Compiling a Bibliography
Creating a new citation: Click the Insert Citation button and choose
Add New Source. You see the Create Source dialog box shown in
Figure 8-9. Choose an option on the Type of Source drop-down list
and enter particulars about the source. You can click the Show All
Bibliography Fields check box to enlarge the dialog box and enter all
kinds of information about the source. Whether clicking the check
box is necessary depends on how detailed you want your bibliography
to be.
Inserting a citation placeholder: Click the Insert Citation button and
choose Add New Placeholder if you’re in a hurry and you don’t
currently have all the information you need to describe the source. The
Placeholder Name dialog box appears. Enter a placeholder name for
the source and click OK. Later, when you have the information for the
source, either click the citation in the text and choose Edit Source on its
drop-down list or click the Manage Sources button, and in the Source
Manager dialog box, select the placeholder name (it has a question mark
next to it) and click the Edit button. You see the Edit Source dialog box.
Enter the information and click OK.
Inserting a citation you’ve entered in another document: Click the
Manage Sources button. You see the Source Manager dialog box. In the
Master List, select the source you need and click the Copy button. Then
click Close and enter the citation by clicking the Insert Citation button
and choosing the name of the citation you copied.
Your citation appears in text in parentheses. Move the pointer over it
and you see an inline drop-down list that you can open to edit the citation
as it appears in-text as well as edit it in the bibliography, as shown in
Figure 8-10.
