Saving and editing output styles

To save and edit EndNote styles outside a University cluster, you need to download the style and save it to your computer. The process for this is different depending on the permissions you have.

Using your own copy of EndNote (on a laptop, or other computer to which you have administrator rights)

Download the style and save it to the folder that contains all of EndNote's other output styles. This is likely to be on your C drive, under Program Files> EndNote X6> Styles.

It should now be an option when you reformat your bibliography.

Using EndNote via Desktop Anywhere, or on a computer to which you do not have administrator rights

  1. Create a new folder on your computer where you do have permissions to save. Call the new folder Styles
  2. Download the style and save it to your new Styles folder
  3. Open EndNote and on the menu bar choose Edit, then Preferences
  4. In the new window, click on Folder locations
  5. A box called Style folder will appear. Make a note of where the existing styles are held in case you ever want to revert to this location
  6. Next to the Style folder box, click on the Select folder button. Navigate to and select the Styles folder you created earlier. Click OK
  7. When you ask EndNote to format the bibliography in your Word document, this style should now appear as an option.

Editing output styles

If none of EndNote's styles exactly match the one you want to use, there are instructions for editing an output style in the Bibliographic styles chapter of the EndNote manual (PDF) (this is a very large file and may take some time to download).
