Change to parentheses (Endnote x7)

Have just added a new reference and the in-text citation comes up like this: {Dixon, 2012 #146}  instead of (Dixon, 2012). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Change to parentheses (Endnote x7)

Instant formatting is probably turned off. You see the citations in unformatted format. See EndNote tab no. 3 from left. Turn Instant formatting from "off" to "on".

 

You can also get the manuscript formatted by clicking on "Update Citations and Bibliography".

 

Best wishes

And make sure you have an Output Style selected on the Endnote ribbon.

Yep - checked that first!  But it's a good thing to point out to a new user like me.  I have the style set to APA 6th.

Re: Change to parentheses (Endnote x7)

Thank you for this message as I have just had this happen to me too for just one of my documents (not all).  It was the instant formatting option.  Panic level coming down.  Thanks for the info.
