Orphaned citations in Word document

This discussion was created from comments split from: References missing from Zotero library but present in Word plugin.
  • Good morning,
    I am working on a word document in which I had entered sources via Zotero.
    I now realise that some Zotero sources (active field codes) appear in the document but no longer exist, I don't know why, in my personal library.
    Is there a way to update the personal library in the Zotero application to include those Word sources that no longer appear there?
    WHAT TO DO IF "SHOW ITEM IN MY LIBRARY" DOESN'T APPEAR IN A REFERENCE CITED IN WORD? HOW TO SAVE THE REFERENCE?

    THANK YOU?

    You can use Reference Extractor to reimport the data into Zotero, but those won't be linked to the citations, so you'd have to replace the citations with the new items, being sure to select from the library section of the citation dialog search results rather than the Cited section.

    Note that you can also just continue using the citations from the Cited section, but they won't be in your library and you won't be able to change the metadata if you need to.
