Zotero plugin to export metadata and notes to markdown

Which version is that for you? Is it the alpha version linked in the releases?

This is not currently possible! If you’d like this, please open an issue on the repository so I don’t forget!

Hi, I managed to get it to work! It was my fault by not understanding that I should first use Zotfile to get the notes inside Zotero via Extract Annotations and then use mdNotes to create the Batch Export. I was assuming the second already covered the first action, my bad.

Regarding the folder directory thing, I opened an issue in Github as you requested.

Thank you!

Hello @argentum,

First of all, THANK YOU for this wonderful plugin!
I’m not sure if this is the place to ask for new features (sorry if not), but would it be possible to set different paths for the mdnotes generated files? It would be marvellous if I could automatically send the metadata and extracted annotations to a folder separate from my literature notes folder.

Thanks!

Happy to hear it’s been useful for you! For feature requests, it’s usually best to add them as GitHub issues! I’m almost sure someone asked for something similar, but if you add a comment it lets me gauge interest and take it into account in the way I prioritise requests!

I’ve just started to use the plugin, it’s really cool! Thanks!

Question: There is some way to change the template? I would like to move some things to the frontmatter

There is, you can find that in the docs: https://argenos.github.io//zotero-mdnotes/docs/next/advanced/templates/defaults

Cat’s workflow also covers that a little bit: Zotero -> zotfile -> mdnotes -> obsidian -> dataview Workflow

Thanks!

Thank you so much. I had the same problem and just updated the mdnote version. It literally just blew my little mind. :grin:
