[#41014] Citing with "cf."

Problem

I want to automatically insert "cf." in front of all indirect quotations. How do I do this?

Solution

In Citavi 5 or 4 in the Citation Style Editor you can define a prefix for each quotation type (i.e. direct quotation, indirect quotation, summary, comment). This prefix will then be automatically inserted in front of the citation. You can find this setting in the Citation Style Editor under File > Citation style properties > Quotation affixes.

Alternatively, you can enter "cf." by hand using Insert advanced in the Word Add-In.
