-If Zotero can find a match for the item, it will create a full Zotero item with the available data and attach the PDF. If it can't, it will leave the PDF as a standalone attachment, allowing you to add a parent item [[adding_items_to_zotero|from the web or by identifier]] and drag the PDF onto it. If all else fails, you can right-click on the PDF, choose Create Parent Item, and manually enter metadata for the item.+If Zotero can find a match for the PDF, it will create a full Zotero item with the available data and attach the PDF.

 Zotero should retrieve high-quality metadata for most academic PDFs. While it can sometimes extract basic information (title, author) from other documents, you shouldn'​t expect that — anything can be distributed as a PDF, but that doesn’t mean there’s any standard metadata available for it. Zotero should retrieve high-quality metadata for most academic PDFs.
