"Retrieve Metadata from PDF" does nothing

This discussion was created from comments split from: Retrieve metadata from pdf not working (Report 641825093).
  • I have the same problem lately, with an up to date version (5.0.66), and with Zotero having no barriers to Internet access. Namely, when I import an item by drag&dropping its PDF into Zotero, nothing happens whereas normally an item was created based on the metadata. Also manually choosing the "Retrieve Metadata from PDF" option does nothing.
  • Have you tried restarting Zotero?

    Can you provide a Debug ID for an attempt that fails?
  • Ha, hadn't thought of the restarting panacea - turns out to've been enough in this case.

    Thanks!
