Are you saying that Citavi allows you to copy its raw field code to the clipboard, as Endnote does? Because Mendeley and Zotero does not copy its citation field to clipboard; it copies only the text representation of the citation and therefore when you merge the Scrivener docs into one Word doc Mendeley and Zotero cannot keep track of citations to the same reference.

Whereas in their add-ins to Word, they both copy the citation field; hence it would be nice to have them added in to Scrivener.
