Archive: Citavi 4 Preview 1

Postby Antonio Tejada » 2012-05-21 14:27

We are pleased to show you the first preview release of Citavi 4.

The final release of Citavi 4 will include many improvements and new features. Preview 1 showcases the following features:

  1. Add-In for Microsoft Word
    The Citavi Add-In for Microsoft Word 2010 and 2007* sets the new standard for efficiency, ease of use, and interaction for academic writing with Word. With the Add-In, placeholders and subsequent formatting are a thing of the past.

    Please share your experiences with us: What did you like? What would you like changed? Did you run into problems?

    *The Add-In for Word 2003 will follow. The 64-bit version of Office 2010 is not supported.

    Known Limitations of the Add-In for Word
    • The Convert menu on the Citavi tab of the ribbon is unavailable. Once enabled, it will allow you to convert documents to and from legacy Citavi placeholders.
    • The first time Preview 1 is started, it imports projects from Citavi 3, but not settings.
    • The icons in the Add-In are all temporary.
    • On the Citations tab of the Citavi task pane, under Numeral system, Uppercase letters and Lowercase letters are unavailable.

  2. Improved Category Editor
    The category field was previously read-only and required using the category dialog box to assign categories. The category field in Citavi 4 allows you to type categories directly. Try it!

  3. Edit Knowledge Items In Place
    You can now edit knowledge items right in the list by double-clicking. The knowledge item editor hasn't gone away, but for everyday editing, in-place editing is quicker.

  4. Improved Installer
    Citavi 4 now uses the popular, powerful installation tool InstallShield. For most users, this is not terribly interesting, but for system administrators, this is a huge improvement. Should you run into issues during installation, please let us know!

  5. Under the Hood
    Citavi 4 is now based on .NET Framework 4, the latest and greatest version of Microsoft's development platform.

Important
This preview is an early version to show new features as they are being developed, still early enough in the process to consider feedback regarding look and feel, but potentially with significant bugs. It should not be used with important data. New features can introduce new bugs of their own, so please post if you find one.



This version is no longer available.
