How to stop download links but download pdfs in Citavi?

I am using Citavi, in which I have a lot of references that don't have pdf. So I hope Citavi download it automatically. When I click the "Find full text" button in the Citavi, it always downloads links, so I need to click links to download pdfs. May you teach me to let Citavi download pdfs not links.

Hi Zhenyu, sorry for the delay in responding. If there is a non gated pdf, Citavi will bring it in. But many pdf articles are gated by the publisher. 

I see in some cases, Citavi only add links not pdf even if the pdf can be downloaded.

Hi Zhenyu

Have you tried clicking on Find Full Text. That will help you find a PDF that is accessible to bring in to Citavi (see below). If it's a link with a gated data base then you would need to go into the database and bring in the article into Citavi from there. Hope this helps Stacy
