EndNote 20: Bring back insert citation icon (shortcut) in EndNote

Bring back the  insert citation icon (shortcut) in EndNote. It is not userfriendly to have to do this with a menu based three-clock solution!

Best wishes

i agree that it is not practicle to have a 3 steps solution while in Endnote X9 it was direct insertion with the icon. Definitely you should bring back the citation Icon!!!

+1 top bringing back the “insert citation” icon in Endnote!

More cumbersome doing it from word and “searching” for the articles I want!

+1 to bringing back the icon! So much simpler!

I put in a enquiry form and got this response

"

I am sorry for the trouble you are experiencing with the EndNote Program. I will be glad to assist you. 

 

We are sorry to inform you that the Development Team has removed that feature based on a customer response feedback form.

 

With that said, you can try following the below instruction and check how that works:

 

1) Open EndNote and Word.

 

2) Select the references in the EndNote library.

 

3) Click Tools > Cite While You Write [CWYW] > Insert Selected Citations.

 

Or

 

1) Open EndNote and Word.

 

2) Select the references in the EndNote library.

 

3) Go to Word > select the EndNote 20 tab > click the “Insert Citations” drop-down > Insert Selected Citations."

Agreed! The insert citation button gave a very convenient way to add a citation to a document. I don’t understand why this was taken away. Not everyone is going to remember the short cut key either. Bring it back!

I have over 20,000 refs in my library and they have really made my life miserable

Absolutely agree!!!

The convenient “Insert Citation” button in Endnote was practically the last reason to stay, as (to my knowledge) all other Citation Managers have resorted to your current solution.

You removed the one solid argument to pay for a program so many others are offering for free. This is absolutely outrageous.

Please re-insert this very crucial and distinctive feature of your program.

Having to search everytime is a complete pain!!! - what is the point of an expensive upload if its less connvenient to use??? - PLEASE RESTORE THIS FUNCTION OR I WILL RECLAIM THE PURCHASE PRICE FROM THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY ON THE BASIS OF A MISS-SOLD PRODUCT WITH DECEITFUL INTENT - SINCE THIS IS A BACKWARD STEP AND NOT AN ADVANCE IN USEFULNESS!!

Agree!

Starting to regret upgrading from EndNote 9X.  Please bring back insert citation icon.

Highly agree with this request.

When I’m working quickly inserting references, I prefer to have an insert button both in Word AND in Endnote.

Please!

Totally and utterly agreed!  Loosing “the button” slows down the writing process :frowning:

I totally agree. It was a very bad decision to remove the insert citation tab from the EndNote X20 tabs bar.
