If you obtain “Word could possibly not interact with Zotero. Please ensure Firefox or Zotero Standalone is running and attempt once again”, when attempting to utilize the Pale Moon web browser( see Pale Moon review) with Zotero and Word in Windows, below’s exactly how to resolve the problem. Do not squander your time trying the typical fixes for that communication mistake, something much more particular is needed for Pale Moon. The complying with benefited me in Windows 7 Pro as well as Word 2010. 1. Use the 32-bit version of Pale Moon The 64-bit version has< a href=" http://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3228

” > compatibility problems with Zotero, so even if you have a 64-bit computer system, it’s ideal to download set up the 32-bit version of Pale Moon. If you have actually currently installed the 64-bit version of Pale Moon, just uninstall it in the typical means( eg for

Windows 7) as well as then mount the 32-bit variation. 2. Install the Zotero add-on Mount the Zotero for Firefox add-on

in Pale Moon in the usual means. 3.

Do NOT attempt to install the Zotero plugin for Word outward Pale Moon Where you previously had Firefox as well as Zotero dealing with Word integration, you must not aim to set up the Zotero Word plugin once more from within Pale

Moon. That will merely make even a lot more things quiting working. Tried that, just made things even worsefor me, Word combination quit working altogether also with simply Firefox open!( But if you did that already, you could fix it by doing this: close Word, close Pale Moon for luck, open Firefox and after that reinstall the Word plugin for Firefox direct from

the Zotero page, open Word, and also check that you can include citations typically in Word again. )4. Edit the Zotero Word plugin After some browsing and also dabbling(< a href=" http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/edit-and-delete-buttons-macros-greyed-out-and-do-not-wo-t883201.html

” > here’s where I obtained the clue regarding the Start-up folder!), I exercised how you can carry outthe required edits. Do not attempt to modify Word’s normal.dotm report in the Word layouts -you can not edit the Zotero macros from there. Instead: OpenWord Menu Documents > Open In the File Open dialog box, click in the leading address bar (or press Alt-d), after that type or paste in the following:

  1. % appdata%
  2. MicrosoftWordSTARTUP
  3. pmz1 After that strike the Get in or Return secret, or click the ideal arrow button detailed in red in the photo over. The appropriate sub-folder will open up. Open the Zotero.dot file in that sub-folder
  4. . You’ll merely get an empty Word paper. Now because Word record, press Alt-F11( ie hold down the left Alt secret and also tap the F11 secret).
  5. A new window will open, with the title “Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications -Zotero”.
  6. Click “Task( Zotero) on the entrusted to highlight it: pmz-project Next off go to food selection Tools, pick Macros, and also you’ll seethis turn up: pmz2 Click on” ZoteroInsertCitation” to highlight it, as revealed above, then click the Edit switch, and also a sub-window must open up. Currently locate the area that checks out:’ Try different names for Firefox Dim appNames (5) appNames (1)=” Zotero “appNames( 2 )=”
  7. Firefox” appNames( 3) =” Internet browser” appNames( 4 )=” Minefield” For i= 1 To 4
    ( you can look for’ various names
    ‘to obtain there – menu Edit Discover or Ctrl-f) You need to make two modifications insert the line: appNames( 5)=” Pale Moon “after the appNames( 4) line. change the 4
    to read 5 in the” For “line so it now resembles this:
    pmz3 Now visit the food selection, File Save Zotero, and shut that window, after that close Zotero.dot. 5

. Further suggestions on utilizing Zotero with
Pale Moon Don’t have both Firefox and Pale Moon open! Simply have Pale Moon open to put citations etc from your Pale Moon Zotero collection. Syncing. You could move your Zotero library to Pale

Moon by syncing it from Firefox to the Zotero Sync Server, after that(utilizing the very same username and password) syncing it once again in Pale Moon -it may take a while each means. If you do not currently have a totally free Zotero account to allow syncing, it’s worth producing an account, if just for the satisfaction with back-ups! PDFs. Yes you can see PDFs in Pale Moon and include PDFs to Zotero utilizing Pale Moon. You simply require PDF plug-ins for Pale Moon. (Added 17 June ) Credit ratings: this discussion forum and also spot.
