Entering Author Genders
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 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. The gray icons let you know which names were not recognized and need to be specified manually
You can add first names to Citavi's first names database for names that could not be identified or if you want to change the gender of a first name already in the database.
