Re: How to merge in text citations

strange.  make a copy, unformat  to unformatted citations, and update.  If that doesn't work I would call tech support (see any of TMartins posts for how).

Re: How to merge in text citations

So I found a fix for this issue in Endnote X9 on mac.

 

Convert to Unformatted Citations (Endnote bar, Tools, Convert to Unformatted Citations)

Note- my citations became {Author, year, number} {Author, year, number}

 

Find and replace "} {" to "}{" (delete all the spaces between citations).

(If you have any naturally-occurring (non-citation) "} {" brackets in your text, change these uniformly before this step.

 

Update Citations and Bibliography. 

Note- I had to copy and paste plain text into a new word document before doing this final step, otherwise it would have me go through and manually identify many citations, then in the end didn't do what I wanted. I am not sure why I had to copy and paste the text to a new doc, but it helped avoid this).

 

Hope this helps for those encountering this issue over a decade after it was originally fixed.
