Help us Test Citavi 6!

There is no such thing as software without errors and that applies to Citavi as well.
We naturally want to find and eliminate as many bugs as possible and kindly request that you help us in this endeavour by installing the Citavi 6 beta version. Do everything that you would usually do in Citavi and try out any new features. Let us know here in this forum about errors or anything that strikes you as strange or contact us directly.

We're grateful for every reported bug and for any other feedback you would like to share with us!


Find out here what's new and what's changed in Citavi 6.

Here's how to get started
  1. Download the Citavi 6 Beta Setup here (= Citavi Build 5.8.21.0).
  2. Choose the Custom option (see below).
  3. If you don't have a Citavi account, register now: see this guide in our manual.
Here's how you can help test Citavi 6:
  • Let us know about bugs or missing features: www.citavi.com/bugreport. Please note that you will not receive a confirmation email or a personal reply unless we have additional questions.
  • The best way to help is to send us usage information: Tools > Options > General > Product development > Send usage information to help improve Citavi.
Important
  • You can install Citavi 6 without first uninstalling Citavi 5. Both versions can be used in parallel. During setup, make sure to select Custom.
  • Citavi Word Add-In: When you install the Citavi 6 Word Add-In, it will replace the Citavi 5 Word Add-In. You will no longer be able to create publications with your Citavi 5 projects.
    However, you can switch back to the Citavi 5 Word Add-In by uninstalling the Citavi 6 Word Add-In from the Windows Control Panel. Then, install Citavi 5 again from the Windows Control Panel.
  • Picker: When you install the Citavi 6 Pickers, they will replace the Citavi 5 Pickers. However, the Pickers work with both Citavi 5 and Citavi 6. Information will be sent to the project that is currently open.
  • Backward compatibility: A Citavi 6 project cannot be opened in Citavi 5.

We look forward to hearing your feedback!
Your Citavi Team
