Is it possible to update individual references in a document without updating all of them at once? I have a 700+ page doc.; I normally turn off auto-conversion to avoid the process of EN X.6.02 (Mac) chugging through thousands of references to update the most recent addition. But occasionally I want to update only one at a time: is this possible? If not, I’d like to make this a feature request.
This is not currently possible with EndNote. For what reason would you like to be able to format a single citation? If it is to confirm the format meets with your needs, you can try inserting into a new document.
I think it is because a huge document takes forever to unformat/reformat and then may lose the “traveling library” piece of a reference that isn’t in the authors endnote library, from a colleague. I would like to be able to do this too.
That seems an awkward and time-consuming work around! Nor does it always work. In some cases the test in a blank document gives a different result from the document I am working on (even if this shouldn’t happen).
Thanks. I meant to second (or first) your view.

There Jasons, I completely agree with jiporter! Endnote is incredibly slow. I am also working on a 300+ pages document and to add one single citation takes one minute. It would be nice to have at least the option to enter a citation and AT THE SAME time add the prefix, suffix and page number. It makes absolutely no sense to first enter the citation and then edit the citation. This should be possible to achieve with one step. To enter and update only one citation would be, of course, even better!
