I’m not familiar with these tools, so I’m wondering what the desired output here is. Does this convert a raw citation into a formatted citation? Or is it that you want to see the bibliographic info for the given raw citation code? Or is the problem that you don’t want to have your citation manager running simultaneously?

Is it not possible to just manually copy and paste a raw reference code such as the cited example of {Koffka, 1922, #6475} directly into Scrivener and then get whatever add-on (e.g. EndNote’s MS Word add-on) that recognises that in whatever destination software (e.g. MS Word) to convert them into real citations at the end? That solution does require that e.g. the EndNote window is open, for you to be able to copy and paste the raw citation code.
