Zotero autoexport: Changelog and support


I am happy if I can get feedback or errors from you. It is helpful if you provide much informations as possible:
  • provide the system you are using
  • the version of Firefox or the version of Zotero Standalone
  • addon version you are using
  • log of the console: When something does not work like excepted enable the option of logging message to console, You can open the console in Firefox with Strg + Shift + J. Be sure that not only errors are visible and maybe you have to clean the console before you start your action with problems. After that you can select the entrys in console and copy with rightclick
  • screenshot or hints to reproduce
  • Maybe you do not need all this data - just send with a description to the team.
