random "Zotero fields cannot be inserted here" in google docs

Hi there,

randomly my google docs give me the above error for a while and then everything is fine again. There seems to be no correlation to any refresh or reloading of the page.
Sometimes during working I just inserted a reference and the next one would give me that error. And after a while - magically - it just starts working again.
Given this highly erratic behaviour I cannot provide more useful informatin other than that I use Zotero 5.0.74 it with google docs on MacOS 10.14.2 and Chrome Version 76.0.3809.132. (I want to stress that I insert into plain text).
Has anyone experienced similar behaviour and might have found a solution?

Best and thanks!
  • Having the exact same issue. It resolved when I used a fresh google document, but soon returned. Especially frustrating as I'm working on a very time sensitive project. Any help on this matter would be great.
  • @vimadai, @patrickelliotcc Do the documents where this happens have hyperlinks (text-based links) in them? How long is the shortest document in which you have had this problem?
