Changing the Gender of an Author
The following chapter is only pertinent if you use a citation style that calls for abbreviations that depend on the author's gender, such as id. or ead. These types of abbreviations are much more common in German-language styles. Citavi automatically tries to assign a gender to an author based on the author's first name (this feature requires an active internet connection).
If the gender cannot be determined, you may need to add the gender yourself. You may also need to make corrections to the automatic gender identification.
