Fields for Zotero

Hi Miklos,

thank you very much for your answer!

Let’s make sure we are on the same page here.

Zotero is already able to write its citation with LibreOffice.
To do so, it currently uses one of two methods, at user’s choice:
(1) ReferenceMarks, which are NOT compatible with Microsoft Word
(2) Bookmarks, which are SOMEHOW compatible with Microsoft Word, in the 
sense that you can’t put citations in footnotes, and they tend to break 
very easily.

Instead, the Zotero plugin for Microsoft Word uses:
(1) Fields, which are NOT compatible with LibreOffice
(2) Bookmarks, see above.

The point of this post is to allow the plugin for LibreOffice to use 

In particular, I have to use the UNO interface to write the following in 
the |word/document.xml| file inside a .docx file:

|<w:r> <w:fldChar w:fldCharType="begin"/> </w:r> <w:r> <w:instrText 
xml:space="preserve"> [some text here] </w:instrText> </w:r> <w:r> 
<w:fldChar w:fldCharType="separate"/> </w:r> <w:r w:rsidRPr="007C09F6"> 
<w:rPr> <w:rFonts w:ascii="Calibri" w:hAnsi="Calibri" w:cs="Calibri"/> 
</w:rPr> <w:t> [some text here] </w:t> </w:r> <w:r> <w:fldChar 
w:fldCharType="end"/> </w:r> |

would the || interface allow me 
to write the above code?

Best and thank you again.

> Fieldmarks are primarily for preserving fields imported from Word, soit's somewhat intentional that there is no UI / documentation on how tocreate them.Writer's bibliography UI creates bibliography fields instead, availableas the UNO service. Did youconsider going with that instead?Regards,Miklos
