  • in the last version of translator, on line 124 there is still ...id=[a-zA-Z0-9]... which might probably result in failure in some cases, if I understand it correctly
  • adamsmith, thank you very much for fixing the translator. I've done some more testing and it worked flawless on several dosens of patents.
  • now even better, but on attempt of multiple import of all items from following link http://www.google.com/search?tbm=pts&q=plasma+miller&btnG= - "could not save" error An on one of the patents found, namely http://www.google.c…
  • It works now much better ;) Well, from the search results (patent list) it looks like all data are read in OK. From the "overview" patent view - also. But from "patent page" view like one below - the mileage varies. Sometimes it works…
  • It works sometimes, mostly not. Which is a medium annoyance for my work, as I work with patents rather often. Now I started to play around with translators (hoping to write ones for EU and German patens), and looked first into the Google Patent…
  • After some playing I have found a way to select only one of the duplicate items from the group. This may be useful to check to which collections belong the items, to expand one of them with the triangle (doesn't work yet anyway) etc. The way i…
  • With a new profile, notes can be edited OK. However, deleting localstore.rdf doesn't help.
  • > are you using any personas or themes in Firefox? No, I don't >You did try restarting Firefox? Yes, and even more :) - > OS X 10.6.6 in the meanwhile > (reluctantly) disabled Dan, sorry, I have a tendence to joke at w…
  • (reluctantly) disabled - doesn't help. OS X 10.6.6 in the meanwhile
  • Avram, thanks a lot for you suggestion. It' a nice solution for the problem, I'll use it and tell my colleagues. I don't see any need in composing abstracts too - if they are not added automatically, I add them by copy-paste, but don't edit. I tho…
  • Just for information: I have following 3 backup files in my Zotero folder: zotero.sqlite.bak zotero.sqlite.1.bak zotero.sqlite.72.bak (!) The same default settings as above. The file 72.bak is an older one.
  • Even for a small library (like 100 items), the web access is all but useless without search functionality. These features will come, Anybody knows, is there a ticket?
  • This is addressed in the FAQ Well, kind of addressed. My question was "what about quotas management", and the FAQ answer titled "How much does it cost?". And I have indeed overlooked the following hint: We'll be happy to work with you or your instit…
  • Advanced search in group libraries apparently doesn't work on my computers (Mac OS X 10.6.3, FF 3.6.3, Zotero 2.0.3; WinXP, FF 3.6, Zotero 2.0.3): 1. Select the group library in question 2. Start "Advanced search", create query, click to "…
  • Well, have found a work-around myself. Say, the problematic keyword was "Nanostructures". I've renamed it temporarily to "nanostruktur". In this way, it changed from "yellow" (automatic) to "blue" (manually added) in every item. Then I changed it b…
  • http://forums.zotero.org/discussion/8421/#Item_15 That tag error is a known issue. It happens when you drag an item to a tag that has both manually entered and automatic (saved via a translator) versions. We'll fix that before 2.0 Final. Any work-ar…
  • In the meanwhile I have informed Chris on the results of my tests and he produced the next version of bibutils (v4.4). He also advised me on proper use of bibutils to get unicode RIS & BiBTeX output. I'm not sure when I'd have time to make more …
  • @noksagt Garbage in leads to garbage out. There is no way for Zotero to know how to type this entry. Perhaps bibutils could be improved here, though. Chris (whom I have informed on the results of my tests and this discussion) put out bibutils v4.4 …
  • (EndNote apparently considers semicolon and newline both as legal separators for keywords, and it exports semicolon separated keywords in (its own) XML each separately.) I'm not sure about their origin - but I also got a lot of semicolons in my…
  • he can even store something like "John Doe (advisor)" Surely I could - I could put any kind of information into any field - but I would strongly dislike it. I mean, "Name" field is for names, isn't it? any review-of-the-field article, chapter, or bo…
  • - probably never included (but printed on the front page). Nor "Contributor" or "Translator" - valid autor types for a thesis - are ever included in citations. I would suggest enabling "Editor" author type for theses. After all, advisor in most…
  • @bdarcus the problem is Zotero does have ... no type for non-document communications - but may be introduce one new item type - "undocumented information", which may contain a field "type" (like "thesis" has one). This subtype may be "personal com…
  • Well, now I've spent most of my weekend with the tests - the procedure description and the results can be downloaded from http://home.arcor.de/web_bill_be58/Zotero-Put2web/EndNote_Import_Tests.zip The results overview can be also get separately: ht…
  • A search on Google Scholar with (physical.review personal-communication) results in some 2600 hits, and in substantial part of cases (50% ? ) the "personal communication" is within the paper's bibliography, like [28] SJJMF Kokkelmans and EGM v…
  • Sorry... Well, for "Personal communication", I'd join schneede, who started the discussion: listed the fields the name of the person I communicated with, the affiliation of the person, the date of communication and that "personal communicatio…
  • Well, it's still a less common citation type, and after all I can always edit my manuscript after I've inserted the references from Zotero. "Letter" is not normally used as a reference type in natural sciences (I've never seen), so if you insist I…
  • Does an existing type like "Manuscript" contain those properties? No, in natural sciences and engineering - it does not. "Unpublished result" may be knowledge, which has been distilled from some measurements, computations and discussions, but not…
  • no type for non-document communications So, if I had a number of discussions with a colleague and want to properly cite the source as "Personal communication" - what should I do? Another not that uncommon reference type is "Unpublished result".
  • Me too: in natural sciences at least, "Personal communication" is a quite common reference type.
  • Probably, leaving these non-standard data out on export is the easiest solution.But then some users would, doubtlessly, complain. Why let people input what will NEVER be output?Just to clarify: I've meant omitting these data on export to "other" for…
