Curly Bracket Symbols (Braces)


My EndNote recognizes Braces symbols {} in my Word text as Field Codes and citations. how can I resolve the problem?


It sounds like ‘instant formatting” has been turned off so only the temporary citations appear in the document. To display the complete citations you’ll need to turn on instant formatting (see attached image which illustrates the procedure in MS Word 2010).

Possible also that  the Word setting “show field codes” has been turned on.  Does select all Shift F9 fix it?  

The CWYW preferences (on the Endnote ribon, has an option to have a "Turn off Word’s “Show field codes instead of their values” option.  If this is ticked, saving the document and reopening it might also fix it.
