I’m writing a text in MS Word with some formulas, and for one formula i need [OG] within my text. Unfortunately, EndNote turns this automatically into a citation where the first editor’s name’s initials are O.G. How can I deactivate automatic citation insertion for that kind of format?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Best wishes from Austria,
The easiest way is to change your temporary citation delimiters to the curly bracket as opposed to the square brackets. You can do this as a one off for the specific manuscript from the format bibliography menu), or for all current and future manuscript (from edit> preferences)/
thanks for your hint! the problem is that in my preferences the markers ARE curly brackets as default setting! any idea why my [OG] is still handled as a short citation? couldn’t find anything concerning square brackets in my preference settings.
is it possible to simply deactivate citation by author initials?
or perhaps just to mark some words/phrases/paragraphs as “not containing any citations”?
I think we need more information. What word processor and version, endnote version, output style are you using? Is the [OG] in a formula which is also being handled as a field? If so, what addin is being used to create the formula? I was unable to reproduce any problem with including just the [OG] in a manuscript.
i use “L[OG]=…” for a definition, but just as plain text, without any special format. it is automatically changed to “L[Author, Year]” by endnote. i don’t have the problem with L[A] and L[V].
i think the problem is due to an entry in my endnote-bibliography where the first editor’s initials (not even the author’s initials) are “O.G.” - it’s this entry which shows up as L[…].
i’m using ms2010 and en x5 with an apa6-based output-style with some slight changes.
not sure if that is feasable, but i was wondering whether it is possible to mark some text/paragraphs etc. within a word document as not to be scanned by endnote?
Well the authors initials in the record should be O.<space>G. but that sounds like a bug anyway, and I would report it. There is no way to skip a paragraph, to my knowledge. You could trick word and put the paragraph in a text box with no border, but this shouldn’t be happening. I woul let tech support know and maybe they can look at the document and figure out what is going on.
