Endnote X8 Error Message when attempting to import citations into Word 2016 Document

When attempting to insert selected citations into a MS Word document, I am getting this message. "This method or property is not available because the drawing operations cannot be applied to the current selection". I have tried to insert ten different references with no luck.

 

The document had previously had the MS Word References function used. But I converted all the references to text only format and deleted the bibliography and nothing is helping.


I need to get these references inserted into the document.

Can you insert citations into a new document?  If so, there must be something about the attributes of the document you converted.

Re: Endnote X8 Error Message when attempting to import citations into Word 2016 Document

I have been testing Endnote X9 with different templates. I got the error that you described when I attempted to enter reference in some pre-defined text fields. I guess that there is conflict between what Endnote wants to do and what MS Word document rules allow.

 

Attached is the screenshot of the issue I experienced. 

 

Hope that helps,

 

Cheers,
