Be aware that inserting in-text citations and creating a bibliography/reference list is performed as two separate functions
Make sure you select the required style from the Output Style menu before you commence inserting citations/references. If you change the style the formatting will not update for any existing citations/references you have previously inserted into PowerPoint
After citations and references are entered into PowerPoint they will no longer be linked to your EndNote Library. If you edit a reference in your EndNote library it will not update in PowerPoint. Citations/references are imported as text only and can be edited as normal text
Mac users: Using EndNote with PowerPoint is currently unavailable for Macs.
Inserting in-text citations into a PowerPoint slide
Select the EndNote X8 tab in PowerPoint. Place the cursor in the text box in the PowerPoint slide where you want the in-text citation to appear.
Click on the Insert Citation icon and search by the author name using the Find command
Highlight the required reference and select Insert. Your in-text citation will now appear in your slide OR
Firstly select the required citation(s) in EndNote then in PowerPoint make sure you have the cursor in the required position in the slide
Next select the Insert Selected Citation(s) icon and your in-text citation/s will appear in your slide
Creating a reference list or bibliography
Place the cursor in the text box in the PowerPoint slide where you want the reference list to appear
In EndNote select all the references you want to appear in your reference list. You can do this by holding down the control key
Click on the Insert Selected Reference(s) icon and all your references will appear in your slide
If you only have a single reference for your reference list click on the Insert Reference icon and use the Find option to locate the reference
Highlight, then click on Insert
You may need to adjust the formatting
Note: It is recommended that you include all the required references in your reference list at the same time as any added later will not file correctly. They will not be in alphabetical or number order and this will have to be corrected manually.
