The use of Microsoft™ Word track changes with EndNote may corrupt your in-text citations & references
If you need to share a document with a colleague in order to obtain feedback, we recommend that you share a copy of the document, which has been converted to plain text. EndNote formatting cannot be restored once documents converted to plain text and suggested changes need to be manually transferred to the original EndNote formatted version.
Convert to Plain Text will strip hidden field codes from the document, leaving plain text that is no longer linked to records in your EndNote library. You should therefore first manually save a copy of the original EndNote formatted document, and then convert to plain text.
To remove field codes and save the formatted citations and bibliography as text:
The resulting plain text of your document will retain the original in-text citations and references and can the submitted to a publisher, or shared with a colleague or supervisor with no risk of them corrupting your EndNote formatted version.
