Hi, I am brand new to the forum.
I am working on my dissertation with X5. Everything is going well so far. I have reached an impasse. Maybe my initial layout logic is faulty. Maybe my brain is mush.
My problem - I have the material for all three chapters in a serial fashion in one word document. This was the easiest way to keep track of everything at the time. In others words I have a few paragraphs - up to five pages of either paraphrased material or quoted material one reference a time with the cite at the end section. I then go on the next reference and so on.
I am ready to start moving everything around to the correct chapters and combining citations to complete the draft of the first three chapters.
I have two (I hope) simple questions.
First, how do I cut and paste a sentence from one citation and move it to a completely different part of the word document outside of the current reference but still keep X5 aware of the cite? For instance I might quote different parts the same reference in both chapters one and two.
Second, how after moving (copy and pasting) material from multiple locations to combine into a sentence or a few sentences from multiple citations in other locations into a new set of sentences or paragraph to meet APA 6th format? For instance can I combine (copy and paste) two references and have X5 end up with a result similar to (author, 1994; author & author, 2000)
Thanks in advance for your time.
