Re: New user, last one for today, how to reorder items with same date

Here's a pic: Screen Shot 2019-09-07 at 8.37.30 AM.png The two articles from 1958 should be in reverse order to be entered correctly in chronological order. Another example has several problems in the sort: Screen Shot 2019-09-07 at 8.41.04 AM.png I have hit the sort by date and author buttons that ...

New user, last one for today, how to reorder items with same date

Apologies for so many posts today, it is still difficult to find what I need in the manual. I have two book chapters. Everything scans fine, with one problem. The chapters are listed in the main reference file out of order, and that is how they scan in the citations and bibliography. Perhaps I enter...

Re: New user: how to have citation display a, b, etc after year

Ah, I see. All good. I'd scanned a sample document that didn't have both references. Thanks again very much.

New user: how to have citation display a, b, etc after year

My bibliography has multiple entries for an author in a single year. These references include journal articles and books. I'm able to generate the reference list to display, for example, an article as 1962a, and a book as 1962b. However, I am not yet seeing how to have an in text citation indicate t...

New user: how to add page numbers in text citations

I've tried searching a bit for this but couldn't find it.

I often need citations in the text with the format, "... (Jones, 2019, pp. 6-8)". The format manager for citations looks like it has options to add page numbers but if that's what it is I don't understand how to use it.

Thanks in advance.

Difference between Word and Mellel reference lists

What are the significant differences between how Word and Mellel generate reference lists? I am writing an academic book in Scrivener, and trying to decide if it would be worth using Mellel instead of Word to generate the manuscript. The publisher requires a Word document, so using Mellel would requ...

How to cite a volume in a series of books

Hi ... thanks in advance for help, I find it difficult to locate answers to my questions in the comprehensive manual and forum. I have a "Complete Works" series of books for which I'd like to have one reference. That means I'd like to use either the "Copy citation and modifiers", or another method, ...

Re: How to import a .refer file (new user)

I'm new to reference management ... so I don't have EndNote. If this might be helpful, here's what's on the PEP site: "This option, for PEP Subscribers only, lets you download an EndNote importable version of the bibliographic information for articles and books on PEP-Web.

How to import a .refer file (new user)

I use an online reference database called PEP (Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing) for research. It has more than 100K entries. I use Mac OS. They make the database available as a downloadable EndNotes .refer file, which is UT 8 (I think ... it's the international format). They also do not offer s...
