Citavi Beta 5.1.5 [Archive]

Postby Jennifer Schultz » 2015-09-22 10:24

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

New Features
  • It's now possible to use pan mode in the preview pane.
  • Text in PDF files can be selected with the rectangular text selection tool.
  • In-text citations can now be linked to their entries in the bibliography. See the Citavi Manual for additional information.
  • It's now possible to save a local copy of a project that is saved on an SQL server or in Azure SQL.

Changed Features
  • Red highlight knowledge items are now inserted in Word as references only. The text of highlighted passages is no longer inserted.
  • The Citavi for DBServer Manager interface has been simplified.

Resolved Bugs
  • When importing from a file containing tabular data, the path to the cover file could not be selected.
  • When importing multiple PDF files at once, a cover was only created for the first reference imported.
  • When moving authors from a reference, the list of authors was automatically sorted alphabetically.
  • In the "Search and replace" dialog, the option "A = a" did not work correctly.
  • When loading a saved search, the Boolean operators in the drop-down fields of the Advanced search were changed.
  • In the Reference Editor in the group column, the views (All) and (No groups) could be deleted by pressing the Delete button. Doing this caused an error to occur.
  • When copying a reference to another Citavi project, unnecessary spaces were inserted in the Place of publication field if the field contained multiple entries separated by semicolons.
  • In the PDF search the Whole words option did not work.
  • In the PDF search the Case sensitive option did not work.
  • The automatic export of annotations from a PDF file did not function as expected under certain conditions.
  • In Windows 10 the letter descenders (e.g. for the letter "g") were cut off in dropdown menus.
  • Citavi normalized the page numbers in the Page range field in Citavi and in the Word Add-In. Page numbers entered as "003", for example, were automatically changed to "3".
  • A project that was saved on a network drive using File > Save a copy of this project could not be opened directly and displayed an error message.
Word Add-In
  • If a reference was inserted with the Do not add to bibliography option, the option had to be selected each time the reference was inserted again.
  • Inserting knowledge items caused list formatting to revert to the Normal style.
Citavi for DBServer
  • Settings were not saved across sessions.
  • Renaming a database under MS SQL Server Express 2008 and 2012 caused an error to occur.
  • When renaming a project, a Windows user was added as a DB user if his or her permissions were inherited from an Active Directory group.
  • User names containing an underscore were displayed without the underscore on the Manage licenses tab.
  • The creation of new Citavi databases in SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 did not work in DBServer Manager.
  • Importing a local project caused an error to occur.
  • When creating or deleting a DBServer project a Windows user was added as a DB user if the user's permissions were inherited from a Windows group.
This version is no longer available.
