Is there any method to change the font in all existing knowledge items?

I've finished most of my research and am now organizing my knowledge items. I'm finding that the default font in Citavi is a bit difficult for my old eyes to read. Is there any way to change the font in all of the knowledge items at once?

Thanks, but I have no idea at all on what to do with that. Any suggestions?

I can't explain it better than the manual. To be on the safe side, I have also uploaded the macro as an attachment. Important: always make a copy of the project first.

Thanks. I'll give it a shot.

I realize that this is a dumb question, but need a bit more help. I've saved the macro as a ".cs" file on my computer, but the Citavi macro editor doesn't recognize it. I suspect it's because Windows has classified it as a text file, rather than a "cs" file. Any suggestions?

OK. But there are no stupid questions, only sometimes stupid answers.

1. open macro editor

2. ctrl+O (open) search for the *.cs in the file system

3. in line 45 "fontSize = 9" set the desired font size

4. "Compile" → no errors should appear

5. then execute (run)


PS. For my bumpy English I ask for your indulgence. I use Deepl for security

#2 is the problem. I can't find the file using Citavi's macro editor, even though it's clearly there using Windows Explorer. When I saved it, Windows told me that it was saving it as a ".cs.txt" file and not allowing me to change that. However, in Win Explorer, it's listed with only the ".cs" ending but categorized as a Text File.

Oh, and your English is great! What is your native language, if you don't mind me asking.

Ah, the problem is that the file name extensions are not displayed. Please tick and then rename *.cs.txt to *.cs

Thanks. That solved that problem. But now that I'm running the macro, it's changing everything back to Citavi's default font, Segoe UI, 9 pt. I had assumed (incorrectly) that it would give me the chance to select the font I want. How do I do that? I would like to change everything to Verdana, 12 pt.

Thanks again for your help and patience.
