Some citation style requirements are so complex that they require multiple templates, as shown in the following example: Frawley, W.: Prolegomenon to a Theory of Translation. In: id. (ed.) Translation. Literary, Linguistic, and Philosophical Perspectives. Newark, Del. 1983, 159-175. Why is this problematic? Some styles distinguish between language and gender. If a contribution in an edited book is cited, the editor should not be written out, if the author of the contribution and the editor of the book as a whole are identical. Instead "id." should be used for a single man, "ead." should be used for a single woman, "eid." should be used for multiple male authors or a mixed group of male or female authors or "eaed." should be used for a group of female authors. For English-language references "(ed.)" should be used for the editor, while for German-language references (Hrsg.) should be used. When all of these rules are combined, 16 templates would be necessary to make the style work properly.
1 To add programmed code to a component, open the component's Properties.
2 To make changes to the properties of the component as a whole, double-click a blank area of the main editing pane (highlighted here in orange).
3 Enable the Filter output of this component part via program code option.
4 Click Add filter.
5 On the File menu, click Open. Select the script file that the Citavi Support team sent you. Click Compile. As long as no error messages are displayed, click Save.
6 You can now edit the component as you normally would, for example by adding prefixes or suffixes. Click OK. Programmed components are displayed with a gear symbol.
In Citavi 6 and later you can download template conditions from the Citavi server. On the Component menu, click Retrieve from the Citavi server.
