A tool to rename your PDFs

Dear all,

here is a (compiled) perl script that I wrote to automatically rename my most recently downloaded PDF with data from the most recently entered Zotero entry. You may even call this script directly from your browser, see


Let me know if this is useful for you. When following the PDF naming convention we could even bulk update the Zotero database with the correct PDF links.

Have fun, ____________________________
  • Newbie here.... Could you explain how to use the tool you wrote? I would love to rename my existing collection of pdf according to the data in Zotero.

  • this would be quite useful... since most pdfs have meaningless names...
  • Still having no idea how it really works.
    Can someone give me a step-by-step instruction?

    This was great. Thank you many many times for this.
