At this moment, the functionality of Zotero in LibreOffice Writer is much worse than MS Word due to limitations in LO Writer.
Even though LibreOffice Writer has the option to apply field shadings, it does not do the same for bookmarks, so it is difficult to distinguish citations in text. This is because there's no shading for Bookmarks in LibreOffice, which also, unfortunately, makes it much easier to accidentally corrupt/edit citations in-text.
Moreover, I used to be able to simply copy and paste Zotero citations in MS Word to other parts of the text. However, I noticed that in Linux with LO Writer saving in docx and storing references either as bookmarks or ReferenceMarks I cant. This is due to another limitation in LO Writer being able to cut and paste citations, but not make duplicates (copy-paste).
Zotero is the leading reference management software and it's really disappointing the due to LO Writer limitations many people heavily using reference manager software (e.g. academics) are forced to stick to MS Word just for that, when LO Writer is such a rich and mature software on par or many times better than MS Word.
Please consider improving support for Zotero.
