Inserting Knowledge Items

You can insert quotations and thoughts from your Citavi project into your document with just a click.

  1. Place the insertion point where you would like to insert the quotation or thought.
  2. On the Citavi pane on the Knowledge tab, double-click the item you want to insert. Or, select the item and then click Insert.
  3. If you are using a citation style that uses footnotes, Citavi will insert the knowledge item into the main text and the citation in a corresponding footnote.


Once you have inserted a knowledge item into Word via the Add-In, it is no longer linked to your project. You are now free to modify its content in Word to your liking. The original knowledge item can still be viewed in your project. Modifying it will not affect items already inserted into Word.
