Re: Cannot save changes to an X9 reference

[ Edited ]

Why not use Endnote's "Headline style capitalization"  for Title Capitalization, in the output style's Bibliography "Title Capitalization" setting, when it is required?  Though, in my field, cited references  rarely use headline style when citing a journal article.  Options are Leave as entered, headline style or Sentence style.

Dear Mgoodin,

 

Congratulations! However it is sometimes better to join a picture  (before and after) of the problem when you post a question.

Good luck

Hi Leanne,

Huh! It's lovely to learn a new thing Smiley Happy

 

The PhDs I've worked with show a preference for sentence case, as do a lot of the general styles they use. I've tried the sentence case option with APA 6th and it works nicely. It does require modification of the style (APA 6th default is "leave titles as entered") but would save the researchers quite a bit of time.

 

(Note: on testing, it converts proper nouns like people and place names to lower case, so some final "plain text" checking and tweaking would be required.

 

Clarivate has replicated my issue with changing of case not triggering the save. We'll see what the developers have to say about it.

 

Thank you.

Re: Cannot save changes to an X9 reference

There is an option to enter text words that should not be changed (for example, DNA, RNA, specified gene names, proper names, etc.)  

 

Edit>Preferences>change case  -- but this is specific to the computer station I think.
