  • Well that is no problem, and thank you. Now that I've tried to formalize the differences a bit, maybe I'll be able to get further with creating/modifying a style. If so, I'll post.
  • Hello, I just realized that there is another problem with the in-text citations: IJP wants page numbers of direct citations to appear after the date; these are not included in NPP. Thanks again.
  • Oh, right about the event listener issue for the plugin. I'd read that earlier but then forgot. It would be amazing to be able to check page numbers when adding citations, though.
  • Hi, Since you asked for feedback/troubleshooting from Linux users, I'd like to report that ZoteroQuickLook is working just fine for me on Ubuntu. Here's some information about my environment. I've been using ZoteroQuickLook 0.1.5 on Ubuntu 9.10 wi…
  • Hello, If you drag and drop selected text while holding Control + Shift, the rich text formatting will also be copied and pasted. The drag and drop process is a little strange: after dropping into the target document, it will seem as though the dr…
  • The "Show File" button does work in Ubuntu 8.04 - it opens a Nautilus window in the directory where the file attachment is stored. I wonder if the issue isn't with the integration between Firefox and KDE, in particular because you're using KDE4. I …
  • Try the "Refresh" button? That works for me, anyway.
  • Or, even better: chrome://zotero/content/tools/cslpreview.xul Oh, that's nice, thanks! :) I made a bookmark for csledit.xul once, and I've never looked for anything else since.
  • It's already possible to preview styles in Firefox. Just open the following location in a tab: chrome://zotero/content/tools/csledit.xul
  • 1. Can you view the PDF at all without using Zotero? Anyway, I'm not the best person to help with this issue, since I can't access the PDF myself. 2. I believe the the 00 is just a placeholder for the day field, which does not apply to that partic…
  • 1. Are you subscribed and signed in to the site? Can you view or download the PDF by clicking on its link on the site? What happens if you follow the following link? http://scitation.aip.org/getpdf/servlet/GetPDFServlet?filetype=pdf&id=SJNAAM00…
  • Much of the interface is accessible via the keyboard, though not all (including, most notably, the translator save icon)... Having a keyboard shortcut for the save icon in the location bar is really crucial, it would be great if that could be added.…
  • Firefox 3 is accessible when run on GNOME and there have been improvements in this area when run on Windows. See the accessfirefox.org site, and in particular: http://www.accessfirefox.org/Firefox_3_Accessibility_Features.php The VPAT is here: http…
  • I think it would be just super if pdftohtml could be integrated into Zotero, to automate conversion from PDF to HTML, which could then be annotated. http://pdftohtml.sourceforge.net/ Conversion with pdftohtml is not foolproof, though. One of the di…
  • I imported a group of almost 400 PDFs into Zotero manually last summer. I came up with a method to automate some parts of the process, enough so that the importing was not unbearably tedious. :) Here's the method I used: 1) Make a list of the title…
  • Your output in the last post matches mine with a working extension. You could try setting Zotero to show debug output in Firefox, maybe there will be some clues there. Or maybe one of the Zotero developers will have another approach to suggest. At…
  • You can fix the java error in Tools -> Options -> Java, by selecting a virtual machine for OOo to use. This was unset by a recent Java update in Ubuntu. Otherwise, your output looks just like mine if I reinstall, although I also see the names…
  • Here's one possibility: Close all running instances of OOo, including the quickstarter (system tray), first. For safety, it would be a good idea to make a backup of your OOo user profile before proceeding, by copying the hidden .openoffice.org2 fol…
  • I'm not at all sure about this, but I think that maybe the drag and drop to and from Nautilus and Zotero isn't working because Firefox hasn't migrated to the new GNOME file system, GIO/GVFS. These bugs seem relevant: https://bugs.launchpad.net/fir…
  • The instructions in the link apply only to real ODT files, not DOCs (even when renamed to ODT). It's not possible to convert a DOC, in a binary format, to an ODT, which is principally a textual format, by renaming. The renaming was only for the bac…
  • I was going to suggest the following for trying to repair corrupted ODTs: http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1532 It basically involves unzipping a copy of the corrupted file and editing content.xml. But then I rem…
  • Even when you will be sharing a file with someone who uses Word, it's still a good idea to keep the file in ODT format while you are working on it, and then save it in the DOC format once you are ready to send it to the other person. That way, all o…
  • Click on the Actions menu in the Zotero window (the gear icon), then select Preferences... -> General -> Miscellaneous -> Automatically attach associated PDFs and other files when saving items.
  • I think you should be reporting that to Avira, not Zotero. Here's the procedure: http://www.avira.com/en/support/kbdetails.php?id=173
  • Hi, It shouldn't be necessary to disable NoScript altogether. Instead, you can add zotero://attachment to the NoScript whitelist (in NoScript's Options), and that should fix things. Note that this only is an issue for PDF reader plugins that use ja…
  • If your real concern is with being able to generate unique numbers for items, perhaps this site would help: http://www.famkruithof.net/uuid/uuidgen That site lets you generate UUIDs, or Universally Unique IDentifiers. For more information, see: htt…
  • I wasn't suggesting that you turn them on, I was just trying to respond to what you said about the Ubuntu default. Anyway, there's a workaround if you like. I'll let the Zotero developers take it from here.
  • Are you using "Visual Effects"? They are enabled by default in Ubuntu, on systems that support them. You can check if you're using Visual Effects in System -> Preferences -> Appearance, the tab marked "Visual Effects." So, if you are using vi…
  • Here's a workaround: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Zotero#Window management for the OOo extension I've always needed to use the kind of window rules described in the instructions linked above, or at least, I made rules and then never bothered t…
  • Did you ever figure things out? I case you haven't (and I hope that's not the case!), Synaptic has indicated that your current version of OOo will be removed because it only knows about the version in the repositories for Ubuntu Gutsy, which is 2.3…
