Connect knowledge items

I want to connect two knowledge items. I have a knowledge item containing a citation of text and an image knowledge item concerning same topic. Can I directly link them together somehow or just via keywords/categories? What is the workflow here to "keep them close to each other"?

Hello Hendrik

There is no straightforward way of achieving this goal yet. In the Knowledge section of Citavi you can visually arrange the order of the knowledge items for each category by dragging and dropping and adding subheadings. This, however, is a visual aid only, there is no link in the database between the two items. Links between knowledge items is a feature that is definitely on our wishlist (and has been for quite some time) but I can't say if or when we can actually implement it.

Best regards

Dear Sebastian,

just want to clarify, is it a chance to see this feature in upcoming version of Citavi 6? This feature would be very useful! The lack of knowledge items connections is one of the rarely weaknesses of Citavi right now.

Take care,

Dear Max

There are plans, but as they'd require major changes to both the user interface and the backend, such a feature will not be introduced in the Citavi 6 branch. Whether or not it will be available in Citavi 7 is to early to say.

Best regards

Sebastian
