How do I make changes "stick" that I made in Word to citations and references so I don't have to make them again again, like if I takea way the a or b from the end of the citation, and delete the duplicate reference? How do I make these save permanently?

Hello Violeta


Please note that when you insert a citation from your Citavi project into your document using the Citavi Word Add-In, it will be inserted in a Word content control. These fields become grey when you click them. After inserting such a field you cannot edit it manually, for example by deleting the unique letter which indicates ambiguity.

This also applies to the bibliography, which Citavi also inserts as a field. Each time the document is refreshed, any manual changes will be overwritten.

This means that any changes you want in these fields must be made directly in Citavi so that the Word Add-In can pick them up. You may also add certain information to your references via the Word Add-In. Here is our example for quotation page ranges:

For already inserted references

  1. Highlight the reference in the text.
  2. Switch to the Citations tab in Citavi
  3. The highlighted reference will already be selected. Enter the page numbers in the Page range field, for example 14-15. Do not enter pp. 14-15 or p 14-15. The citation style will insert the necessary prefixes.

For new references

  1. Select the reference on the References tab.
  2. Click Insert advanced.
  3. Enter the page numbers in the Page range field, for example 14-15. Do not enter pp. 14-15 or p 14-15. The citation style will insert the necessary prefixes.
  4. Click OK.

Please see our manual for more detailed information on inserting references:

and inserting references with options:
