US$100 and...28 Days to Go!


Recommended Posts


I've only got 28 days of a free trial.  I was ALREADY charged US$100 for the "free" trial. That's a bit disappointing!  I guess I'll  get a refund if I cancel within the 30 days.

BUT!  That's not my actual question.  

So far, I'm REALLY happy with Citavi.  BUT...there's one feature that's missing for me.  Please help me understand if there's any workarounds.

Take for example this web page: https://www1.citavi.com/sub/manual5/en/keyboard_shortcuts.html

I've converted it into a PDF.

Now, reading the PDF, I've gotten to this line

Go to first list item Pos1

Seems like "Pos1" is what most folks in Germany call the "Home" key.  Fair enough.  Now, what I need to be able to do is to type some wee visible annotation onto the face of the PDF so that I can SEE that Pos1 = Home straightaway.  Nothing to open.  Nothing to click.  Just text right there.

I know I can yellow highlight, and red highlight.  

Red highlighting would add an interface / Knowledge Item.  But, that's not really convenient.  There's no "knowledge" there for me, actually.  I just need to drive a little flag into the ground so that when I READ the PDF I can see a handwritten note / flag.

Is there any way we can type text onto PDFs, so that if I just want to see my writing next to the pages, I can add that?

Put another way, how can I get some visible text ONTO the page of a PDF that is not put away in some dialog box that I need to open?

Hello Triklu, sorry for not replying sooner. We were on leave for the holidays. The German university is correct, though you can highlight a text in a PDF and add indirect, direct or ideas which you can then add to a text box and the knowledge organizer to see everything in one place. Here is a link to Citavi Support page for more information on how to use Citavi https://www.citavi.com/en/support/overview
