Quick copy not creating a real citation

When using the quick copy (shift+drag) in Word, it does not create a citation in the same way that the plugin does when you click Add/Edit citation. With the quick copy the citation text is correct, but when I try to create a bibliography i get an error saying that i need a citation before making a bibliography. Do I have to stop using the Zotero plugin in Word for quick copy to be able to work correctly?
  • It's the other way around — if you're using the plugin, you shouldn't be using Quick Copy at all. The plugin inserts active citations into the documents that can be used to generate a bibliography. That's the point of it. Quick Copy is just for copying text to places where there's no plugin.
