Tutorials: Manual Setup of your library's database and folders with the latest update of ZotEZ, AzizLite, MendEZ and EZPaperz

Posted on 1 Nov 2017

This tutorial describes how to set up manually the library you want to connect to Aziz,Lite! or one of its daughter apps. Since the last update, you have now the possibility to force the app to go to one specific folder on your Cloud.

This means that now you can have multiple library on one cloud (let's say Dropbox), and still be able to choose which one will be synchronized with Aziz,Lite!

Also, for reference managers like Zotero or Mendeley, it also means that you can have your database file (.sqlite) in one place, and your library folder in another place!

Finally, it implies (mainly for Zotero) that you can use attachments rather than direct storage folder linking of the PDFs.
