EndNote and Word are connected, and EndNote will automatically fix, scan, and update your citations.
If you want to break the link between EndNote and Word, you can do that. This will turn all of your citations in Word into plain-text. This will stop any of your citations from being updated by EndNote.
Always save a copy of your document with the EndNote connection intact. It is not possible to undo this step. To break the connection with EndNote and remove the EndNote coding, click “Convert Citations and Bibliography” and “Convert to Plain Text.”
