With Cite While You Write (CWYW), EndNote users can insert references from their library directly into a document as in-text citations. References will also automatically appear in a bibliography at the end of the document. Using EndNote's Cite While You Write function can save users hours of formatting and editing their citations and bibliography.
EndNote Online users with COM-issued Windows computers will need to download the Cite While You Write application from the Software Center.
Once you have finished writing your paper, we strongly advise you to save a version of your paper as a .docx file and save a separate version as a .rtf file.
The .rtf file type "disengages" EndNote so that there will not be any formatting issues when submitting your paper to Canvas or any other upload sites. Unfortunately, disengaging EndNote means that any citation edits or additions made in your .rtf file will NOT auto-update in the bibliography.
Saving a .docx file version of your paper keeps EndNote "engaged" and allows you to make further citation edits, or additions to your paper, while still taking advantage of the bibliography auto-update feature from Cite While You Write.
