You can determine what you want to see on the main EndNote Library screen. Any field that EndNote includes can be shown including user-defined fields.
You can choose up to 10 fields to display per line.
Note that the more fields you choose, the more scrolling right and left you will need to do.
In some cases, you can choose what the column heading will say.
You can choose whether EndNote will display all author names or just the first author listed.
Possible fields include: Read/Unread Status; Author; Year; Title; Journal/Secondary Title; Date; Rating; Record Number; Reference Type; Secondary Author; Place Published; Publisher; Volume; Number of Volumes; Number; Pates; Section; Tertiary Author; Tertiary Title; Edition; Type of Work; Subsidiary Author; Short Title; Alternate Journal/Title; ISBN/ISSN; Original Publication; Reprint Edition; Reviewed Item; 8 Custom fields (these can be defined as you choose and can hold any type of information); Accession Number; Call Number; Label; Keywords; Abstract; Notes; URL; Author Address; Caption; Figure; DOI; File Attachments; Translated Author; Translated Title; Name of Database; Database Provider; Research Notes; Language; Access Date; Added to Library; Last Updated
There are five font sizes available in EndNote. This only effects how text is seen in EndNote itself - it does not change the font or size of text in documents when a citation is inserted.
EndNote can prevent adding duplicate records to your library if you want it to.
You can define what fields EndNote compares to identify duplicates.
By default, EndNote compares Author, Year, Title, and Short Title
Other fields include Secondary Title (Journal); Volume; Issue; Pages; Section; DOI; Custom 2 (this is a user defined field); Publisher; Place Published; Tertiary Title; Subsidiary Author; Reference Type; Label
You can have EndNote look for exact matches or ignore spacing and punctuation.
EndNote can automatically discard duplicates.
Note - Different databases index authors differently so matching authors may result in some duplicates not being identified. Be aware of whether a database is using full author names or just initials.
Note - Different databases index journal titles differently. This is not one of the default fields because some databases use abbreviations which may differ for the same title between databases and some databases use the journal title in full. This can result in many unidentified duplicates.
Temporary citations are used in programs other than Microsoft Word. The program will insert a temporary citation until you choose to format your document when the temporary citations will be formatted and inserted.
