Sorting in Table View

Table view is useful for sorting the contents of your project numerically (for example, by year of publication) or alphabetically (for example, by author). Simply click a column header to sort by that column.

To open the table view, in the Reference Editor, click Table Icon: Table View or press Alt+Ctrl+T.

To sort alphabetically or numerically by a column, click the header of that column. Citavi sorts entries from A to Z and from 1 onwards.

Click the header again to reverse the sort order.

To sort by an additional column, hold the Shift key and click another column header.


To quickly switch to a reference in the selected column, begin typing the word or name. For example, if the table is sorted by title, you could start to type man to jump to the reference "Managing Unstructured Information".
