.
adamsmithIt's not trivial, no. You could sync those folders with a different tool (e.g. Dropbox) and then use Zotero's relative link base directory function (advanced tab of the prefs) to make sure they work across computers.
HalfwitI also would like this feature.
