Multiple files in entries

I just noticed that my entries have duplicated files.

I have no idea why this happens, but could it be related to sync-ing the group to zotero?

Any ideas are welcome!
  • Did you merge duplicates? That doesn't delete duplicate files currently
  • Thanks for your quick support!

    I guess I merged a lot of papers based on the collection “duplicate items”.

    I just merged another one and looks like "merging" is the problem: Shot 2022-02-26 at 11.49.36.png?dl=0

    How do you suggest I should proceed in the future? Not merging anymore?
    I have like over 2000 papers, so if possible I would like to avoid going through them manually.

  • In an upcoming version, Zotero will automatically remove files that are identical when merging. Files that are different (e.g., with watermarks or generated first pages) will remain separate.
  • That sounds great! With “upcoming version” you mean 6?

    I backed some notebooks to merge the files without duplicating the pdf files.
    (Code is on GitHub if someone is interested)
