Automatically detect in-text citation in word

Under Consideration

Hi there,

Is it possible to detect an in-text citation if it is inserted by hand?

for example: I write a paragraph and I know where the idea is located: (Author 2019, p. 34). I want Citavi to convert that in-text citation in a field and to insert the bibliography.

I wrote a 20 p document with papers on the table and I inserted in text citation like described above. Then I spent then 2.5h to reinsert them in Citavi to have bibliography. I mention that all my references are already in Citavi but sometimes I prefer to write in .txt then paste the content in Word 2019 and link the document. Somehow I hoped that Citavi would recognize the in-text citation.

I went to Citavi plugin in Word > Option >Link in text citations to references... but nothing happened

Thanks!

Hi, Patrick

Thank you for your suggestion. Automatically converting citations not inserted by Citavi into Citavi fields is currently not possible. We'll explore the idea but I can't say if or when we can turn this into a concrete feature.

Best regards

Sebastian
