Sorting Quotations and Thoughts

If you have been using Citavi to excerpt quotations and add your own thoughts, it's a good idea to take a look at these knowledge items from time to time and reorganize them.

In the Knowledge Organizer you can sort all of your knowledge items (quotations, thoughts, and summaries). For example, you can move or copy a quotation to a different category or assign it to multiple categories. To view uncategorized knowledge items, click No categories.

1 Switch to the Knowledge Organizer.
