With the upgrade to v5.0.45m33, you will see something strange in the center column: all columns will be selected for display. This is not breakage, but a one-time issue to make Juris-M play more nicely with Zotero when both are installed on the same system. This post explains how to restore the normal view.

The anomaly

You will see something like this in the center pane, with every single column selected for display:

Fixing the columns

To restore normal settings, you will need to unselect each unneeded column individually, using the column picker icon in the upper right corner of the pane. You need to unselect columns both in the main listing, and in the child “More Columns” child menu:

This is a one-time adjustment. Your restored setting will be remembered when you next run Juris-M.

Changes since the previous update

Here is a run-down of the changes made to Juris-M since the last update memo (for v5.0.45m28).

  • Zotero fixes and accessibility: In addition to several small bugfixes, we inherit changes to better support some screen readers. The Juris-M Jurisdiction and Court fields have a different structure in the UI from ordinary Zotero fields, and the latter change is applied only to the ordinary fields.
  • European Court of Justice: The chambers of the ECJ and the Attorney General of the ECJ jurisdiction have been added to the court listings.
  • Remove Reporter from column picker: This is the change that triggers the anomaly described above. The Reporter column does not exist in Zotero, and removing it gives us a smoother experience when the two tools are run alternatively on the same machine. Adding that column was a hack dating from the days of Juris-M 4.0. The proper way to include Reporter will be to display it in the Publication column as an ordinary journal name.
