Before citing references in a manuscript:
To review, the general process of inserting citations is:
(1) In Word, Go to EndNote,
(2) in EndNote, select the citation(s) to insert,
(3) Return to Word and Insert Citation(s). A temporary, unformatted citation will be inserted in the manuscript. If Cite While You Write is turned on, you may not see this temporary citation. Cite While You Write (CWYW) automatically scans the manuscript for temporary citations and formats the in-text citations and reference lists according to the active output style while you are working on the manuscript. With older computers, instant formatting can be a slow process; it can be turned off by selecting Cite While You Write Preferences from the EN submenu/ribbon. For more information about the citing references with EndNote, see the section below on using the Microsoft Word add-ins.
There are a few ways to place citations into a Word document. The simplest way is:
1) In the Word document, place the cursor where the citation is to be inserted
2) Open the EndNote toolbar and select Go to EndNote
3) Select the citation(s) to be inserted [Hold down the CTRL key to select individual citations; hold down the Shift key to select a block of citations. CTRL + A selects all library entries]
4) Select Insert Citation (Alt + 2) from the EndNote toolbar
[Note: make sure Instant Formatting is On is selected from the EndNote toolbar]
This action will insert the citations and simultaneously build a reference list at the end of the document.
