Available in preview: Zotero PDF reader and new note editor

  • Hi, I'm really liking the new PDF reader.

    One thing that would help my workflow:
    I sometimes highlight an extract of text from a PDF and drag it into OneNote - would it be possible to have a citation be added when dragging highlighted text into an external application?
  • Can the pdf reader suppport double click to select a word
    @linlh: We'll try to do that, yes.

    I would suggest supporting also DJVU. Many papers are provided in that format. I don't know if this would be technically easy/difficult to carry out on the desktop/ipad versions.
  • Would it be possible to save tabs between restarts? I'd like to be able to return to the docs I am reading as we cycle through the betas. I have a vague feeling someone else might have requested that, in which case sorry for the repetition.
  • @b.n.lawrence: Yes, tab state restoring will be added in a future update.
