Hello DrAlex,

Thanks so much for the additional explanations! I will add the rest of these suggestions to our wishlist as well. I especially like the idea that Citavi could automatically tell which chapter you were quoting from based on the table of contents and then fill in the chapter name when you cite (if you're using a citation style that calls for this information). This may be technically difficult to implement, though.

As far as the covers are concerned, would you want Citavi to automatically insert different covers, so you could distinguish between references? For example, a blue cover for one reference and a green cover for another? If Citavi inserts the same default cover for all references that do not have cover information, I assume the default covers would not be very helpful.

Thanks again for all of your well-thought-out suggestions for making Citavi a better program! We can't promise anything in terms of implementation, unfortunately, but these features will be discussed during the planning for new versions.

Best regards,
Jennifer

Thank you for your work :)

I do not think so - for exemple, in quote Citavi is already determines if the page number is beyond the range of pages section. In any case, for the first, it can be realized only in manual mode, but must be the appropriate additional field, like a field for number of pages.

If Citavi inserts the same default cover for all references that do not have cover information, I assume the default covers would not be very helpful.

The final decision is yours. In many programs is being used (for example in media player Foobar2000).

For example, a blue cover for one reference and a green cover for another?


Different covers for different reference types: book, journal article, internet document, collected work and etc.

Hello DrAlex,

Thanks very much for your response! I now understand a bit better how you would like the default covers to appear.

As far as the automatic chapter detection is concerned, I guess I'll just have to see what the developers say.

Best regards,

Hi! It's me again :)

At this time, I just have a small wish - the google search of cover by the title of the book.

Hi DrAlex,

Thanks for the additional suggestion! Unfortunately, Google doesn't allow this, so we won't be able to add such a feature.

For example, this is done very simply In Media Player Foobar2000 - the program has a built-in search by album cover art. That is, what is offered to the user to do manually (go to the site images.google.com - type a search string - save the picture - and then enter in Citavi - select the image from comp.) - the program does itself, providing a convenient interface.

Hi DrAlex,

Although other programs may integrate with Google in this way, due to legal reasons we will not add this feature. However, usually you can add the Cover Art using the feature "Search for cover art by ISBN."

Hi DrAlex,

Could you send us the ISBN number so we can test why it's not being found?

Thanks so much!

For exemple:
5-89332-090-5
5-7429-0224-7
5867894223
978-5-904636-18-0

None of the ISBN in my database does not have a cover. In addition, I work a lot with the old editions when ISBN not yet exist.
