Automatically preview all references in preview pane

David V. shared this question 2 months ago

In the preview pane, there is a button to "Always preview this location immediately". This is nice, but doesn't "stick" if you close Citavi. It would be very nice to have a global setting which allows the program to always open the preview link for every reference, so that they show up automatically.

This is a wonderful program which is so easy to use. It just needs a few teaks to make it even better.


Thank you,

Hi David

This setting should stick (at least for the selected reference). If you need to set this for all documents, you might want to use this macro (description available in German only). Perhaps the settings are not correctly stored, please also try to re-login:


1. On the Welcome Screen, click the login symbol on the upper right corner.

2. Select "Log out".

3. Click the login symbol on the upper right side again.

4. Enter your Citavi Account login name and password.


Best regards

I tried running that macro but it doesn't seem to work, am I doing something wrong? https://gyazo.com/e049b3c22bcc778c9c0a98b7a3c5ed2f

Hi Violeta

From what I can see in the screenshot, the macro has worked just fine. The macro itself provides no success message but when you switch the references in Citavi the preview doesn't seem to be loading automatically.

I was looking for something that DOES make previews always load automatically.

Hi, Violeta

I hadn't looked closely enough at the screenshot. You're actually running the demo macro code which does absolutely nothing until you turn the comment //your code into some actual code.

Please save the attached macro, load it in the macro editor (File > Load) and run it.

Best regards

Sebastian
