[bug] Manage Attachments/Rename sometimes fails to rename
Hello. I've submitted debug output D1105381710 concerning a bug on a fully updated Windows 10 and Zotero 5.0.97-beta.33+fdcd4e51c and ZotFile 5.0.16, which is that Manage Attachments/Rename sometimes fails to rename. The bug happens rarely, perhaps 1 out of 50 or more documents. It also happens consistently: a file which fails won't ever be able to be renamed no matter what (restart, etc.). The pdf files in question are NOT in use by other programs. The ZotFile notifications stays forever on screen with the filename grayed out, but other files can be renamed afterwards. I haven't found a clear trigger on item titles, authors or other used fields that might generate the bug. Eg I can rename other items in the same collection by the exact same set of authors and no weird characters in use, other than those of the latin1 set.
This is the error you're getting:
If the attachment is not broken, it would be interesting to see if there is something in the metadata that is causing the issue. Select the attachment and run
var items = Zotero.getActiveZoteroPane().getSelectedItems(); items;
You could then try to identify problematic entries or share the results here. Check if renaming works if you move the attachment to a different parent item. If the attachment has a "Contents" note, you could see if deleting the table of contents resolves the issue.
