Would Citavi attach PDFs in bulk to the references updated already but attached no PDF?

Considering the slow searching process, I usually import bib or ris files first and then attach files one by one. However, the method I used is only suitable for a small amount of PDFs. Occurring the massive PDFs, I can't do this accounting for the limited time. Would Citavi use some rules to attach PDFs in bulk to the references updated already but attached no PDF?

Dear Guoyi,

We cannot implement the desired function in this way. There is a chance that you want to import PDF files that do not have an identifier. Citavi could then not make the correct assignment and create duplicates.


As an alternative, I would like to bring into play that you first add the new References using RIS or BibTeX import. In the second step, have Citavi search for the corresponding full texts. Citavi will then assign the PDFs to the correct references.

Kind regards,

Peter

Thanks but not always work, especially in old literature.
