Hello,

you might organize your references by adding them to specific categories within your project (not in Word). The easiest way to do this, is by drag and drop as shown in this video: https://www.screencast.com/t/hEZobS1jBTe

Afterwards, you are going to see the references for each category in the Word Add-In. Within the categories, the references are sorted alphabetically.

Hi Anne,

Thanks your answer.

But, this path is really difficult considering there are so many references and lots of knowledge items from each reference. When categorizing knowledge items from a reference, it should be able to automatically assign the reference to that category.

Hello,

There is a macro available, to assign categories etc. of knowledge items to references or vice versa (I am sorry, the description is only available in German). You can find the CS-file attached. The settings mentioned in the description are already included in this file:

fc5d788119a13b41d13c26c67fc6c25a

Here you will find the information on how to run a macro in Citavi. If you need other settings, please change them in the corresponding lines of the macro.

Important: Back up your project before running a macro on it, as the changes can not be undone!

Best regards,

Anne

How many times can I run the macro in a project?

I think one times.

Hello,


You can run the macro again. However, it will only have an effect when new references and knowledge items have been added. Or if you have changed or added categories of the existing knowledge items.


Best regards,

Anne
