Description SergeiD 2020-12-01 02:02:15 UTC
Why such simple stuff cause such many pain? Could someone explain why it is impossible copy-and-paste a citation in same document? Is it very hard to fix notorious the copying referencemarks ten years old bug? MS Word works like a charm with Zotero (and any other) bibliography, but opensource LO and opensource Zotero can't do this very simple stuff copying the citation from one place to other in the same document. Can anyone give a description what needs to be done to make this simple function work?

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Zotero citation
2. Copy and paste the inserted cite

Actual Results:
The insertion is a plain text, so it is more impossible to edit the cite.

Expected Results:
The insertion is a referencemark and allow edit the cite.

Reproducible: Always

Please explain the steps better. This is my first time using Zotero.

I created an item in Zotero.
I added a citation in Writer, picked my item.
I selected the citation mark, copied and pasted elsewhere in the Writer document.
It pasted correctly and I had two footnotes.

I don't see the bug? Or do I have to do something else to see the bug?
I'm using Zotero 6.0.22
