*This function is only available when using Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers and is not provided by Safari or other browsers.

*Please note that when special characters such as user-defined characters (gaiji ) or entities, etc. are copied, the data for these characters will be deleted (i.e. they will not display) when pasted into your word processing software.

*This function is invalid for copied text of 19 or fewer characters.

*If you select both "Knowledge Searcher" and "Citation insert function", the "Knowledge Searcher" message will appear first. In that case, click the [OK] button and then use the citation insert function.
