  • Thanks--trying to get 5.0.8 to work! Since your last suggestion that I'm actually literally running 5.0.17 at times, I've been watching to see what goes on. Sometimes when I click on the Zotero icon to start it up (with 5.0.8 installed), that trig…
  • This worked for me, thanks! Next to the disabled notification there was a link to check for updates. I clicked that, an update to Zotero was found, and I was able to let Firefox install the update for me. After restart, I have Zotero back.
  • Thanks. At present we don't have Chrome at all, but that may be changing soon... We'll keep hobbling along as best we can. Susan
  • So far, for me, shift-drag has worked terrific if I want to paste something into a Web form on the same page. But it's terribly unwieldly if I'm working in multiple applications. I have, say, 20 windows open in 6 applications and when I'm ready to a…
  • A radio button could work. You have to select your citation style and your output format anyway, so you think about all those output choices once, and then you're good to go until you need something else. If those can be visually offset from the oth…
  • How about when you right-click on an item or multiple items you've selected, or a folder, there was an entry in the dialog box right below "Create bibliography from selected item(s)/collection" that said "Create citation from xxx". Thanks for …
  • Thanks. We're an an institution where we have to go through security reviews for any software updates, and keeping up with Zotero itself is near impossible. We're on the verge of getting permission to use 2.1.10 just as you've stopped supporting it.…
  • Ok, thanks, that worked. Is this considered an improvement, and is it permanent? I have a lot of non-expert users at my institution and they rely on the menus and drop downs to find what they need. Distinguishing between bibliography and citati…
  • Are these instructions for 3.0.1 for Firefox? I'm having the same problem and I'm not understanding the instructions to overcome it. For years, I've been able to command-click (or right-click at work) on an item, select a style that gave me Chicago …
  • Thanks. I'm encountering some other problem with the new translator (error message rather than blank) so our workaround for now is to use the "Add Item by Identifier" option since the ISBN is displayed on the Amazon page.
  • This is now happening plain old Amazon for us. I have 2.1.8 installed, and I've tried to update the translators manually but the problem persists. (The item attempts to download, but the download-in-process box is blank, and no record is created.) …
  • Ok, get this. None of the computers had allow third-party cookies enabled, and I tried that on the one that wouldn't auto download PDFs and that still didn't work. But this made me realize that the one where auto download does work has had Firefox/…
  • Hi, Simon, it opened as expected. The only aspect of JSTOR that doesn't seem to be working on the first computer is that Zotero doesn't automatically bring down the PDF along with the metadata, even when the appropriate box is checked in preferences.
  • Same JSTOR article from a computer that did bring down the PDF along with the metadata: The Debug ID is D1212934957. Thanks!
  • From a computer that is not grabbing the JSTOR PDFs: The Debug ID is D1758098412.
  • Thank you, everyone, for the advice--we'll eventually figure something out and/or graduate to 2.x (in time for the 3.x release, no doubt). And especially thanks to Trevor for explaining that workaround to me! When I saw the more shorthand version u…
  • Ok, I'm looking at the older documentation about creating translators (http://www.zotero.org/support/dev/creating_translators_for_sites) so just confirm one additional complicationfor me. Assuming I/we can edit the SQLite db based on info in the JS …
  • Hi, Dan, but is it possible? I am the point-person for Zotero at a large research-oriented institution with possibly arcane computer security concerns and there will be no update to 2.0 anytime soon. Meanwhile, many of us have come to rely on this t…
  • I'm still having the problem, or at least part of the problem, reported in the ticket above (https://www.zotero.org/trac/ticket/1715). For the individual article cited there, or any other for which I do have full-text access, Zotero gives me a cita…
  • The primary difference between B and C is that B has a bibliography, and C does not. That's what I'm trying to draw attention to... what you just said is not what you actually get out of B and C, despite how they are presently labeled. From B you …
  • ps. I couldn't get the hard returns out of that. Sorry.
  • It is the phrases "with bibliography" and "without bibliography" that are confusing. I tried to explain what confused me, above, and ask for someone to explain what it's supposed to mean to me. I'm sorry I didn't find the URL before-- I was respond…
  • Thanks for explaining the book chapter thing... I still think the options for Chicago output are confusing, though. I don't see where "note" comes into it. (Renaming them is a suggestion to make it less confusing to future new users.)
