Using Citavi in the United States

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

This placeholder conversion process is now 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.
