Merge duplicate items, even with different item type

I sometimes have duplicate items with different item types:

- Report vs journal article e.g. for Arxiv. I think this might have happened due to earlier imports. Sometimes I also manually put Preprint or some other type, so for Arxiv, I often ended up having different item types.

- Preprint vs conference paper. E.g. for the Arxiv version and then the conference proceeding version. I think I have read elsewhere here that some people suggest to really keep that as separate entries. However, I personally prefer to merge them.

So, this is a feature request to make merging duplicate items with different item types possible.

Btw, it is still right to post this here and not directly as a GitHub issue? (As it is explained in the GitHub issue template: https://github.com/zotero/zotero/issues/new)

    Yes.
  • I support this. Merging duplicates with different item types is particularly cumbersome when there is a lot of them.
