Re: Citavi + Scrivener

I am using this combination now (although still early in my learning curve). Seems to work similar to EndNote, in that:
1) I have both programs open and running on a dual monitor system,
2) search for and copy the reference from Citavi to the Clipboard (using full program or smaller “Publication Assistant” window),
3) paste the citation marker in Scrivener; e.g., {Yin 2003 #393}
4) compile from Scrivener to RTF,
5) use the Publication formatter in Citavi to produce a formatted (i.e., APA, MLA, Chicago style) Word DOCX file from the Scrivener RTF, complete with bibliography.

Yes, it sounds as though there are lots of steps, but it is really quite fast and easy.

Hope that helps,
