Citavi 4 Beta Citation Style Editor Error

Dear people at Citavi,
I have a citation style (ABNT Brazil) that requires me to use last names in capitals, so when I have a name like this:
Author: Morin, Edgar
The reference goes like this:
MORIN, Edgar ...

And it's correct. But I'm facing a problem when I have names like this:
Author: De Sousa Santos, Boaventura
Reference: De Sousa Santos Boaventura

It seems like the application doesn't work well with a "complex" last name. Another example is the citation of my own name:
Author: De Britto, Christian Maciel
In this case I need get my name formatted like this:
DE BRITTO, Christian Maciel

I'm using Citavi 4 Beta 3.9.35.0
Best regards from Brazil your'e really doing a very good job with this new version of Citavi. I cannot wait to see the final version.
Christian

Dear Christian

Thank you for your posting. Could you please check if Citavi has recognized your name as an institutional name? If you press F9 or right-click on your name you will enter the advanced editing mode for names. If you get this result ...
lastname.png
... please cut the first name and paste it in the correct field.

Why has this happened? Depending on the numbers of words before a comma, Citavi believes you have entered the name of an institution and stores everything in the field last name.

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Patrick,
Wow! I was checking the Portguese translation now and it seems PERFECT. Only in Word-AddIn Options that the help files are still in German. The translation is very clear with a nice flow and fits very well on the screen. Congratulations it seems that everything is almost done.
If I can help you in some way please tell me,
Best regards from Brazil,
Christian
