EndNote for PC

A comprehensive guide to the reference management software EndNote.

Edit multiple references

With EndNote you can edit multiple references at the same time. For example, you might want to add information to the notes or keywords fields of several references.

For example, to choose five references and add some text to the Research Notes field in each one:

  • Highlight the first reference, hold down the <Ctrl> key and select the remaining four references
  • Select References > Show Selected References
  • Select Tools > Change/Move/Copy Fields
  • Select Change Fields and then Research Notes from the dropdown list
  • Check Insert after field’s text: and enter your note in the box on the right
  • Click OK to confirm the changes

Note: Be careful using Replance whole field with. Using this option will delete any existing notes in the Research Notes field in all selected references.
