You have a number of options for editing a citation that is already inserted in a text document.
Note that these changes only affect the one citation you have selected. If you want to change all the citations, you have to edit the output style.
(See more on output styles)
The options are available by right-clicking on a selected citation or by selecting the «Edit & Manage Citation(s)»
By right-clicking on a citation you can choose
|Default Format||Keep author names and years within parentheses|
|Display as: Author (Year)||Put author names outside the parentheses and year within|
|Exclude Author||Exclude author names in the citation|
|Exclude Year||Exclude year from citation|
|Show Only in Bibliography||Exclude the citation from the ongoing text, but include it in the reference list|
When you click on the «Edit & Manage Citation(s)» button, a dialog box appears:
The choices found by right-clicking are under «Formatting» (see illustration above).
Other options are:
|Prefix||Text to precede the regular citation (remember any spaces)|
|Suffix||Text to be left after the regular citation (remember any spaces)|
|Pages||Most output styles are not defined to show this. Instead, use the Suffix field|
|Edit Library Reference||Takes you to the EndNote library to edit the highlighted reference there|
|Find Reference Updates||Checking for an updated version of the reference available online
(See more on Find reference update)
|Remove Citation||Removes the citation from the text and the reference list (if it is not inserted elsewhere in the document)|
