  • @henge thanks again. Not sure why your external card would not have permissions granted. It could be a UX thing I've not gotten right yet perhaps? I'm entering a busy time at the moment with a lot of stuff on, both other freelance projects and rese…
  • @henge glad to hear it's all working for you. I'm suprised that cloudme doesn't work. Oh well! It seems that WebDav isn't always implemented in the same way. I'll be going through some more bugs in the beta then moving the changes into the mainline…
  • Hello @henge - thanks for the feedback. Are you using the latest beta or 1.1.8? If it works for Zotero Desktop it should work for Zotdroid. The test function sends an OPTIONS request which perhaps cloudme doesn't respond to, but the download shoul…
  • Hey there everyone. The next BETA version is out: 1.1.9 https://play.google.com/apps/testing/computer.benjamin.zotdr0id This version has support for abstracts in the main listing (I believe a few of you were after that). In addition, there is a m…
  • Thanks! I think I'll add the change in the beta to the mainline, once I've tested out the addition of abstracts and full downloads. cheers Ben
  • I was just about to comment on the WebDav :) The problem is that the exception is an IOException which can be thrown for BOTH local errors like files not being written OR when the WebDav fails. It can be misleading which is why I changed the error m…
  • @zhangyuan05 this must be impossible now. There has to be a factor I've not seen. Ultimately, if the directory fails on initialisation, it will choose one from a selection. On my 4.4 emulated device, it chooses /data/data/computer.benjamin.zotdr0id/…
  • @zhanguan05 then please try the beta release. It should work for you, fingers crossed. Rather than push out a new version for everyone, I want to fix bugs in a separate branch before continuing. That way, we don't inconvenience users who don't have …
  • Hello all 1.1.8 BETA is now out. You can access it here: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/computer.benjamin.zotdr0id Basically, any new features and bug fixes will appear as BETA versions first. I figure that keeps other users from not having …
  • @piom @zhanghuan05 I think I've found an issue. Yet again, it is related to Android Versions. Later releases deal with external storage directories differently. I dont think the current advice from Google seems to apply to older Androids. Im curren…
  • @piom - thanks for that. Is the selector in the webdav settings set to 'on'?
  • @piom @zhanguan05 thanks for the feedback. Are you using personal webdav or zotero storage?
  • @smatthie thanks! I want ZotDroid to be genuinely useful for folks. I use it also, in research, but it's great to know what other folks might need. It's a professional product now, so it's important I get it right. I'm keen to hear about more sugge…
  • Hello all 1.1.8 should be out now, or very soon once the store catches up. @smatthie @rowland.208 @piom this update addresses the issues you've been having. The directories are now handled in a simpler manner. There should be a base directory. Wit…
  • @piom @smatthie @rowland.208 thanks for the updates there. The double-download is very odd - certainly doesn't happen on the test rigs I have here. A few users have reported that the temp directory doesn't seem to work but the normal directory does…
  • @rowland.208 this sounds very much like version 1.1.6, not 1.1.7. I noticed the lack of change in preferences but also it sounds like the failing checks are still in place. Does the about box say 1.1.7?
  • @rowland.208 thanks, that's some more to go on. Were you asked, upon reinstall and running for the first time, to give read /write permissions to ZotDroid? I've noticed that for some Android versions, one needs to ask permission before writing to ar…
  • @rowland.208 Thanks for getting back. When you click the attachment, does it attempt to download it, i.e do you get a synchronizing message with a percentage that increases? In the attachment directory, do you see a number of zip files with an alph…
  • @rowland.208 thanks for the update. This error is intensely annoying because saving a file is not hard, or rather, it shouldn't be. So its 1.1.7 you are using. Can you confirm that your username and userid (towards the bottom) is filled in correct…
  • Hello everyone 1.1.7 is out now. There are two major changes. The first is that the download directory issue *should* be fixed. I've tested here on several emulators and real devices and it seems ok. It turns out some of the checks I make in order…
  • Thanks Piom It's becoming clear this is a major problem for a few folks. I've attempted to fix it with no success thus far. I *believe* it's a permissions error which I assumed I'd fixed (as it passes on all my simulations and devices). A few folk…
  • Hello everyone 1.1.6 is released. This is a minor fix that improves on the speed issue and fixes a minor webdav bug I found. Hopefully this makes browsing collections a little faster for folks. I think it's safe to say that ZotDroid has changed *a…
  • Hello @rdiaz - thank-you for the detailed reply. This is very useful. I will answer each point as best as I can. 1) The issue with the downloading has come up a couple of times. Finding a world readable and writable directory is actually harder th…
  • Hello all Version 1.1.5 is now out. This version completely replaces the OAUTH mechanism. It's a big update! I've had to do this because the failures like the one @henge gets, do keep happening and it's to do with the browser handoff from OAUTH n…
  • Thanks! :)
  • Hello everyone! v1.1.4 is out now This is a massive fix for a small problem - hanging items in groups. @fbennett this should fix your problem if you upgrade, run a sync and then restart zotdroid. I've had to take a long look at how to upgrade dat…
  • Hello all. v1.1.3 is out. I must apologise - in trying to fix the groups, another bug wormed it's way in and got past all my tests and emulators. Essentially, it was causing a lot of download problems for folk. So I'm sorry about that. Groups are m…
  • @maurone thanks for the feedback. The group libraries were not working correctly for a number of users so I've been looking into that. Can you be more specific with your setup? Android version is always helpful, as is any settings you can share w…
  • Version 1.1.2 is now out. This is a temporary installment whilst I add a few more group features which might take a bit more time. Local group / My Library is now the first in the list. There are a few more UX changes as well. @protein%20function …
  • @tobsto thanks for the feedback! I'm not very familiar with group collections - I personally never use them, so I'm a bit slow on getting them finalised. I do note however, that certain attachments aren't supported by Zotero Groups at all. I can't …
