Don't Manually Change Citavi Fields

When you insert a citation from your Citavi project into your document using the Citavi Word Add-In, it will be inserted in a Word content control. After you insert it you cannot edit it manually. See the recommendations below for how to make changes to your citations.

Adding Page Numbers

If you want to cite page numbers for a citation such as (Miller 1994), double-click the content control. In the Word Add-In on the Citations tab, the reference is selected. Enter the page numbers in the Page range field. After you leave the content control, the citation will be updated in your document.

Correcting Typos

If you notice that an author name is misspelled, double-click the content control in Word. In the Word Add-In on the Citations tab, the reference is selected. Right-click the reference and select Edit in Citavi. Correct the name in your Citavi project. When you switch back to Word, all citations for the reference are updated.

Correcting Formatting

If you want author names to appear with different formatting, for example in small caps, change your citation style or edit the citation style you are using. After changing or editing the style, all citations are updated.
