Is it possible to export all our your Citavi project data?

Say I wanted to export all of my Citavi project data for use in another file format. I might want to analyse the data in another program or say, the Citavi team/ server/company was wiped out by a meteor and I wanted to be able to export and use my Citavi project data? To be clear, I mean not only references, which can already be exported, but everything, including topics, categories, ideas, project outline etc. Is this possible and if so what format does it export to? A related question is what file format is Citavi data stored/saved in?

Hi, Azmir

You can always create an archive copy of your project. This copy will include the whole Citavi project database alongside the attachments compressed into one ZIP file. The file extension is ctv6archive but you can easily change it into .zip and extract the contents.

You'll find a file named [project_name].ctv6. This is the actual project database stored in the SQLite format. You can inspect the database with any available SQLite tool.

From a local project you can also create a backup copy. This, again, is a compressed copy of the project database (not the attachments, though) but this time as an XML dump. You can unzip the backup file as well and inspect the [project_name].ctv6 file using any suitable text editor.

Best regards
