Re: Alternate keyboard?

Yes, I had thought Endnote was unable to use the full gamut. So far, my 
experience with testing out the Windows XP Czech keyboard indicates that 
results are very unreliable: what looked fine one day may transmogrify into 
other letters next time I open Endnote.

I've said it again and will repeat it, support for international characters 
is pretty important for scholars in a wide range of disciplines. For 
example, even a musicologist using only English-language sources would 
(should) feel embarrassed to refer to the composer Antonin Dvorak without 
the correct diacritical marks on his name (which I am leaving out in e-mail 
for the same reasons as apply to Endnote). E-mail, at least, is a 
relatively informal medium, but scholarly bibliographies and footnotes are 
not. And even the diacriticals that work (French and German) are a real 
pain to put in with any frequency.

IEEE Filters

I was wondering if anybody knows of filters to get records from IEEE
databases.

Thanks.

Hi all,
=20
I am about to upgrading from endnote 4 and can choose between versions =
6

7. Does anyone know if endnote 7 has any problems? I wont be using a =
PDA
so does it have any other worthwhile features or should I stick to
endnote 6 so I have tech support???

Thanks in advance.

RE: endnote-interest-digest

Hi,
I think it is a very useful function. I have been asking ISI whether
they would include either a "checkbox" (c.f. Ref Man) or "highlighting"
function in Endnote for many many years, to no avail. Instead, there are
loads of useless knickknacks in each upgrade, which served nothing more
than boosting sales to the newbies. Checkbox, checkbox, checkbox,
checkbox.............. please!!!

Hello,
  Is it possible to highlight selected references in an endnote library.
I
wish to highlight (via colour, font style, etc...) those references for
which I have photocopies.

Thanks for your help,
  Justin

RE: endnote-interest-digest V1 #1434 Highlighting references

The easiest way to do this is to modify one of the reference fields
(Edit..Preferences..Reference Types..Modify)
You can change a field you don't use eg. Call Number. Change it to Reprint
or Photocopy.
If you've numbered your photocopies you can enter the number for each
article in the reference window. 
You can view them in your library window by changing the fields displayed
(Edit..Preferences..Display fields)
In the Heading column type Photocopy adjacent to the field 'Call Number'.

Re: IEEE Filters

It doesn't exist. You can't do downloads to endnote in IEEE.

We have prepared a fairly comprehensive guide to the new features in EndNote
7. See:
http://www.library.uq.edu.au/endnote/new_in_endnote7.html

It may help you to make a decision.

Endnote repeated authors, complex authors

Hello. I am using Endnote 6 with Word XP, Turabian style. I have a lot of 
complex authors that the Endnote help files refer to as corporate authors. 
I can't get them to show properly in my footnotes. So, e.g., if the author 
is the U.S. Government, when it appears after the first time in my 
footnotes, it shows up as "Government, ... ", as if Government is the last 
name. The help files say you should enter the names with a comma after the 
full name in the Endnote files, so I have corrected all my names to this 
format, e.g. "U.S. Government, "--this is supposed to understand the entire 
name before the comma as the last name. But in my Word document, these 
names are still appearing as "Government, U.S. ". I have also edited the 
Turabian style to display names in the footnotes as  First Last, not Last, 
First, but I am still getting "Government,  " in repeated occurrences of 
the name. (That is, the first time the reference appears in a footnote it 
displays as FIrst Last, but every time thereafter it displays as Last, .

Any suggestions??

Thank you,
Frances Garrett

RE: Endnote repeated authors, complex authors

What does it say in the style, under footnotes repeated citations?  There is
an option to "use the short form" -what if you take that off?  I am not
familiar with footnotes and their formatting in Turabian (-or anywhere else
for that matter), so a humanities person might be able to answer this
better.

Re: Upgrade

Here are my two cents worth on upgrading. I went from Endnote 5 to 
Endnote 7 for the simple reason that I was tempted by the promise of 
being able to load my bibliography onto my Palm. At the moment, I did 
not have any need for the other improvements. So far, however, my 
experience with the Palm version has suggested that I should have 
waited. The first several times I tried to install my bibliography on my 
palm I kept getting fatal error messages on it. We were able to figure 
out that it was not a memory problems (nor should it have been for it 
was a very new Tungsten model). Eventually, and through the assistance 
of the tech support people at ISI, we were able to get a version of my 
bibliography installed on my Palm, but only by exporting and reimporting 
the file (which changed all the reference numbers). Even after this 
drastic solution I  found that much of the information in the earlier 
file had been stripped away along with a few individual references. 
Fortunately I had kept a backup of the original bibliography and so I 
have restored it and have decided to forego the Palm version until if 
and when all the bugs are worked out. In short, I would not recommend 
upgrading at this point in time if your interests are primarily in Palm 
functionality.
