List of item icons and their significance
If this is in the documentation, I didn't see it, but I can't find a list of the icons that appear to the left of an item and what they mean. Or info about what the difference is between a closed and an open circle to the right of an item.
Re empty circles, everything should be stored on my disk. So, I presume that an empty circle for me means that the attachment somehow got deleted or otherwise unmoored from the item. Is that right?
Also, what does it mean when an item or an attachment is grayed out?
Finally, how is it that I have numerous doubled or even tripled attachments? Some that actually link to an attachment, some that bring up the attachment can't be found dialog? The library has not been exported or imported, btw, in case that's relevant.
I'm trying to at last sort out my hierarchies and items, and I'm finding that things are much messier than I expected. And that I know a lot less about Zotero's signifiers than I thought I did.
All my files are purely local btw. I'm not synching anything. But the problem I just identified above seems a different kettle of fish. I can fix it by returning to the site and saving a snapshot. That will be a fair amount of work, but it's doable. The only problem is some of the items are old, and the URLs may be dead. Hopefully there won't be too many of those.
Thanks as always for the rapid reply!
Clicking on the "Snapshot" opens the original site, not a local file.
So, I think that you must be right. Something must have happened in the export/import to convert the attachment. The problem is that there appear to have been a _lot_ of conversions. And quite a number of instances in which the file corresponding to a snapshot can't be found when the snapshot is clicked. (I suppose that the file might still be in the storage folder somewhere, but I've done searches for filenames without success.) So, I think I'm just going to have to revisit many sites.
