Is Internet Explorer required?

David V. shared this question 5 months ago

I have uninstalled Internet Explorer because of security concerns. Now, when I try to open the full text of an article in the preview area (in PubMed), nothing happens. It used to open in Internet Explorer, despite Edge being my default web browser in Windows. This appears to be hard-coded. Could we have the options to open in the Windows default browser?

Hi David

Citavi uses the standard Windows HTML viewer component, which in fact is still a subset of the Internet Explorer. Without the Internet Explorer libraries available, Citavi won't be able to render HTML content in its preview pane. We're looking into changing this behaviour.

Best regards



thank you very much
