Edit location not working

Patrick D. shared this problem 5 months ago
Solved

Hi!

I renamed some titles of my references not with Citavi, but from Windows Explorer. I get an error that the file does not exist and offers me 2 options: Delete or Edit location

Trying to edit location (Open to reselect changed file) gives me error.

Hi Patrick,

Could you please let me know the version of Citavi you’re using?

The four-digit version number of the Citavi version you have installed can be found in the "Help" > "About Citavi" menu.

Was the PDF file linked to your local project?

Kind regards

Hi Jana,

Citavi version is 6.3.1.0 and, yes, the pdf was linked to the project. I prefer to keep all my pdfs in a personal structure on my drive.

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for your reply.

I have checked the issue with our developers and the behaviour by design.

Please delete the path which can longer be found and add the correct one as a new local file.

However, the option "Edit location" is confusing and should be removed in future versions of Citavi in the preview.

Kind regards

Jana

Dear Patrick,

With the upcoming Beta version, the option "Edit location" will no longer be available.

In the news section of the welcome screen we will inform you as soon as the new version is available.

Kind regards

Jana
