Field-Dependent Punctuation

Hello, all!

 

I am new to EndNote, and as such I am not too familiar with editing styles. I would like to change the bibliography template for books to have a period at the end of the title if there is no edition for the book, but I need a comma after the title if there is an edition present. How can I set EndNote to change punctuation based on whether this optional field is filled?

 

Thank you!!

Re: Field-Dependent Punctuation

Endnote templates have two types of characters that allow this.  Forced separation (which can be typed as the pipe character | )  and link adjacent (which looks like a tiny diamond character instead of a centered dot space character), both of which can be added from the insert field dropdown.  

 

so Title|,*Edition|.  

 

combination (where * is link adjacent) would have a full stop after the title, if there was no edition, and comma Edition.  if there was an edition.
