Re: Flawed citation style

This is a temporay (unformatted) citation but where it wouldn't print the author (hide author option).  if you click update citations and bibliography it will format them, but without the author in a Author, year style. 


 You can get Endnote to still insert the author if you edit and  turn off the option to  the option to "Omit Author and/or Year from formatted citations if removed from temporary citation"  in the  "formatting" preferences in Endnote.  (edit>preferences)  


see attached image for the appearance of those settings dialogue.
