Proofreading Tips

It's a good idea to have someone proofread your work before handing it in. When working with the Word Add-In there are a couple of things you need to keep in mind.


Your proofreader must edit your document with Microsoft Word, and the file must remain in .docx format. Saving in another file format could cause all Citavi field information to be deleted.
If the proofreader is using the Track Changes, feature, he or she should also not use the No markup option.
Manual changes also should not be made to fields inserted with the Citavi Add-In for Word. Our recommendation: display fields with shading, so that your proofreader doesn't inadvertently edit a field. On the Citavi pane click View > Field shading > Always.
