Dragging entries with same author to word flawed

Dragging entries with the same author name but differenvces in other aspects like title etc. to MS Word will create only the first reference times the number of entries dragges&dropped into Word.

So dragging four entries by Einstein but differences in titles would just give the first of the entries four times in Word.

Is this a known issue and is there some fix?

Thanks in advance!
  • Don't use drag-and-drop for bibliography creation; use the Word integration plugin: http://www.zotero.org/support/word_processor_integration

    Dragging should still work, though. What Zotero version? What style? I can't reproduce this.
  • OK, I ran a test. On one system the error does not occur, on the other it does.

    System with error:
    Win XP, Firfox 6.0, Zotero 2.18, Word 2003 SP3

    System without error:
    Win 7, Firfox 6.0, Zotero 2.18, Word 2007

    Apparently it's thus either related to Word or Windows versions or both.
  • EDIT: No, it's related to the style. On the system with error the default was "Chicago Manual of Style (wihout...)" on the other it was APA 6. Once changed the error disappears.
