Format Endnote Bibliography Pages 09 Update

I've had the same problem, wrignj08.  How frustrating that there isn't some automatic function key that can be pressed to reformat the Bibliography with the new, corrected information.  Surely, it wouldn't be that difficult to include.

 

The other problem I have found which is even more frustrating is that even when I have checked my reference list before writing my assignment so I won't have this problem with the bibliography, there are some references which still come up incorrectly even though I have corrected them.  For example, the journal article title in the bibliography comes up in capital letters even though I corrected it in my reference list to have small letters with leading letter capitals. eg. 'Language Teaching' corrected from 'LANGUAGE TEACHING'.  Is this to say that even errors which are imported using the style of that database or library site cannot be corrected?

 

Sometimes I wonder if technology like this is made to make life easier or to drive us mad.

How to find the Pages plugin to make it work with EndNote

A Pages Bundle should be located in the Cite While You Write Folder in your Applications / EndNote X8 folder.

If you have downloaded Pages '09 from the Mac App Store, and do not see the Pages Bundle in the Cite While You Write Folder, you will need to install the Pages EndNote Plug-in from the Apple website: https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT204395
