Adding a Record for a Figure

To see instructions for adding figures and tables to your EndNote library, see the appropriate page under Creating Your Library.

Inserting a Figure or Table into Your Document

  • In Microsoft Word, place your cursor where you want the figure or chart to be placed and click in the EndNote ribbon.
  • Click the down arrow next to Insert Citation.
  • Choose Insert Figure from the list of options.
  • Search for a word in the author, title, year, or caption of the record in EndNote.
  • Click on the appropriate record and click Insert.

NOTE - You can't edit the caption of an image once it is inserted in your document so make sure you have what you want in your EndNote record before you insert the figure.
