  • @adamsmith: I can reproduce what you described about downloading raw files from GitHub. This should be an issue with Firefox. Using Firefox on Windows, I get a .txt file when right-clicking "Raw", then selecting "save link as". Chrome doesn't have …
  • @dstillman: There have been reports of similar installation problems that were related to issues with the profile: https://github.com/retorquere/zotero-better-bibtex/issues/1483 @DWL-SDCA: You could rename the .xpi file to .zip and try to open it. …
  • 1. What version of Zotero and Zutilo are you using? 2. Did you try using a different keyboard shortcut for the "add tag" function as I suggested above? 3. For debugging the "add tag" issue further, you could try the following: a) Disable all add-…
  • With BBT, you can use AUX files for creating Zotero collections that contain your cited entries: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/77365/create-bib-file-only-from-papers-cited-in-a-tex-file https://retorque.re/zotero-better-bibtex/citing/aux-scan…
  • Your previous issue with Foxit Reader was resolved after you installed the deb package: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/82436/trouble-with-pdf-viewer-in-zotero-standalone Did annotations work back then?
  • How did you install Zotero on Linux? Using the official tarball or one of the packages? https://www.zotero.org/support/kb/linux_packaging
  • This might not apply to you in case you're doing this: Alternatively, you can use a symlink to sync only the storage directory from your Zotero data directory using the external sync service.
  • i have my zotero storage folder on my icloud drive. See Alternative Syncing Solutions in Zotero's documentation: Storing the Zotero data directory directly in a cloud storage folder is extremely likely to corrupt your Zotero database and should not …
  • i have zotfile installed but "rename attachments" doesn't work for me! See here: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/87072/zotfile-renaming-and-linking-not-functioning
  • The item type wildcard is tied to the Zotero locale (here). So bwiernik is correct, there is no straightforward way. However, ZotFile's user-defined wildcards could provide a workaround. Set the preference extensions.zotfile.wildcards.user in the C…
  • My guess would be that it's actually a memory issue Another possible reason might be that you have broken attachments in your library. But I'm not sure about whether they can break the export. You could check if you have broken attachments in your …
  • I don't quite get it, as these objects are neither standalones, snaps or defective... If you're not selecting a top-level PDF, the error might be related to issues with your cloud storage. There's a related discussion here. Also note that working w…
  • The pdf.js option might be better at preserving the order of extracted annotations as compared to poppler: https://github.com/jlegewie/zotfile/pull/2#issuecomment-3359476 https://github.com/jlegewie/zotfile/pull/2#issuecomment-3363612 Your issue ha…
  • Onedrive is still being finicky Maybe some of this could be helpful: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/onedrive-for-business/sharepoint-online-onedrive-read-only-sync-error/m-p/484374 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/invalid-file-na…
  • I deleted a Zutilo extension from the application support. I don't if this was the gimmick but then Zutilo started to work much better. Could you describe this in more detail? It might be useful for other Mac users. Do you get this issue? For exampl…
  • (The last issue with the "add tag" shortcut has been described here again: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/87091/a-wish-for-zutilo-and-the-return-key.)
  • Let's continue in your original thread and close this one. It's better to keep things in context.
  • I checked my onedrive folders and for some reason they are set to "read only" That could be why ZotFile is not working for you. It's easy to check. Create a temporary folder outside of your OneDrive, e.g., C:\Users\...\Downloads\tmp\. Set ZotFile'…
  • I went back to the software manager, installed it from there (but version 5.0 94, not 95...) You're likely using the snap or flathub package. Both of them currently seem to offer version 5.0.94 only. I would recommend installing the deb package ins…
  • @richarddodd: You could try using the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx preference for fixing this. See here: https://fedoramagazine.org/how-to-get-firefox-looking-right-on-a-high-dpi-display-and-fedora/ This is a related discussion about that Firefox sett…
  • I was pleasantly surprised by the syntax highlighting in the new "Run JavaScript" editor. Thanks!
  • I want to take the Zotero metadata and add it to the PDF properties There's a new tool that writes some Zotero data into PDF files: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/86578/a-new-tool-to-write-zotero-select-links-into-pdf-files It uses a Python l…
  • Zutilo offers some bulk editing functions, see here.
  • You can get separate notes per annotation color with the 'pdfExtraction.colorNotes' preference, see here. This creates multiple Zotero notes with titles such as "Red Annotations". (It won't create separate notes for each annotation, which can cause …
  • The Zutilo add-on provides a "Copy Zotero URIs" function. You can use it to copy URLs for items in Zotero's web library without leaving the desktop program. See here. There's also a local version of these links, see here for details. They have the …
  • It used to only show top level items, which is what I want Switch back to "Title, Year, Creator" in the Quick Search Options.
  • You can also create a new empty Zotero item and only fill in "en" for the Language. Then use Zutilo's "Copy item fields" and paste that into empty fields for your selected items.
  • @fredericky: I would suggest to use the Zutilo add-on for this, see here. Copy {"itemType": "book", "language": "en"} to the clipboard and use Zutilo's "Paste into empty item fields". The "itemType" name/value pair needs to be kept for technical re…
  • With BBT's autoPinDelay option, citation keys will automatically be written to the Extra field.
  • The encoding of the .bib BibTex format is "lossy". I'm not sure what you mean by that. The translation from Zotero's metadata to BibTeX is obviously lossy, but it should give you everything you need. The BBT add-on provides many options for adjustin…
