How can I import Zotero notes to Citavi?

Both standalone notes and child notes. Would it be quotas?

Thanks for your question.

Citavi does import attached notes in the "Notes" field of the reference.

Standalone notes however are not included in the BibTeX export Zotero provides and can therefore not be imported in Citavi.

Kind regards,



Hi Jana, How does it work if you have multiple notes for one imported reference? In the "Notes" field it seems that they are just put one after another (as one big note with no separation), which makes it very unhandy to separate the notes again. Is there any option to import the Notes as a direct quotation or indirect quotation for example? Along the same line: tags of notes are completely lost in the import process?

Thank you for your support,
