I am working with X4.0.2, on a Macbook with OSX 10.7.2 (Lion).
I am completing a thesis that uses many images: some that are photos I’ve created, some that are archived photos, some that are screen shots, and some that are images such as charts or maps, taken from PDF docs. I manage them in Aperture, but have exported a number of them that I intend to use in the Thesis; these are in the correct size/aspect ratio for inserting, using Word 2011 with CWYW.
I have these images ready to be brought into EndNote X4 (or I could upgrade to X5). The workflow would be to
create a record, type “Figure”.
Add the figure from Finder.
Add the appropriate information .e.g.image maker/source, date, name and caption.
Then, I’d like a second automator to be able to insert the figure into Word, along with the caption, and required reference info (APA 6th). However, I will modify the placement to be inline with text, rather than as appendices (although I might have to change that in future iterations, e.g. dissertation or journal submissions).
Since I have a good 100 images to add, l’d like to automate this, or I’ll have carpal tunnel in no time! And have a lot of grey hair (um, actually, just more than I already have…)
I’m not a scripter, though I’ve played a very little bit with Automator. But I would like to be able to just use a keystroke shortcut for each of these actions.
Is there anyone who has done this already, or that could offer advice?
Thanks so much!
