Getting support for the ZotPlus plugins

Before all else, thank you for taking the time for submitting an issue, and I’m sorry that I’ve probably interrupted your flow. Your report matters to me.

Apologies for the inconvenience, but such are the breaks.

Better BibTeX

That in itself will in many cases give me what I need. Don’t forget to copy the generated ID to paste it into the github issue; you cannot call it up later (although you can just so it again). Still, if you want a faster fix:

Providing test cases

If you have a problem, right-clicking on a reference that exhibits the problem and selecting Report ZotPlus Error will send me a ready-to-use testcase, inclusing your currents settings. If you are generously donating code, and happen to include a testcase (always appreciated!) the test runner expects any BibTeX matching files to:
