Indexing Pdfs and searchin within their content

Hello

Adding the feature of fully indexing pdf files to make their content searchable from within Citavi is definitely a feature that would transform the nature of the work accomplished using it. I read that a similar question has been asked about 7 months ago. But is it coming forth any time soon.

Thank you.
Hazem

Hello Hazem,

Thanks for your question! Right now, our main development priority is Citavi Web. Unfortunately, this means that other major features are on hold, including full-text search for all PDF files in a project. This is a frequently requested feature, however, so there's a good chance it might be added in a future version.

Best regards,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

Since I see that question surfacing repeatedly and know the problem well myself, I just wanted to point out the effective alternative for "multiple PDF search" through Adobe Acrobat (incl. Reader). The feature is called "advanced search"/"Erweiterte Suche" and can be called via the "Edit"/"Bearbeiten" menu or [Ctr]+[Shift]+[F].

Best regards,
Alex

P.S.: I'm looking forward to Citavi Web. I'm positive that if Citavi Web is developed and maintained with the same sense of detail and perfection, achieving the same high quality like the Desktop version, it's going to be a excellent. Keep it up.
