Dear All,


Is there a way to have Citavi 6 insert direct quotations by automatically adding Quotation Marks before and after the quote? Or do we have to do that manually every time?


Thank you so much for your help!

Hi, Massimiliano

Citavi currently doesn't add quotation marks when adding direct quotations to your document. The reason being that there are numerous quotation mark system (across languages and even within the same language) and that some citation guidelines require the omission of quotation marks for lengthy quotations (and rather have them set in a different style).

Best regards

Dear Sebastian,


Thank you for your answer. I know there are different citation styles, but is there a way to have citavi always automatically put quotation marks before and after direct quotations? May I set this "rule", or option, by default?


Thank you!

Hi, Massimo

You can add the quotation marks directly in Citavi through the context menu. Select the text of your direct quote, press Ctrl-A, right-click and select the quotation marks from the list of special characters.

Best regards

Sebastian
