Note-taking with Zotero-5.0.97-beta.
Before you install the new beta version close Zotero and do a full backup of your Zotero directory/folder.
For note-taking with Zotero-5.0.97-beta – Note that beta versions will probably update the database so that it is no longer compatible with previous versions of Zotero. The Beta version does not yet contain all the functions of the current stable release, although it contains new features which are major improvements for workflow. Downgrading isn’t possible without reverting to a backup copy of zotero.sqlite. As far as I know, if you work with the Beta version and sync with Zotero.org, the “cloud” database will be upgraded and will not be compatible with the stable release of Zotero 5.
