Organizing Quotations and Thoughts Manually

You can perform an initial sorting of the quotations and thoughts you add to a reference by assigning categories to them. You can then expand or change this organization at any time. To do so, either create new categories, or edit the categories already assigned to quotations and thoughts.

To see the quotations and thoughts in a particular category, switch to the Knowledge Organizer and click the category name in the navigation pane. The editing pane will show the contents of the category in a list.

To change the order of the quotations and thoughts in the list, click the entry you want to move and then click the up or down arrows or via the shortcut menu. Hold the Ctrl key and click several entries to select them and move them all at once.

Getting StartedSorting Quotations and Thoughts

New thoughts appear in one of two ways in the Knowledge Organizer:

If the thought does not have a category assigned to it, Citavi will place the thought at the end of the All and No categories lists.

If a quotation or another thought is highlighted, the thought will be placed below the highlighted quotation or thought.
