Managing Lists

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 has lists for the following fields: libraries, categories, persons and organizations, series, keywords, publishers, and periodicals.

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. On the Lists menu, click the list you want to edit.


Special Case: Places of Publication

Citavi remembers the names of places you enter (for example, the place of publication). When entering new references, you can choose an existing name to save time. Just start typing in the Place of publication field and then select the place you want to use.
To delete or edit a place name, edit or clear the name in the field.
