Inconsistent layout options for bibliographies

The way bibliographies are formatted has been changed, and it now needs to be set in the Word Endnote menu, whereas previoussly Endnote respected the Bibliography style as defined by the user, which could be different in different dociments and templates. 

 

I think it is not a good interface to have 3 different ways of changing the styles, and esp. that there is an automatic override. In the edit output styes, in word styles, and now in this case in the configure bibliography menu.

The bibliography style should be editable through the word styles, and not changed without user interaction by endnote. It then should be stable in each document.

 

(I still miss the good old simple mac-like interface from before the merger with RIS. Simplicity is always important, and consistency, not only within the specific software, but with the general platform interface consepts)
