lock zotero database/read-only mode

Zotero automatically saves changes in all items. As such it would be interesting to have a read-only mode while browsing the database, in order to avoid unnoticed and accidental changes, in the bibliographic fields, in the notes, etc.

Perhaps a clickable lock-symbol next to the "new collection" symbol (or anywhere else on top) could be interesting.

(Yet to be able to create a saved-search in the read-only mode should perhaps still be possible.)

  • renewing this as it would be handy to lock collections. For instance, I am performing a systematic literature review and knowing that I could not add/remove items by accident would be helpful.
