Citavi Beta 5.0.17 [Archive]

Postby Peter Meurer » 2015-07-01 07:25

What you should know about beta versions
The purpose of a beta version is to find bugs before an update release. A beta version can be used with real projects, but make sure to backup your projects regularly.

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 Citavi 5 beta versions. Do everything that you've done up until now and try out any new features. Let us know here in this forum about errors or anything that strikes you as strange.

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

Improved Features:
  • Citavi for DBServer can be used with SQL databases saved in Azure.
  • In the dialog for the Attachments folder path, users can now enter variables, for example "%dropbox%\Information Literacy\Citavi Attachments". On each computer "%dropbox%" will now be resolved to the Dropbox path.
  • Users can now add words to the spelling checker dictionary.
  • The Citavi Picker can be used to import references from the legal database Juris.
Changed Features:
  • User management in Citavi for DBServer has been improved.
Resolved Bugs:
  • After an update to Windows Vista, several Citavi windows could no longer be opened.
  • Citavi 4 projects couldn't be converted to Citavi 5 projects if Google Drive had been installed on the computer at one time.
  • After converting a Citavi 4 project to a Citavi 5 project, the Task Planner sometimes displayed too few results if the filter Photocopy or scan was applied.
  • Under certain conditions the contents of "InitialSettings.crd" (a file with start options set by the administrator) were not applied correctly.
  • When converting a project from Citavi 4 to Citavi 5, images that were saved as ideas were not transferred to the Citavi 5 project.
  • Moving a PDF folder under File > Project properties > Paths caused an error to occur if a PDF document was open in the preview.
  • When importing from a file containing tabular data, an error could occur if the references contained categories.
  • When importing from a PDF file, the URL and the access date were not imported if they were in the PDF's metadata.
  • Importing a PDF file with Chinese characters could cause Citavi to crash.
  • If a formatted abstract was changed in a multi-user project, it could not be saved (Error message: Requested value 'AbstractRtf' was not found.)
  • Running a saved search with the parameter Yesterday returned incorrect results.
  • In the Knowledge Organizer it was no longer possible to merge two categories using the shortcut menu.
  • In the Table of Contents field, paragraphs were no longer displayed in annotated project bibliographies and the table of contents would appear as running text.
  • The contents of the Link to and Link from fields did not appear in table view.
  • Text that was entered in the Evaluation field would only appear on the Content tab after the user switched to another reference.
  • The Groups field on the Content tab displayed text as cut-off if the Windows display settings were set to 125%.
  • Hyperlinks in the Abstract field were not clickable on the Overview tab.
  • The keyboard shortcuts Shift+Insert and Shift+Delete (alternatives for Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V) no longer worked in formatted text fields.
  • Comments added to knowledge items were displayed above the knowledge item instead of below it.
  • If multiple quotations from the same page of a single reference were present, quotations that were edited automatically appeared at the end of the list instead of remaining where they were originally.
  • Saving all the attachments in a selection of references was not possible if only one reference had an attachment.
  • In the table view, sorting by number returned unexpected results if letters were also present in the column.
  • During a full text search the error message "Object is currently in use elsewhere" would sometimes appear.
  • The citation key setting First word only (ignore articles) did not ignore articles.
The Picker Family
  • The Picker did not save books on in Citavi.
  • The Picker icon appeared blurred on some webpages.
  • Citavi could not be started from the Acrobat Picker if it was not already running.
  • The Acrobat Picker did not insert the URL for a PDF when the PDF was added to Citavi.
  • The Firefox Picker did not display an icon next to ISBN numbers on certain webpages.
  • If Citavi 5 was started with the Internet Explorer Picker at the same time as a highlight was saved as a quotation, the notification window was displayed twice.
Word Add-In
  • It was not possible to jump from one citation of a reference to the next citation in the document.
  • If the user started typing page numbers for a reference, the correct page number type was not automatically applied.
  • Under certain circumstances, references could not be inserted in a table.
  • If the link symbol was clicked in the Word Add-In, the corresponding quotation was not selected in Citavi.
  • The Word Add-In only displayed new references in a DBServer project after switching to a another project.
  • If a DBServer project was started from the Word Add-In, the wrong Welcome Screen was displayed.
  • The feature Copy the reference into the current project did not work with DBServer projects.
  • DBServer projects were shown as open in the Word Add-In even if they had already been closed in Citavi.
  • The Help feature in the Word Add-In opened the manual for Citavi 4 instead of Citavi 5.
Citation Style Editor
  • The condition Placeholder has no quotation page range did not work.
  • The Editor would sometimes display the error message "Object Graph cannot be null. Parameter name: graph" if the user attempted to save changes after saving the style under a new name.
Citavi for DBServer
  • If a DBServer project could not be loaded, an instance of Citavi remained open in the background. As a result the Welcome Screen could no longer be displayed.

This version is no longer available.
