To open a Citation database
To close a Citation datafile
Open more than one datafile at the same time
You can start more than one copy (called an “instance”) of Citation. This allows you to work with more than one datafile at a time. This will allow you to cut, copy and paste text or records between databases.
To start a second instance, you click “New Instance” from the File menu.
If you choose Citation from your word processor’s Tools menu, it will not start a new instance; it will simple activate the current instance of citation. This will allow you to switch easily between your word processor and Citation.
