  • There is an excellent (unfortunately seems to be idle now) Firefox add-on, Text Formatting Toolbar, for which the developer, Michael B. improved the famfamfam, added a couple of new icons and named the new set as 'Pastel SVG Icons'; licensing all un…
  • This is what I just wished for a few days ago at spartanroc's Improving bibtex topic in the forum:) Thanks a lot for doing this, I have nstalled it and trying right away, Best wishes, emrea
  • Spartan, I wish I knew better; but apparently -and luckily- Robin does:) Here is the first Zotero plug-in that I know of which makes use of your huge contribution to the bibtex support in Zotero: autozotbib @ http://forums.zotero.org/discussion/2261…
  • Maybe you can try repacking the extension: - download the zotero.xpi by right-clicking on the download link and saving from the context menu(do not install it, just download the file) - change the 'xpi' extension to 'zip' (simply rename the downloa…
  • spartan, this is excellent! thank you so much, really. this is a really good way to use zotero sensibly with bibtex (and with bibtex comes -not surprisingly- a plethora of other tools, to me Sciplore/Docear, JabRef, and all..) Especially the ability…
  • Thanks, and as I said, then this would do - for the library consolidation I described. My original suggestion above for exporting with original date added was also focused basically on Zotero RDF format, I still think such an option would make perf…
  • ajlyon, thanks for the suggestion - this would be a relatively easy solution if I didn't have duplicated libraries here and there - and differentiated from each other over time in terms of contents (attached notes, relations, links, etc. to an initi…
  • Thank you - no, back-up was just for example, for which there are already better ways as you pointed out. My point is rather being able to preserve the original Date Added for exported items. Imagine this: I have built up a number of Zotero database…
  • +1 for AbiWord - it is portable, cross-platform, lightweight and yet very powerful. Collaboration features are very promising, and with the newly developed Annotations tool (really, check it:), as well as its robust versioning and styling capabiliti…
  • Count me in! In fact, I want this so much that I tried to make a mock-up of a zotero w/ sidebar sometime ago, and gathered other posts related to zotero sidebar and tabs requests in this forum thread, with some mock-up screenshots on flickr, take a …
  • +1. just to illustrate the issue, here is a linux forum question raised by a (presumably) experienced user: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/ubuntu-63/zotero.oxt-proper-version-for-ooffice-3.1-787772/#post3856655
  • raquelm, there is another add-on doing a similar job and doesn't conflict with zotero, if you like: Split Pannel: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3275 It is not as polished as Split Browser, which would be my first choice, but it pr…
  • @liblamb I know this is a year late comment but just for the record: PDF-XChange viewer, even in the free version lets you annotate in whatever way you can think of, and has always been so. As such you can highlight, box, underline... with it in the…
  • I had the same problem with a springer link: zotero first seemed to save the file and then deleted it. When I checked the permissions of the site, I realised that Springer wouldn't allow my institution to download the article - i.e it wasn't in the …
  • I find any possible integration of mobile readers with zotero fascinating, and I agree that these devices have a main appeal in the academic community. For iLiad (and other readers, it is said) per se, I know that there exists an extension to expor…
  • Even their trac database doesn't show any life sign. sad.
  • It is worth noting that although Prism most prominently focuses at the webapps, it can also benefit from the extensions, with some tweaks. In other words, it is possible to install extensions into prism, so in this case it might be possible to insta…
  • I had posted a mockup for zotero as a tab & sidebar in a separate thread (http://forums.zotero.org/discussion/9187/zotero-as-sidebar-tab-mockup/#Item_0) If you'd like to see the pictures directly, there you go: http://www.flickr.com/photos/4317…
  • @Dan Stillman Zotero has always had in-program attachment viewing for files supported by Firefox either natively (text and image files) or via a plugin (PDFs) I am so sorry, I should have written something like "...while still viewing the item info…
  • @bdarcus yes, that is what makes it possible for not only mendeley but also me - and a lot of (wanna be) coders out there to have a development profile and try to apply changes as to specific needs (zotero plugins, translators, etc). as soon as the…
  • I am also closely following a possible zotero-mendeley cooperation, at least interchangeable databases on both parts. With their latest beta, Mendeley made a step forward in achieving -although one way- integration with the Zotero sqlite database. …
  • Well, I am sorry I think I decided too early: after restarting my pc, the progress windows appears again whenever I start firefox, indicating that zotero is uninstalling old ooo integration extension and installing the new one. In other words, I can…
  • ok, now the trunk works - the options dialog in ff addon correctly displays the "integration preferences" dialogue, and the OOo plugin also works following a restart of both firefox and openoffice. Thanks for the help.
  • I can confirm the same bug with Ooo- zotero integration firefox add-on. The progress window just stalls when I press add-on options from firefox, displaying "Installing Zotero OpenOffice integration" message. I have cleared uninstalled the extension…
  • you can try typing: chrome://zotero/skin/zotero_z_32px.png into your address bar, which will bring up the original extension icon (in .png format) then tyou can try converting the png to ico if you like (use irfanview or any other program availabl…
  • "Ability to type something like [[Smith 2000, Jones 2004]] and have Zotero "read" the document and convert those to Zotero citations, asking you to clear up potential duplicates." RTF scan in zotero beta 2 versions does this - click on the gear ico…
  • I second the idea to be able to read & write pdf metadata through zotero, just as zotero can rename the file from metadata. I have searched for some solution to write metadata into the pdf attachments here in the forum and elsewhere on the web b…
  • thank you! now it seems that we can sync th attachments to zotero servers as well - this is excellent, thank you all! edit: one very minor issue (if it is an issue) is that the mac interface seems to have leaked to the windows version -if this …
  • Zorro, yes, part of my references are imported from another computer, you may be correct. However, both those files I have added from another computer and those I have added recently to zotero while making researches are gone, except for a few pdfs …
  • No, they are not there in the storage folder although they seem to be there in the firefox interface of zotero (by storage file, I meant the "storage folder", sorry for the confusion). I will check troubleshooting again, thanks for your help.
