Using Citavi in the United States

In Citavi 3 it was possible to insert references into a document using placeholders. These placeholders were then converted to formatted citations in a second step. At the same time, a bibliography was created. This option worked with all programs that support rich text format (rtf), including OpenOffice Writer, LibreOffice Writer und Scrivener.

Recently this placholder conversion process was protected by a patent. As long as this patent is valid, we are unable to offer the option to convert placeholders in the United States.

What does this mean for you?

What implications does this have in Citavi 4?
