Migrate from Citavi
Import your existing Citavi 5 and Citavi 6 libraries directly into Paperpile following the steps below.
- Open Citavi and create a backup of your project. You will find this option in the File menu.
- Locate the backup on your computer. It's a file with the file ending with ctv5bak or ctv6bak. The backup file is actually a zip file. In order to extract it, replace the Citavi file ending with zip.
- Once the zip file is extracted, you should see ctv5 or ctv6 files. These files can directly be uploaded to Paperpile.
- Back in Paperpile, open the menu, choose Upload Files and add the extracted ctv5 or ctv6 files to the upload dialog. Click Start upload to begin.
