Does/can Zotero use CPU Multi-threading?

Sometimes I do a massive amount of processing in Zotero - re-indexing, changing link paths, and other bulk operations on 20,000 files. Windows Task Manager shows it using 1 of my 6 CPU cores - is there any way for Zotero to leverage all of my cores/threads?

    No, Zotero generally isn't able to use multiple cores. JavaScript is a single-threaded language, and most operations in Zotero aren't able to be split off into worker threads. There could be some additional operations in the future that would make sense to try to perform in worker threads.
