bibtex export has ???? in labels (or nick names)

When I export the Zotero bibliography to Bibtex format, I get ???? in the bibitem's nick names or labels. For example, I have:
title = {Zotero - Quick Start Guide},
url = {\_start\_guide}

in the export bib file. Is this how it is supposed to be?

This is while using 1.0.7 in Firefox 3.0

  • Click Reset Translators and Styles in the Advanced pane of the Zotero prefs to make sure you have the latest version of the BibTeX translator (which isn't being pushed to clients in 1.0.*) that was available as of 1.0.7.
  • Hi Stillman,

    I did that, reset the translators and styles, as you suggested. The problem persists, I get the same ???? in the output.

  • OK, looks like the translator includes year in the cite key by default (though the format is editable), and if the item doesn't have a date, it currently uses "????" instead.
