Hello, kudos to Endnote developers keeping the interface simple - but perhaps they could learn few things from the very intuitive user interface in use by Quickbooks developers, where the “system” attempts to learn from what you were previously trying to do, what you are attempting to do, and suggest with a quick popup, stuff that you can get done by reducing keystrokes. If you are researcher, and not an small business owner, without the need to do accounts now and then, this comment won’t mean anything to you - but I like that feature, it saves me time to enter a new record.
For example: putting in a new reference requires selecting (mouse) the type, then scrolling (mouse) the fields, then typing (mouse, keyboard), then scrolling (mouse), etc. etc. you get the picture. The key thing is if I am spending time entering, I am not spending time WRITING, but after it is all done, perhaps a small reminder occassionally (ala Quickbooks style) to backup the data would be very useful.
I have one newbie question: The titles of my own presentations come out different than what I put in: example below:
Haque, Samudra. “Development Report on Hybrid Communications Demonstration Network Trials.” In Internet: South Asian Realities and Opportunities. Dhaka: ICIMOD/Nepal, 1999.
________. “Lowering the Tco of Scpc Vsat Network Deployment.” In Satellite Application Technology Conference & Expo 2003. Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York, NY, 2003.
The word “Tco” and “Scpc” are incorrectly capitalised !! “Lowering the TCO of SCPC VSAT Network Deployment”.
What feature do I have to enable to have the bibliographic entries not change the capitilisation when cited ?
