{{cloudLibrary}}
## Metadata
{{itemType}}
{{author}}
{{proceedingsTitle}}
{{date}}
{{dateAdded}}

Zotero Note Template#

If you include the {{notes}} placeholder in the Mdnotes Default Template, mdnotes will loop through the Zotero Notes of the selected items and add them one by one using this template.

For single-file exports, you might want to edit your template to look like this:

{{tags}}
{{related}}
{{noteTitle}}
{{noteContent}}

This template is also used by the Export to markdown menu when you select a Zotero note. If you ever want to export, the changes you make will affect both menus.
