minor feature/gui change request: author entry facilitation (existing authors in database)

I am using frequently the handy 'shift+enter' when literally typing new author names, but it would be even more handy if this feature would work also when selecting existing authors from the drop-down list.

Currently, the pointer goes back to the last name of the previous author when pressing 'enter' (or 'shift+enter') after selection of an existing author (with the down/up arrows). Is this meant to be?

Thanks for the nice work and helping us out with great citation management!!
  • I'm seeing this too (on Windows) and am pretty sure this didn't use to happen, i.e. is a regression. I'm pretty sure this is not on purpose.
  • Maybe it is an issue with one or multiple addons. For information, I am using:
    - Zotero Better Bib(La)Tex
    - Zotero LibreOffice Integration
    - Zotero Scholar Citations
    - Zotero Word for Mac Integration
    - ZoteroQuickLook
    - ZotFile
  • I'm seeing the same behavior with no add-ons (other than Zotero integrations of course)
  • This should be fixed in the latest Zotero beta, and the fix will be included in Zotero 5.0.45. Thanks for reporting.
