In today's tutorial, we will cover one of the biggest new features introduced in ZotEZ2: a considerably improved user experience for Collection trees and Tag combinations. Previously, in ZotEZ 1, Collections and Tags looked as show below (Fig. 1)
This tutorial describes the two simplest ways to configure ZotEZ2 for your first sync with Zotero.
Basically, we'll cover here the options of ZotEZ2 that correspond to the Sync's Tab in Zotero's desktop app's settings (see Fig. 1).
ZotEZ² is a third-party client on Android for synchronizing, sorting and downloading articles that are managed with Zotero, and stored on either Zotero Servers, WebDav, Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive , and even locally.
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.
Ever wondered what the Lite! of Aziz, Lite! did stand for? Well, except for the movie reference, it is the mark of an ongoing project, Aziz, with much bigger ambitions. In the mean time, let's welcome (or welcome back) EZPaperz, MendEZ and ZotEZ...
Aziz, Lite! is the first third-part client on Android for synchronizing, sorting and downloading articles that are managed with either Papers (both 2 and 3), Mendeley or Zotero, and stored on either Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive.
What's this all about?
ZotEZ2 is the first third-party client on Android for synchronizing, sorting and downloading articles that are managed with Zotero. Your files can be stored either on Zotero servers, on your WebDAV, on Dropbox, on Google Drive, on OneDrive or even locally.
ZotEZ2 is a daugther app from the Aziz, Lite! suite, which aims at facilitating file management for users of Papers, Mendeley and Zotero that chose to store their library database on another Cloud than the default ones.
