Location Zotero files: Cloud or WebDav a solution?

Good morning,

I have been using the integrated Sync-option between my Logseq-installation on my MacBook and my iPad since some days and I like it so far. Since I am using the integration with Zotero and the PDF-reader I am trying to figure out, with which files storage solution in Zotero I can access publications on both devices. I have tried iCloud storage and OneDrive with the Zotfile-extension but I cannot reference the right path on my iPad for the Zotero-settings on iPad.

1.) Did anybody find out if this is possible?
2.) Would a WebDav-approach (e.g. Owncloud webdav) a solution?



Since nobody answered this question I just share my current workaround:

  • I use Zotero with Zotfile-extension and BetterBibTex extension
  • After adding references and PDFs these PDFs get copied to a folder in my OneDrive
  • On iPad I have specified this folder as favorite folder in the app PDFExpert
  • Reading and marking these files on iPad is also visible in the Logseq-PDF reader

The only disadvantage is that I have to use the highlighting function in Logseq a second time if I want to shift text from the PDF into Logseq, but this is acceptable.
