Zotero / Endnote / Bibtex

Zotero is just brilliant for collecting references where you search for them – in your browser. But I’m having issues with conversion to and from Endnote and Bibtex.

Issue#1: When Endnote imports, no matter which format you choose, fields are lost. Some formats seem better than others – RIS at least captures the journal name!

Issue#2: Zotero creates its own labels for its Bibtex export. This is ok in and of itself, but Endnote does not pick these labels up (and Endnote does not have a simple Bibtex import…

I’m working hard at making the full switch to Zotero (and this will include a long session, that I have been putting off, in which I rewrite all my citations to use the Zotero version of the Bibtex label). The only thing that really bugs me at the moment is not being able to edit the Bibtex label.
