I am having trouble modifying the abbreviated author list fields in the author lists panel. I would like to modify the vancouver style to include et al. for above three author names.
When I attempt to rewrite the abbreviated author list to:
If ‘3’ or more authors list the first 1 author
and abbreviate with , et al.
when I try and close the window I am asked if I would like to save the changes. If I click to save I am returned to the author lists panel. I can only close the panel if I click don’t save changes.
Are you working with Endnote Web or Endnote?
--I suspect you have your Endnote preferences (edit>preferences: folder location) pointing to a write protected location or in the program folder/endnote/styles folder (which is write protected at least in Vista). Create a folder in somewhere like “my documents” and change your preferences to point there.
I don’t think you can be working with Endnote Web, because I don’t think you can easliy edit those styles.
Thank you for your advice it solved my problem and I am sorry I was in the incorrect forum.
