Importing Settings Files

If your organization has created a settings file for you, you should import it. The settings file usually will allow you to access many of the online resources your organization offers.

Settings files can contain login credentials for subscription databases. You can only use these if you use a license key issued under your organization's site license. The login credentials will not be imported if you are using Citavi Free, a site license from another organization, or a personal license.

  1. On the Tools menu, select Import or export settings.
  2. Click Import.
  3. Click Browse, choose the settings file, and then click Open.
  4. Select the settings you want to import.
  5. Click Finish.


If the settings file is in a ZIP archive, you first need to extract the file before you can import it into Citavi. To extract it, right-click the file name and then click Extract all. Then import the resulting .csd file.
