 While we've tried to create the same experience available in Word and LibreOffice,​ there are some limitations to be aware of when working in Google Docs: While we've tried to create the same experience available in Word and LibreOffice,​ there are some limitations to be aware of when working in Google Docs:
  
 +  * Anyone making changes to the document should have the Zotero Connector installed. (Zotero itself is only necessary if inserting citations.) Citations that are cut and pasted without the Connector installed will be unlinked.
 +  * If someone views the document without having the Zotero Connector installed, or if you download the document instead of first making a copy and unlinking citations, active citations in the document will show up as links leading to URLs such as https://​www.zotero.org/​google-docs/?​abc123.
   * Citation inserts and edits slow down significantly as the number of citations increases. With 100+ citations, a single citation update can take up to 10 seconds, so for longer documents you'll want to disable automatic citation updates in the Zotero document preferences.   * Citation inserts and edits slow down significantly as the number of citations increases.

   * Google Docs provides limited facilities for text formatting. Styles that use small caps fonts will not use a true small caps formatting style in Google Docs and will instead fall back to the "​Alegreya Sans SC" font. Citations that have been inserted with automatic citation updates disabled will be inserted with a gray background instead of dashed underlining like in Word and LibreOffice.   * Google Docs provides limited facilities for text formatting.
