Can zotero allow selective sync'ing of articles?


I have a large library and am interested in sync'ing some of the articles on zotero, is that possible? Actually this is a nice feature currently available on Mendeley. This is useful when you have private articles that you do not want to share them.

  • Yes. The papers that are stored in your "My Library" will not be shared with others. The papers stored in a group library can be shared with others.
  • Waw, that was quick, thanks!

    What about if you have a large library and you do not want to sync all of it?
  • All attachments will be uploaded to the server if you choose to use file synchronization. (You can choose this on a per library basis by adjusting the settings in your Zotero and the group library settings on the Zotero website) There is an option for on-demand downloads where the files are downloaded only when you try to access them.

    Being able to tag selected attachments from My Library for sync to the Zotero server would be a useful feature, though. I too have a large collection, and uploading all of it the server would be superfluous (not to mention impossible: I'm well over the 25 GB Zotero offers as its largest storage plan). For syncing between the Mac and the iPad, ZotFile with iCloud offers a good alternative; but with ZotPad's recent advances, using the Zotero server for selected items, if it were possible, would be starting to look more attractive to me.
  • You can get more than 25GB

    I doubt that selective file syncing will be implemented any time soon. The developers will probably correct me if I am wrong.
