Adding Cover Art

You can add cover art to every reference. Especially in large projects the cover art can make it easier to navigate your project. When you search for books from within Citavi, Citavi can save the cover art automatically. If you have linked a PDF or Web page to a reference, you can create cover art from the current preview.
