Split files option will create, as its name indicates, separate files for your metadata, Zotero notes, or your own notes. Whenever you use the
Export to markdown menu:
- One file containing the metadata will be created if you selected a Zotero item using the
Zotero Metadata Template.
- If you select a Zotero note, one file will be created using the
Zotero Note Template
Create Mdnotes file will create a note for your notes using the
Mdnotes Default Template.
By selecting a Zotero item and using the
Batch export to markdown menu,
mdnotes will create all the above files, i.e. one for the metadata and one for each Zotero note in that item.
Mdnotes file doesn't exist, it will be created.
Mdnotes file will never be overwritten with the
Batch export menu. If you wish to do so, you must use the
Create Mdnotes file and confirm you want to overwrite it.
