  • Seems like it might be better on the Wikipedia page for RIS. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RIS_(file_format)
  • I would note that JSTOR should still works with Zotero 1.0.10, just not through the icons in the location bar. Just use JSTOR's export citation function, which their new site design makes easier than ever to use. With just a click or two more yo…
  • Recreating the collection from the web view was a great idea. There are some very old tickets about undo functionality. Much of the need for this functionality was taken care of with the trash can. With that said it remains an issue for collection…
  • You delete items by selecting them in the center column while viewing "My Library" and hitting the delete key. This will put them in your trash can. You right click the trash can to permanently delete the items. Just to be sure we are on the same …
  • Zotero does not have a way to set the kinds of relations you are talking about between items. So there is no way to say item a is A chapter in book B. There was a lot of talk about doing something like this a while back, but at least for the time be…
  • It sounds like you have a good sense of your options. There is no way to undo removing a collection. Now, none of the items were deleted, so you can reconstitute the collection. If you do decide to reset to your last sync you will lose anything you…
  • Such functionality does in fact exist. http://www.zotero.org/support/rtf_scan
  • @jasonpuckett Thanks for pointing the EBSCO rep you spoke to to this thread. If anyone else has contact with EBSCO reps please give them the same advice. @ajlyon do not feel bad about not having the time to dig into the translator at the moment. L…
  • Thanks for reporting this. I added Tennessee to an existing ticket and upgraded the tickets priority. https://www.zotero.org/trac/ticket/1603 If you know of any other libraries using Primo v 3 please post links here. The more versions of an impleme…
  • Zotero really only has two possible roles for users in groups, members and admins. With that said, there is a implied third role for public groups, viewers. If you make your library public anyone can then view the library items from the webpage, su…
  • Strange, I downloaded your file and retrieve metadata from PDF worked just fine for me. It even got the right article.... Goff, D. C., Lamberti, J. S., Leon, A. C., Green, M. F., Miller, A. L., Patel, J., Manschreck, T., et al. (2007). A placebo-co…
  • I think you might be asking for something Zotero can't deliver. Your best will likely be to go back at the end of your writing process and make some manual tweeks to these citations. However, I can't say for sure without a bit more information. Co…
  • I think you are on the right track. % does should get you where you want to go. For example, it you set up a advanced search where Item Type is Book and Call Number does not contain % you will get a list of all the book items you have that do not ha…
  • 1. With office 2008 for Mac you will find the functions in the scripts menu not the toolbar icons. See http://www.zotero.org/support/kb/no_toolbar_in_word_2008_plugin 2. in-text vs. footnotes is controlled by the bibliographic style. For an example…
  • I don't think there is a ticket for this yet so I opened one. Looks like encyclopedia articles are increasingly getting DOIs as well so I added those to the ticket too. https://www.zotero.org/trac/ticket/1716
  • There is not a particularly easy solution to your problem. Syncing is not going to bring over linked files. Now, if you were using the same operating system you could simply copy the files over to your new computer and make sure they are in exactl…
  • Strange, but confirmed. Adding a item by ISBN to a group library via "Add item by Identifier" resulted in the item being added to the group library. Adding an item by PMID to the same group resulted in the item being added to My Library. I opene…
  • Changing Zotero item types and fields is problematic and not suggested. If I were you I would just use editor.
  • I took a quick look at this and could not replicate your issue. If I am looking in one of my collections and use the look up by identifier button I end up with a copy of the resulting item in that specific collection. I can also see that item in M…
  • In particular, is there any data related to a conference poster that is different from a presentation or a conference paper?
  • The RIS field for notes is N1, so if you get your Endnote RIS export to set your custom field type show up with N1 in front of it Zotero should pull all those notes right in.
  • Setting aside for a moment any changes to Zotero's duplicate function there is a relatively straightforward way to tell which item is the dup. The easiest way to see which is the dup is to add "Date Added" to your columns in the center pane. The dup…
  • If you click on the trash can at the bottom of the left column you should see your deleted items. You can then click click on any individual item, or select multiple items and click the "Restore to Library" button at the top of the right column. Ed…
  • Ok, I swapped out the images for "What does Zotero do" and "Saving a Web Page." I think those were the only ones that showed old buttons. Your second request is also a good idea. Clicking on icons does take you through the tabs, but each of the th…
  • Ok, I added a "How do I open Zotero" section to the quick start guide. I am also working on adding some step-by-step instructions on adding sync credentials in the Firefox extension on the validate page that loads up after the registration page ht…
  • It sounds like you are also running the Zotero Google scholar plugin. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/14667/ Does disabeling that plugin help your performance? In the future please don't double post.
  • The first request is relatively easy to accomplish with current functionality. When you move items from a personal library to a group library the items are completely severed. So if you just keep actively using your own personal library and then dra…
  • Yes identifying individual differences is the next step. For more info on this process see http://www.zotero.org/support/requesting_styles
  • You can select multiple items from the middle column and drag them onto any tag in your tag selector. See http://www.zotero.org/support/tags
  • Thanks for doing some leg work on this harlleye. You have identified a good edge case that Zotero does not currently support. For the foreseeable future these kind of edge cases are going to require manual tweaking.
