«[…] The one big drawback to Zotero is how it handles PDFs once it downloads them. By default it moves them to a storage folder buried deep in your hard drive, and while it’s possible to move that folder into your Dropbox, it still retains Zotero’s convention of nesting your files within randomly named folders, like “3B329KFK.” Ick.

Of course making this decision is only ever the first step. Next, I needed to set-up all my tools properly to ensure that the set-up worked for the workflow I intended.
