I’m having difficulty with the sidebar. I like using it much, much more than I like using the control-alt-p option to enter citations. The only problem, which I have mentioned before to support, is that the sidebar frequently reports that it has lost its connection to the document I am editing, which creates an obnoxious red pop-up that is very distracting. I recognize that I am in the minority and that this is an issue few others have reported. All I want is a way to stop getting the pop-ups in the bottom right. Maybe make it silently retry to connect after five seconds before producing the pop-ups for disconnect and reconnect. Maybe I can just turn off the pop-ups entirely and take my chances. Whatever the solution is, it is essential that I have some way of removing the pop-ups.
It is no longer possible for me to leave the sidebar closed and use the control-alt-p Chrome extension to add references, because i have discovered that this causes significant lag when footnoting large documents.
I have tried:
Powerwashing the chromebook.
Uninstalling and reinstalling all extensions.
Double-checking my internet connection. This problem appears at regular intervals on all connections I have tried, even perfectly stable university wifi.
Using adblock to filter the div for popups (doesn’t work because of the nested iFrame)
my current solution is a sticky note in the bottom right-hand corner of my page, which is for obvious reasons not a good long-term fix.
EDIT: Incidentally, I only just now saw the replies to my previous topic. The issue appears on every document I edit.
