First, the tabs were taking up too much screen real estate.
My workflow with comments involves copying the extracted comments into Word from all the references I am working with, and then I qualitatively code all those collated quotes. I need the hyperlinks that Zotfile produces so that I can easily click and jump over to the source PDF directly to the correct page number.
Can you include that hyperlink in the citation HTML so that when you copy it out to another application the hyperlink goes with it?
Some kind of an export functionality would require sending the comments to an external file
that would really complicate the process, especially when you're trying to get students to start including this in their own workflow
