-If you have previously inserted citations into Word or LibreOffice using Zotero, but they have now been converted to plain text, this may be caused by one of several factors. +See [[kb/​citations_converted_to_plain_text|Citations Converted to Plain Text]].
- +
-  - You used the "​Unlink Citations"​ button. This button will disconnect your document from Zotero and convert all citations and bibliographies to plain text. +
-  - You saved the document in an unsupported file type. For Word, your document must be saved as .docx or .doc. For LibreOffice,​ if you are storing citations as Reference Marks (the default), your document must be saved as .odt. For LibreOffice,​ if you are storing citations as Bookmarks (see below), your document must be saved as .docx or .doc. +
-  - You opened and saved your document using a word processor program that does not support Fields/​Reference Marks/​Bookmarks. These include: +
-    - **Google Docs and other online word processors:​** Google Docs and most other online word processors do not support Fields/​Reference Marks/​Bookmarks. Opening a document in these programs will break connections with Zotero. Microsoft'​s Word Online does support Fields and so can be used safely with Word documents containing Zotero fields. +
-    - **Pages:** Apple Pages does not support Fields/​Reference Marks/​Bookmarks. Opening a document in Pages will break connections with Zotero. +
-    - **Word:** If you open an .odt file (created by LibreOffice) in Word, Zotero references stored as Reference Marks (the default) will be broken. To share a document between Word and LibreOffice users, change the "Store Citations as:" option in the Zotero Document Preferences to Bookmarks. (Bookmarks can cause errors if accidentally modified, so they should only be used if compatibility between Word and LibreOffice is necessary.) +
-    - **LibreOffice:​** If you open a .docs or .doc file (created by Word) in LibreOffice,​ Zotero references stored as Fields (the default) will be broken. To share a document between Word and LibreOffice users, change the "Store Citations as:" option in the Zotero Document Preferences to Bookmarks. (Bookmarks can cause errors if accidentally modified, so they should only be used if compatibility between Word and LibreOffice is necessary.) +
- +
-If your document'​s citations have been converted to plain text, your only option for restoring the links to Zotero is to open and restore a previous version of the document with the citation links intact. If this is not possible, you will need to re-insert the citations from Zotero. +
