 +  * Don't allow Add Item by Identifier to create an item in a feed view

 +===== Changes in 5.0.85 (March 24, 2020) =====
 +  * [Mac] Fixed potential "Word could not communicate with Zotero"​ error
 +    * If Zotero was started the first time from a disk image rather than from Applications,​ the word processor plugins would be installed in a way that would prevent them from working later.
 +  * Download remotely updated files in "as needed"​ file sync mode
 +    * Previously, files updated remotely wouldn'​t be downloaded in "as needed"​ mode if a copy of the file already existed locally, and they could only be re-downloaded by deleting the file via Show File. This change causes remotely modified files that exist locally to be downloaded at sync time, even in "as needed"​ mode.
 +    * Files modified remotely before this change won't be downloaded at sync time in "as needed"​ mode, but they'​ll now be re-downloaded on open.
 +  * Full-text indexing improvements
 +    * When using full-text content syncing, "​Rebuild Index…"​ → "Index Unindexed Items" can now be used to force immediate processing of downloaded content
 +    * Fixed "​Unknown"​ full-text status when an item is reindexed remotely and the content matches the local content
 +  * Allow saved searches to be edited or deleted even if they can't be loaded
 +  * Fixed OPML feed import (since 5.0.78)
 +  * Use Zotero fields (and not just CSL fields) entered in Extra when generating citations

 +  * Parse a tab-delimited creator when only a single line is pasted

 +  * Fixed sorting by Creator column for items with no authors and multiple editors (since 5.0.83)

 +  * Improved PDF retrieval for publishers that use cookies for IP-based authentication (e.g., Nature)

 +===== Changes in 5.0.82 (January 21, 2020) =====
 +  * Page number entry improvements in citation dialog
 +    * It's now possible to type page numbers with or without "​p"​ before or after making a selection.
 +    * For the first citation, you can search by number alone. After making a selection, if you want to search for an additional citation by number, press the spacebar first, which will lock the previously entered selection and prevent a number alone from turning into a page number. Clicking on a bubble and entering a page number in the popup also locks the citation.
 +    * If you add an additional citation in the same dialog and it's sorted earlier in the list, typing a page number will now properly apply to that citation rather than to the right-most citation.
 +    * You can move between citations with the left/right arrow keys and use "​p123"​ (the "​p"​ is required in this case) to add or overwrite the locator for the citation to the left of the cursor.
 +  * Fixed cursor positioning around citation bubbles (since 5.0.78)
 +  * Added Norwegian Bokmål locale

 +  * Adjusted URL launching behavior
 +    * Removed URL scheme whitelist for linked-URL attachments
 +    * Some URLs were loading via the internal viewer rather than being blocked or launched externally
 +    * Only show cursor feedback on URL label if URL can be opened
 +  * Don't send cookies with WebDAV requests to avoid 503 error from Nextcloud servers (since 5.0.78)
 +  * Restored '​yesterday'/'​today'/'​tomorrow'​ parsing for Accessed field and dates in search conditions (since 5.0.78)
 +  * Fixed CSL 0.8 style import (since 5.0.78)
 +  * Fixed parsing of pre-1000 years
 +    * If a leading zero (e.g., '​068'​),​ parse as actual year instead of 19xx/20xx
