EndNote desktop: self-paced learning

Copy Formatted

While the main use of EndNote is for adding in-text citations and getting an automatically maintained reference list, sometimes it is useful to create a quick, static, standalone reference list.

  1. Once created, this list will have no connection back to EndNote.
  2. In EndNote, ensure sure your style is selected.
  3. Select some references (use Ctrl+click, or Cmmd+click on a Mac, to toggle selection of individual articles on and off).
  4. Use the Edit menu, Copy Formatted (Ctrl+K) - you cannot use the normal Copy (Ctrl+C).
  5. Change to Word.
  6. Paste.
