Export bibtxt catalog to zotero

Bug Description

For years I used to export new book entries from Calibre in bibtxt format and then import that into zotero, as a new collection.
Today I did the same, and the bib file did create a new collection in zotero, but empty.
In notepad++, I selected only the metadata and copied it to the clipboard, without the first line commenting on the number of books in the collection. Importing the content of the clipboard worked fine and added the books in the zotero collection.
I don't know whether calibre or zotero carry the bug, but obviously they are no longer compatible as they used to be.

The lines that seem to block importation are :

%%%Calibre catalog
%%%2 entries in catalog

@preamble{"This catalog of 2 entries was generated by calibre on vendredi, 01. mai 2020 12:49"}

I copied only the items starting with @book { ... }
