You will now be able to install EndNote X1 on your PC by going to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add New Programs.

Hiding empty reference fields

When viewing your references you can set EndNote to only display the fields which have information in them, reducing the length of your reference window.

  • Open a reference by double clicking on it from the list.
  • Click on the Hide empty fields option in the top right hand corner of the window.

If you want to view all the fields again, open your reference and click on Show empty fields.

Moving text in a Word document which contains EndNote references

If you want to move sections of text in a Word document that has EndNote references in it you need to make sure that you unformat the EndNote citations first, otherwise your references may get out of order. (Once you have re-ordered the document you can then reformat the references.)

  • Click on the Unformat ciatation(s) icon in the EndNote toolbar in Word
  • Temporary citations will be created and the list of references at the end of the document will disappear
  • Move the text using the cut and paste function as usual
  • Once the text is positioned correctly click on the Format Bibliograhpy icon in the EndNote toolbar to reformat the references.
