Why citations do not follow my style?

Postby a6l3i » 2011-02-26 20:16

System information: [ 3.0.3, windows7, Word 2010, -, -, - ]


I create my style for "in-text Citation" and also "bibliography". In citavi a can see preview of my refrences without any problem.
But when i insert citations to word-2010, citavi follows its defult style, while i selected my style in citation menu.
its noticable that, by pressing "Save project bibliography", i can create bibliography based on my style. and the problem is only with In-text Citations".

Best Regards,

Hi A.S.,

When you insert in Word, you are not inserting the finished citation, but rather a placeholder. Then, in a second step, you format the entire document: on the Citation menu, point to Format publication > Choose documents and select your manuscript. Make sure your citation style is selected, then format. Citavi saves the formatted document as a copy. Always make changes to the unformatted document and then format again.
