  • Zotero doesn't contain an acroread PDF plugin and the official binaries contain no trojans. The most usual issue is typically that you've taken a webpage snapshot from a site that serves malware; this would be found in the storage directory. There…
  • The js files are part of webpage snapshots. The snapshots may not render as expected if they weren't there. The zip files are used too make upload of the snapshots more efficient (fewer files to upload).
  • That means I have 285,2 MB of metadata? (metadata: name, autor, ISBN, etc.)No. There's no metadata limits. Did you have attachments stored in your zotero directory in the past (perhaps before using something like zotfile)? Empty your trash. Sync …
  • The export is consistent with the sync. Perhaps you're not storing attachments in your Zotero directory, but are merely linking to files (possibly with the aid of something like zotfile)? If you're using linked files, they won't sync. If they're al…
  • Because the WebDAV was verified and you have a partial upload, I'd follow the guidance given in the knowledgebase I linked to: If the file hasn't been uploaded correctly but syncing completes on Computer A without a sync error, go to the Sync→Reset …
  • Don't run zotero as root. There's no need to. Extracting the tar will give you things you should be able to run from your home directory as a regular user on the most recent version of most popular linux distros, including Debian. https://www.zot…
  • CainPY: In the future, please start a new thread for new isues. This one is likely to be moved. The prop/zip files are as expected for WebDav syncing, but you show only 5 synced attachments. Have yoou let the sync complete? Have you verified you h…
  • Zotero has no function to convert pdfs to webpages. It does have the ability to take snapshots of webpages (in addition to downloading pdfs). Could you be looking at these snapshots? Are there any pdfs in the storage folder? Have you used zotfile o…
  • I think DWL-SDCA's point is the same as the one I tried to make in the other thread. There's a cost to supporting code beyond the effort to just get it into the codebase in the first place.
  • You're dismissing the feature requests/desired user cases that others have made here and lobbying that yours somehow has a higher priority or that your workflow is the same as most of the workflows out there. I'm sorry, but I just don't see that. I…
  • I can think of no other reference manager that does what is proposed. That's not a reason to not do something. But it does hint that we should be wary of creating non-intuitive interfaces. The author-only examples given in this user story don't see…
  • Right. No idea if you'll have less functionality over time compared to what you get when you first buy endnote or not. But users of past versions have seemingly arbitrarily less functionality when compared to the latest/greatest version. See, e.g. …
  • Endnote has historically limited the number of references you may sync and the number of people you may share your online library with for legacy versions. So: you may also want to factor in the cost of upgrades over time. For group sharing, endnot…

  • Perhaps you can discuss this with Endnote Support to see if they have good/easy-to-use tools to fix the data that is stored within Endnote? At the least, they should understand any limitations of their program that may have led to your issue in the…
  • Are they listed on separate lines in endnote? Please provide a minimal example of something that fails to import as expected in zotero. But it sounds like your endnote data is less than ideal or (much less likely) that you need to edit/replace the e…
  • https://www.zotero.org/support/kb/importing_formatted_bibliographies
  • It seems like both commands should produce the same output. It isn't possible because the create bibliography you are using relies on CSL that isn't able to access all features of the generic javascript translator that gets called for export. Howev…
  • Zotero is able to import either. Endnote XML is a newer and richer format, so may preserve a bit more than RIS when exporting from Endnote. Endnote XML is likely a better "default" format, but either should bring in 90+% of what you'd like. Note …
  • the old sqlite db is associated with the old account.Not really. There's nothing that is really account specific. You can stop syncing, setup a new acct, and your first sync would push all that informing to the new acct.When switching accounts zoter…
  • You're not going to use sql to access. But yes: itemKey and collectionKey are both exposed. Tag IDs can be the literal tag, so it is unclear to me how you're using that.
  • I assume you're still using Office 2013 as you stated a while ago in another thread. The most current version is 15.0.5041.1001, which was released on June 12, 2018. Not sure if that will fix things for you, but it is worth trying. Their April upd…
  • You wouldn't be the first person to have both programs installed & that's just as good of a choice as others. Per https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/49349/endnote-and-zotero-in-the-same-document you can [insert] references using different ref…
  • Please start a new thread. But, quickly: There have been no changes to the Endnote XML translator, Zotero does not import .rtf (and it seems likely that EndNote doesn't really export EndNote XML as an .rtf file). It may be that the EndNote-based re…
  • There's no lockout. Files will just stop syncing.
  • The documentation is correct and clear. Limits are only applied to the syncing of attached files.
  • 'CN' is mapped to Zotero's Call Number.
  • You were looking at the website before. Are you still looking at the website now? If so, are you mistaking the 'edit item' icon for the 'add item by identifier' button that is only in Zotero Standalone? Have you launched Zotero Standalone and set …
  • Please see the guidance on requesting new CSL styles. There are two specific references that you need to use: https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles/wiki/Requesting-Styles
  • Q2: I admit I'm less familiar with GS/Highwire (I've developed to every other standard/format listed in this thread, but not this one yet). But I believe that these embedded tags are also meant to describe the single page you're on instead of multi…
