Importing folders as categories

You have a folder with subfolders containing PDF files. You now want to export the folder structure in Citavi as a category system and import the PDF files at the same time.

This add-on imports all PDFs as references and creates a category system containing the references.

1.On the Tools menu, click Manage add-ons.

2.Select the Import folders as categories add-on. Then, click Install and restart Citavi.

3.On the References menu, click Import folders as categories.

4.Select the top-level folder on your computer that contains the folders with the PDFs you want to import.

5.Wait until a window appears that displays the results of the import.

Please note

The import takes place in the background and can last a few minutes. No progress bar is displayed. While the add-on is working, you cannot continue working on your project.
