I want to enter some references in EndNote X7 that are nearly identical except for one or two fields. Is there a way to avoid manually typing in all the information for each record? That is, is there a way to duplicate a record and then edit the second record with the new information?
in the library? Sure. Simply select the reference you want to copy, ctrl C then ctrl V – voila, two copies, you can open the second one and edit it.
Thanks. just the info I needed
This function seems to be broken in ENX7. I use it all the time to create references for chapters within edited works. No matter what I do, Paste is grayed out. Any idea what’s wrong? I can copy a reference and paste a citation into another app, but can’t paste a copy of a reference into my own library. Never had a problem with this in ENX6.
Now it started working again. I didn’t quit, reboot, or anything else. I’m mystified – but at least it’s working.
Sometime, I see that, and then realize I am in the online mode or something silly like that.
Thanks…really helpful…why not simple obvious way to do this from the drop down menus?
I suspect because it isn’t that common of a need and it is so easy?
