Write-N-Cite is a utility that allows you to run an abbreviated version of RefWorks in Word.  Many of our patrons use Write-N-Cite to properly format citations, footnotes, and bibliographies.  The latest version of Write-N-Cite (4) is now compatible with locally installed versions of Word 2013 and contains the following fixes to previous versions:

  • Users were unable to continue writing papers after disconnecting from internet access
  • OpenURL links not showing both in-text or within a bibliography
  • Users received an “Unable to Connect” error when multiple proxies are deployed at an institution
  • In some instances, the auto-sync folder feature was not syncing correctly
  • Converting formatted papers with output styles that had superscripted in-text citations to styles that do not contain superscript no longer incorrectly retain superscripted in-text citations
  • Incompletely defined output styles and output styles defined with numeric citations without citation ranges no longer produces the error “Object reference is not set to an instance of an object”
  • Miscellaneous spacing issues when stylized text is defined in a style
