There is an integrated Zotero toolbar in Word, LibreOffice and Google Docs. You can only use this toolbar if Zotero is running.



: opens a search window that allows you to search for citations in your Zotero library, to select the style and insert the citation. For certain styles requiring footnotes, Zotero creates automatically the footnote and inserts the citation inside. You can also add a page number, a prefix or a suffix to a citation.

: allows you to change the style of your references.

If you do not find the Zotero toolbar, try to go to Preferences, Cite, Word Processors, and install or reinstall the Word or LibreOffice plugin. It solves the problem in 80% of the cases.
