I’m seeing an intermittent issue with field shading in Endnote X7.2 on OSX.
Specifically, in some documents, Endnote citations formatted in author-year format are not showing field code shading. When they are in the default format (e.g., (Smith, 2001) they are shaded, but when I convert them to author-year format (eg., “Smith (2001)”) they lose their field code shading.
Specifically, when I right click a reference and then click “edit citations” and then “display author (year)”, Endnote updates the citations, and briefly highlights (perhaps half a second) the author-year formatted citation with shading. And then the shading disappears.
I did not have this issue with Endnote X6. Note that I am aware about the options in Word to always show field code shading and this is on. This is frustrating because it is important to know whether text is a proper Endnote citation as opposed to just plain text.
