When you add and edit references, there are many words and names you use repeatedly, such as the names of authors, libraries, and organizations. When you enter one of these in a reference, Citavi automatically remembers it in the list. Then, when you add or edit another reference, Citavi automatically shows you the list when you begin to type. Click a suggestion to accept it, or use the arrow keys if necessary and then press Tab or Enter to accept. To reject a suggestion, keep typing, or press Esc.
Citavi keeps lists for the following fields: Persons and organizations, Keywords, Periodicals, Publishers, Libraries, and Series.
You can edit these lists to change incorrect entries, delete old entries, add new ones, and add notes to entries. The list also lets you see which references use a particular list item. To view and edit a list, switch to the Reference editor or Knowledge Organizer, and on the Lists menu click the list you want to edit.
On the Lists menu, click the list you want to edit.
Hint: To delete all list entries you no longer need, in the Reference Editor on the File menu, click Project properties. Switch to the Statistics tab and click Delete unused items.
Citavi remembers the names of places you enter (for example, place of publication). When entering new references, you can choose an existing name to save time. Just click the arrow in the Place of publication field and then click the place you want to use.
To delete or edit a place name, just edit or clear the name in the field.
