Compatibility with MS Word Content Controls


I am trying to use EndNote X9 in my documents that have content controls. When i insert a new citation within text that is inside a content control, I get the error message "Please move the insert point outside of any other field."


My cursor location is not inside legacy fields (gray background). Does EndNote X9 support content controls?


Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thx

Re: Compatibility with MS Word Content Controls

I was able to reproduce the same error so it does appear that EndNote cannot be used with Content Controls.



If you would like to see this feature in a future version of EndNote, You may want to submit a request for a product enhancement on our website.
