  • I've had this problem for every update on Zotero for Windows since 5.0 (now on 5.0.54). On startup, I'm told that "update could not be installed (patch apply failed)" and am referred to the Zotero website for a manual update. Zotero then refuses to …
  • FWIW, I recently switched from macOS to Windows, and I was able to add the same EPUBs (which had been sitting on Dropbox) to the Windows version of Zotero without a problem using ZotFile: I dragged them in and Zotfile moved them to my Papers folder …

  • Hi there, I'm having trouble attaching .epub files to items. Other file types, such as .pdfs, are fine and create a moved and renamed file attachment as expected, but when I drag-and-drop an .epub file onto an item, nothing happens. If I try to man…
  • I'm not sure if everyone knows this now—I found this thread while Googling the same problem—but Zotfile does this almost perfectly. Install it, tell it where to move your files to (I chose the same folder my existing files were already in), then imp…
