Endnote – converting from Word to Pages

Hello, I’m soon going to start using Endnote (I have version X7.7.1). I have a few questions and would appreciate any advice. I have written a thesis in MS Word for Mac (14.7.7) but I am planning to convert the nine chapter docx files to Apple Pages (5.6.2), where I plan to compile them and format the thesis. I need to spend a few days (hopefully no longer than a week) doing what I should have done all along – use Endnote to create a bibliography from many citations throughout the thesis. I am wondering if I should do this with each individual docx file before converting to Pages? I am guessing it would be better to do all the Endnote work in Pages, as transferring from Word to Pages and expecting Endnote to keep track might be a recipe for headaches / technical problems?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Re: Endnote – converting from Word to Pages

Any fields generated by Endnote in Word will be converted to plain text in Pages (and remain plain text if you go back to word).  I don't know if you can convert to unformatted citations in Word and then format them in Pages.  I would do a test on a copy to see.

Re: Endnote – converting from Word to Pages

You can find this information on our website:

 

https://support.clarivate.com/Endnote/s/article/EndNote-Transferring-Documents-Between-Pages-for-Mac...

 

In Summary:

 

It is not currently possible to move references from Microsoft Word to Pages 09/5/6 in a way that maintains the link to EndNote- the references will still be there, but new references added will make a new reference list at the bottom.

 

It's possible to use an output style in Pages 09 / Pages 5 / Pages 6 that simulates the unformatted citations in Word, which would allow you to format the file in Pages then transfer it to Word.
