  • You can add illustrators to the Extra field: Illustrator: Last name || Given name See: https://www.zotero.org/support/kb/item_types_and_fields#citing_fields_from_extra If this will be picked up depends on your style.
  • Integrating a citation in the narrative flow of your text will be supported---hopefully in the not so distant future. But, as @adamsmith points out, this will most likely not entail mixing different citation formats (numerical and author-year), and…
  • Basically yes. Zotero updates find there way into Juris-M on a regular basis, but not always the next day or so. Juris-M is on 5.0.85m3 currently, whereas Zotero is already on 5.0.87.
  • The basic procedure for editing styles is the same in Juris-M and in Zotero, so no need to switch back.
  • If you want to use this field, you can of course add it to your style. You'll basically need to add in the appropriate place. You can find instructions for style editing here: https://www.zotero.org/support/dev/citation_styles/style_editing_step-by…
  • Also let me add that I don't think this is a particularly useful choice as this will lead to confusion if you have two authors with the same last name in your document. In any case, that's not official Chicago/Turabian, and as adamsmith has already …
  • According to many claims both should be compatible: http://cmosshoptalk.com/2015/02/03/for-students-is-turabian-style-the-same-as-chicago-style/ https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/help-tools/Resources-for-Students.html => "The two books are c…
  • Skimming through the other thread mentioned by dstillman, that looks like a useful addition, necessary for style agnostic data entry and for switching styles easily. Would be great if that was added. I'm fine with using JSON files here. The other u…
  • So, what does that mean? Is it up to @fbennett to make this work in vanilla Zotero again? Or @dstillman: is this something for the Zotero devs?
  • Oh, and the original discussion being here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/zotero-dev/abbreviation$20filter|sort:date/zotero-dev/ThI8EnExw1A/ITqu
  • Ok, here's the link to the discussion: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/zotero-dev/6JnDJappshc/hGQO1ExhDAAJ > The sticking point is that the Filter holds abbreviations in an SQLite database. Access there is now async, but the processor nee…
  • So this means no?
  • Ok: Here's a style that changes locales: https://gist.github.com/denismaier/ce7bec68491beef2a97a3078b897a20d You'll need to set the document language to English (even if the main language is Hebrew), and add "he" to each Hebrew reference => Hebr…
  • What style are you using?
  • Ok, I see. You'll need to use CSL-M where you can test for the language of an item. That means you'll need to edit you CSL style. Which one are you using? Do you know how to do that? The relevant information is here: https://citeproc-js.readthedocs…
  • You might want to have a look into Juris-M, which is a Zotero variant with special multilingual needs. Also for bidi docs, I'd advise you to use LibreOffice instead of Word as the former seems to be more robust in this regard (https://github.com/Jur…
  • The element. It should look like this: Of course, you can adjust the other attributes...
  • @smirnov_dd First, if you use CSL-M, you should set the version to "1.1mlz1". This will start the processor in CSL-M mode. Otherwise, not all features might be available. Then, your "ibid." code is in a layout node for locale "en". So, the item lo…
  • First, you'll find information about style requests here: https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles/wiki/Requesting-Styles Second, Zotero has limited support for legal citations. You should have a look a the Zotero-fork Juris-M (https://jur…
  • While you can't do this with the official CSL you can use the extended CSL version CSL-M. CSL-M has a condition (Note: you might need to change the style version to "1.1mlz1". Also, Zotero will tell you that your style is invalid when you install …
  • Same as here: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/82784/csl-choose-if-date-part-day-is-not-null (posted just now) While you can't do this with the official CSL you can use the extended CSL version CSL-M. CSL-M has a condition (Note: you might ne…
  • Great. Thanks. One more passing test.
  • By the way, this comes from Turabian quick citation guide (https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/turabian/turabian-notes-and-bibliography-citation-quick-guide.html)
  • As per @bwiernik, the best solution would be to use a `classic` item type, which at the moment exists only in the extended CSL-M syntax. You can, however, use that in Zotero as well. If the style is for your personal use only (i.e., you don't inten…
  • Yes, you could use original-author for this. I'm not sure, but I think this field isn't currently used by the standard styles and it's not really clear what the purpose of this is anyway. What you need is something like this: …
  • Also, it would be helpful to know a bit more about your requirements. Perhaps someone knows a similar style.
  • Currently, I see two options: Either: - cite ancient authors manually in the notes - add the editions you've consulted as normal books to the bibliography. (Possibly, you will want to have a separate bibliography for ancient works, anyway.) Or: - …
  • @bwiernik I am not sure. I had a similar issue when editing this style (https://www.zotero.org/styles/universitat-bern-institut-fur-musikwissenschaft-note). Two examples for musical records: Mendelssohn[-Bartholdy, Felix]: Concerto for Violin, Pia…
  • In order to help here we'd need to know a bit more: What do you mean by "rough"? Why aren't you happy with the current results? What is the expected result? And---like @djross3 has already asked---were these footnotes created with Zotero?
