I'm trying to do some academic writing with Quarto documents which requires proper citations. It's great to have (some) support for Zotero (and I use Better BibTeX as well), but the implementation thus far is rather rough. I know that's the price for being a bit on the "bleeding edge" of development, with Quarto, but are there plans to improve support?
Some issues I've run into include:
- only being able to Insert a citation easily from the Visual, and not Source, editor?
- search functionality is truly truly terrible
- MULTIPLE copies of citations can end up being added to the .bib file
- very non-intuitive, and I think probably brittle, use of Better BibTeX (hard to find, doesn't seem to always work. In case anyone else couldn't figure it out: Preferences -> R Markdown -> Citations -> "Use Better BibTeX..."
If Quarto is being pushed as a pretty robust technical writing / publishing platform, I wonder whether it would be beneficial to polish the citation support?
