I'm having trouble with in-text citations. I would like Endnote to write ibid. instead of the author's name if the name is being repeated immediately afterwards (like it does with footnotes). How can I make Endnote recognize this? Does it depend on the output style?
Thank you for your help in advance.

I don't believe that EndNote has this feature. As far as I know ibid is only used in footnotes and not in bibliographys.
at least that is what Yahoo answers says!

Thank you very much for your answer. But in my case I didn't want to use it in the bibliography but within the text.
For example an in-text citation:
"He said this" (Doe 2008: 21). Some text to fill the space. But on the other hand, "[...] he said that" (ibid.: 22).
In the bibliography it would then use the full set of information, e.g.:
Doe, John (2008): Why it is This and That. Doetown: John's University Press.
The problem is, that until now Endnote would do it this way:
"He said this" (Doe 2008: 21). Some text to fill the space. But on the other hand, "[...] he said that" (Doe 2008: 22).
Is there a way to have Endnote recognize this? With footnotes it does.
Thanks a lot

If the programmers are looking at this: please implement this feature in the next Endnote version.
It is a pretty common practise/requirement in my field (human sciences) to use ibid. in-text, and the absence of a way to do this in Endnote (apart from manually, which pretty much defeats the purpose of using a reference management software in the first place) makes Endnote all but useless for researchers like me.
It's an annoyance as I've used Endnote for a while now but the discovery of the absence of this feature makes me have to switch to another software, with the bother of having to migrate/recreate my whole (extensive) library there.

has this feature been implemented in the new endnote version?
I agree that it is actually quiet a common requirement to use "ibid." in in-text citations.
Is there a way to do this automatically?
