Configure Zotero to work with Google Scholar

I love Zotero. It is my reference manager of choice. I have Endnote X, but no longer use it.

I just updated to Zotero 1.0.7 and received an error message when trying to import a citation from Google Scholar. I had not received such an error since the early beta releases of Zotero (I think 0.5). Luckily, I came up with a solution.

On the Google Scholar homepage, click on Preferences. Scroll to the bottom and tick Export to Endnote format, then click save. The error was then gone, and Zotero worked beautifully.

Zotero is a free download and is an addon for Mozilla Firefox and Flock.

Thanks - that solved my problem too, and made creating a biblio. much easier half-way through my reading.

How to download the selected scholar files (multiple) to zotero libray instead of one by one.

Step 1: Click the little folder in the URL bar to bring up the list of items that may be imported into Zotero.

Step 2: Check the items that you would like to import and then click OK.

To replace a single letter, which is a part of a word.
"I am not an IndividuaI but Institution.Tell me!iIIegaI? I reaIIy.."
not the first "I" which is a single letter,
but the uppercase 2nd, 3rd and so on in the entire text.
This is to correct OCR errors. Somebody pl give solution.
thank you,

1. You wrote: « That would only be an issue if there were any occurrences of 1 text line, 1 blank line, 1 text line »
Such occurrences are just the "blank lines" targeted in Step 4 « Get rid of all these blank lines »

2. « Also, when replacing \r\n\r\n with \r\n, it would be necessary to hit Replace All repeatedly until all instances of \r\n\r\n are gone »
Of course, and this is also the case in §1; but it goes without saying that in such case you 1st do a Replace "\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n" with "\r\n" and or similar ones, which in total is way shorter than to "hit Replace All repeatedly until all instances of \r\n\r\n are gone"

3. You didn't address my very question: Step 4 is still uncorrected in the state where it does NOT what it claims. A 433-post discussion is of little use IMO as long as those posts are NOT really read and eventually applied when necessary.
