How to display author's first name/initial in library view?

So far, I only get the authors last name, which is fine until I have two Smiths, for example. How can I display at least the first name in the library view?

In EndNote X3 or X4, you can set this in Preferences. Just check the “Display all Authors in the Author Field.” option. See the attached screen shot.

I hope this helps.

OK, thanks. Not sure how I missed that, lol. Also, is there a way to shorten it to maybe just first initial?

You can re-size the Author field in the EndNote library view to just display what you want to see. But otherwise, no, there are just the two choices - the Last Name of the First Author or everything in the Author Field.

OK, thanks for the help.
