  • Thanks, Dan. That does seem to work. I added the items I'm using for the test page - which have entries in the CSL note/Zotero Extra field - to a public group I had previously created for testing - 916124. The four items I have entries for in th…
  • Any updates on the plans to add alternative saving mechanisms? My primary interest is in having an accurate, readable copy of the page content that I can quickly access. My biggest problem with the current full snapshot is that it can take f…
  • Adam and bwiernik, Thanks for your replies. All reasonable points. I was thinking about it from the front-end user perspective and confess that I hadn't fully considered the implications for back-end citation. Full disclosure: I use - and love - …
  • White papers - seconding earlier entries in this thread (Jan 2018); I too gather a lot of material that is published by organizations - companies, research organizations, NGO's, etc. "Report" was suggested as the item type. I've typically used "…
  • Brenton, Thanks. It did not occur to me to think of de-selecting the current item. Ctrl-Click on Windows does seem to do that. The attachment still didn't upload as a separate item. I tried several ways because it appeared that in moving away f…
  • Attaching new files as standalone items? I have the Zotfile Source Folder for Attaching new files set to the Windows download folder. Most often, I want the new file that appeared in that directory to be uploaded as a standalone item, not an attac…
  • Dan, I just want to thank you for the update. I've been using the workaround (dragging the address bar icon to Zotero) since our exchange in this thread. At some point recently, I must have updated to 4.0.28.6. Yesterday, without thinking about …
  • I downloaded and tried Zed. The information available for each item was pretty basic, but it looked promising. After I added a bunch of items to my Zotero library, though, Zed hung up on the sync. No matter how long I waited, it never completed…
  • Any possibility of getting a .APK that could be loaded onto a Kindle Fire? I'd love to try this app, but thanks to the clash of the titans (Google and Amazon), I can't get anything directly from Google Play. I'd second the suggestion about GitHub/…
  • Sonitalele, I don't know what version of the Acrobat reader you are using, but you may be running into this problem if you are using latest Acrobat Reader DC. (I found this information somewhere in the forums and saved it.) You must de-select Sh…
  • Dan, Outstanding! Thank you. Once I opened the Zotero pane within Firefox (with Zotero Standalone closed, of course), the PDF item was created in the library. Since a web page item had downloaded without the pane being open, I didn't realize…
  • Dan, Thanks for the quick response! Most helpful. I tried both methods. I shut down Zotero Standalone, then used the menu button in Firefox to save a PDF. The little window appeared, indicating that it was saving the PDF. However, when I re-s…
  • This is what I want to do as well - create a PDF parent item while viewing a PDF in Firefox. It doesn't seem to be working for me. - I have Zotero Standalone 4.0.27.6 and Zotero for Firefox extension 4.0.27.5 installed. - Firefox has the Adobe…
