  • I also use a workflow where I split out the extracted annotations. While it is fine to do it manually for small references, I also find it is tedious for longer ones. I have a workaround for long text where I use a text editor to split the notes us…
  • I thought this looked like just the thing - I am trying to figure out an easy way to get Ulysses to play with Zotero and found some of the tutorials a little intimidating. I've carefully followed the instructions for the Alfred workflow, which were …
  • I got the same error as well (running Zotero 1.0 on iPad). Debug ID: 4kikPdjAp9QZ. I had tried sharing using the Zotero extension from the web and received an error in the share extension ‘can’t sync collections’. I opened the Zotero app and it star…
  • If you only have a few small edits to make to an existing style, try using the Visual Citation Editor: https://editor.citationstyles.org/visualEditor/. You can upload the closest style you have, click on the bit of the sample citation you want to re…
  • Ah apologies - you're right. I had been looking at Zotero with the sidebar closed, and had imported the journal article from my iPad while testing the new iOS app, where I had been using the 'select' and 'highlight' option, which doesn't give the op…
  • Wow! This new feature is really fantastic, and will really streamline my workflow. Thank you all so very much for all the hard work you are doing to make this incredible tool. I have one small request: can the option to tag an individual annotatio…
  • Following up on my long post before - Just installed this now on my iPhone 12 mini and it crashed only once this time, bug report ID 905482601. The phone also has an exchange server linked so I’ll try on an older device which isn’t linked. Also on…
  • First, thank you so so much for this! I've been using Zotero almost since the beginning, and as an avid fan and evangelist, want to congratulate the team for all the exciting work over the past few years - the improved PDF metadata, improved design…
  • Yes @AlexanderSavenkov you're right - if people are still moving folders around that won't work, and if you've got a lot of files already it can be quite laborious (although not a lot more than storing the PDF files). It all depends on how you use i…
  • Thanks dstillman - I thought it would, and so am glad I merged on the assumption that this would be the case! The round-tripping to RIS is definitely a workaround, but I do find it useful when I've just imported from a database that doesn't have the…
  • A similar issue I run into is sorting by report number, which I note is mentioned at the beginning of this thread. I use report a lot for all kinds of documents because of the fact it has a number field. At the moment I have to use a hack of modifyi…
  • I have definitely had issues previously but just wanted to report that we've created multiple documents recently on OneDrive, with Zotero and some fast and furious collaboration at times, and did not have any drama. A couple of times I got an error …
  • It sounds like your bibliography doesn't include URLs by default. You can try using the 'search by example' in the Visual CSL editor here: https://editor.citationstyles.org/searchByExample/ to find a style that includes all URLs by default. Alternat…
  • I used to use Papership but it stopped working for me some time ago. I use Zutilo (which is great), but the other trick of exporting items into the .RIS format and then using a simple Search/Replace to edit the fields and then re-import the referenc…
  • Second that - Zotfile is what you are looking for. Zotfile allows you to use most external PDF editors.
  • Hi Larry, I recommend using the Visual CSL Editor for quick fixes to styles without touching code: https://editor.citationstyles.org/visualEditor/. You can load your style file there, and look at the sample data (if you need more, you can also selec…
  • Yes, there is! You can export the relevant records into a text or code editor using the .RIS format, and then use a simple Search/Replace function to convert the two letters that signal the Report Number into the Call Number using the RIS Format: ht…
  • I'm also a big fan of the Visual Code Editor, which can help with this: https://editor.citationstyles.org/visualEditor/. If you put in the style, you can click on the sample entry for the item type you want to copy, and then you can create the new e…
  • If you just don't want to see them, you can hide them, or if you just want to delete all the automatic tags, you can do that too. You just go to the arrow to the right of the search bar on the tag pane (next to the colours), right-click and choose t…
  • In the meantime, can I suggest that if you are interested mostly in reading papers, then the very handy Zotfile plugin is great: http://zotfile.com/ Also, you can at least save to your Zotero library using the web bookmarklet too.
  • If you are using OneDrive (and I assume Google Drive/Dropbox), you can attach a link to OneDrive/Sharepoint. You just copy the shared link and 'attach' that link. This works for me in the group library and then OneDrive takes care of ensuring you ha…
  • I agree with this as an option - the Web Library is beautifully designed and much better than other workarounds. Currently, it works to open the library in another webpage (which I am reasonably happy with, better than dealing with BibBase), but you…
  • Thanks @dstillman - your suggestion worked for me.
  • Meraine - it depends a little on the web scraper used. For example, the Guardian has clearly identified itself as a news site. At one point I had submitted an ABC News scraper which fixed this issue but forgot about it - may get back in and see what…
  • Hi micheil - Apologies, I'm in and out of Zotero depending on research projects but have added in the code as dstillman suggests, so hope that helps!
  • I'm also having this issue with a template I'm using. The problem does not occur if I insert the citation inside an existing citation, but only when I add in a new citation. It is easy enough to select all and apply the footnote style, but wondering…
  • For anyone else who comes upon this thread, you can also easily enable quick search to search subcollections now by going to the 'View' menu and ticking the search subcollections feature (found in another thread). While this has solved my problem a…
  • There is a way to do this, if you don't use too many other jurisdictions. For example, I have edited the AGLC style to format 'Hearings' as Hansard (as we don't otherwise use other types of hearings). The fields are all there, you just have to add a…
  • Oops sorry the previous comment didn't display the code. The code you are looking for begins in the field, and starts with else-if position="subsequent" and ends with else-if.
