Adding a button in web library to copy citations to clipboard (footnote format)

Would it be possible to add a button to Zotero web library for copying citations to clipboard (equivalent of Ctrl+Shift+A in Zotero Standalone)? That would help a lot for iOS writing until the iOS app comes in. There is already a button to copy bibliographic reference (Ctrl+Shift+C) and there is still room in the iPad view for another button...
  • Yes, we have this in ZoteroBib, and I've always assumed we'd add a similar feature to the web library. (I believe this is what #203 is about, though @tnajdek can confirm.) There's been some disagreement about whether this is a useful feature, since it's limited to non-numeric styles that don't use "ibid.", given name disambiguation, or other context-dependent style feature, but I do think it's useful for certain situations. (It could even be used with something like the RTF Scan style.)
  • I can confirm this is planned, Github issue Dan linked in the post above is correct. I don't have an estimate yet but shouldn't be too long.

    Great, thank you! Among other uses, this feature will allow iPad users to create citations manually while we are waiting for the iOS version of Zotero. I also write in Ulysses and don't use cite-as-you-write at all, so Ctrl+Shift+A is the way I always generate my citations. So this feature is definitely useful for me.
  • We've added a new button that will generate citations for selected item(s) in web library.
  • Where would we find that button? Thanks.

    It's a button in the toolbar, located between "export" and "create bibliography". Please remember that this conversation is about the Web Library, a browser-based version of Zotero.
