  • Ok, I assumed that clicking save from the pdf was more convincing since it 'proves' I actually have access. Saving from the article page fails the same way as what I'm experiencing when you're not logged in properly. I just wanted to exclude a logi…
  • Hi, The pdf entry does not show up at all, so option #2. I opened the pdf from https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7797450. While opening the pdf, the zotero icon briefly changes to a pdf icon. While viewing the pdf, the zotero toolbar icon was no…
  • Hi, Yes, it's an individual subscription. It used to work for years, but of course this can be a result of changes on the IEEE end of the chain. Is there any way I can provide more detailed information that is helpful? Paul
  • I conclude from what you say that there should be no spaces in the zotero pages field, regardless of how and where it is exported to? Is it then possible to filter the field when editing is finished? Paul
  • Do you mean this is the wrong forum? Paul
  • Hi, The answer to your question is probably: sloppy manual entry. To me it feels natural to enter the range with spaces. I don't understand what you mean by " incorrect for citations and other export formats." I think most citation styles want this…
  • Hi I do appreciate the work being done on better bibtex, but the original suggestion seems to be ignored. Just to repeat: Is it a good way to fix the capital-greek casing issue by changing "\u03A3":"$\\Sigma$", // GREEK Sigma to "\u03A3":"{$\\Sigma$…
  • Hi The 123 ---- 432 is obviously a test case Your translation to exactly how I like it. Thanks! Please send a notification when it is released. Paul
  • Ok, after a bit more reading, I think there are two problems in the bibtex.js export filter. Consider the earlier export example title = {$\Sigma$-$\Delta$ {Modulators}--{Stability} {Analysis} and {Optimization}}, - Greek letters are not case protec…
  • ...which is why I opened this discussion. >if you capitalize words those are assumed to be words you want to be capitalized The problem here is that most of the items in my database were auto-imported from a web browser, not typed by me. Should …
  • Hi, I just checked. The title (no`span'-stuff, just the plain greek characters ): Σ-Δ Modulators--Stability Analysis and Optimization becomes title = {{$\Sigma$}-{{$\Delta$ Modulators}}--{{Stability Analysis}} and {{Optimization}}}, with better …
  • Hi, With similar I meant that BBT adds curly braces around a math environment, which prevents changing of the Sigma and Delta from upper to lower case. This is similar to the change in bibtex.js that I suggested: "\u03A3":"$\\Sigma$", // GREEK Sigm…
  • Hi, Well, the original question suggested to edit bibtex.js. I don't think that file is used by better bibtex. Better bibtex seems to use a similar trick since it generates {{$\Sigma\Delta$}} in the bib file. The suggested better bibtex solution wi…
  • Hi, Yes, quite obviously this works. However, the question was posted for standard bibtex export using bibtex.js, not better bibtex. Better bibtex has other issues. Is there a reason not to implement my suggestion in bibtex.js? Best regards, Paul
  • Hi, I missed that the 'span' command was actually parsed in the above reply, so what I meant is that when I use the proposed method enclosing the Sigma in 'span' tags, I get gibberish. Best regards, Paul
  • Hi, I tried the Σ method, but I do not get the desired results. Instead, I get: @phdthesis{risbo_span_1994, address = {Lyngby}, type = {Ph.{D}. dissertation}, title = {{\textless}span class="nocase"{\textgreater}$\Sigma${\textless}/span{\textgrea…
  • Hi, I have webdav working when attachments are stored in the default location (/storage/emulated/0/Documents/ZotDroid). However, I wish to use an SD card for storage. When I change the configuration to /storage/0000-0000/ZotDroid (this is on a samsu…
  • Oops, you're completely right, I did upgrade manually and it only happens when I'm in 'my library'. I was not aware that 'my library' is not a collection in the same sense as the user defined collections. Thanks very much for the support! Paul
  • It happens on my work desktop and my work laptop. I will try to confirm on my home laptop (windows and linux) but so far this behaviour has been consistent over zotero restarts and system restarts on all the computers I have tried it on. New featur…
  • Of coarse I verified that I had 'my library' selected, with the same effect. What I meant is that it goes wrong every time for me, not only in the rare occasion that I have duplicate items selected. The chance of having this problem in the first wee…
  • to dstillman: Typically I have either 'my library' selected or a subcollection (e.g. 'audio' in the case of aes papers) I seldom look in the unfiled or duplicate collections. Paul
  • Regarding the question if bibtex import works: - I usually copy the bib file contents to the clipboard and then import from clipboard in zotero. That works. - When I import a bibfile through file->import... the item is imported but in a newly cre…
  • I posted debug info (ID: D958642537) for clicking the 'import into bibtex' on the aes page I quoted above. Zotero was updated to 5.0.21. I still get just the 'importing into bibtex' message. Paul
  • Hi I agree the method zotero uses is too limited (described here: https://www.zotero.org/support/duplicate_detection ) If you import http://ftp.math.utah.edu/pub/tex/bib/tugboat.html you will find lots of duplicates, which are actually different ins…
  • Hi, First of all I reject my suggested addition of \u03BC (micro sign) since I found it was already defined in the list with greek letters as \mu. I was thinking about the implementation of preserving the upper case of greek letters. Ma…
  • To react on your remark about masterthesis, all the sources I find mention both mastersthesis and phdthesis As far as I understand Oren Patashnik is the (original) developer and he wrote in 1988 http://ftp.snt.utwente.nl/pub/software/tex/biblio/…
  • Hello, Glad to see such a fast response. I just found an other issue: Σ-Δ Modulators--Stability Analysis and Optimization is translated to {$\Sigma$-$\Delta$ {Modulators}--{Stability} {Analysis} and {Optimization}} which is correct, b…
  • Hello, I know this thread has been inactive for some time, but it seemed to be the appropriate place to ask my questions anyhow. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I have a number of bibtex export issues, a few of which I have fixes for whi…
  • I found the same issue yesterday. It always worked when I was a more active user (until about a year ago). Tried to demo zotero to a customer and it failed :-( D&D does also _not_ work on - Texniccenter DOES work in - TeXworks
  • Hi Thanks again for taking this seriously. Maybe the windows designers thought the change date should only be about the file contents, not the metadata such as file name. I think it is not a bug then, is it? An other suggestion: the …
