In a previous post we covered how to import full text PDFs into your EndNote library. Having the PDFs attached to your library makes it easier to quickly locate and read the text.
Did you know that you can make annotations on these PDFs? This simple-to-use feature is another way you can use EndNote to make it easier to organize and use your research.
• Select the PDF from the tabs along the right-hand side of the page and click on the Open PDF button.
• From the PDF viewing screen, you can select some basic annotation tools (highlight, underline, sticky note, and strike out).
• Using the sticky note option adds a small icon to the text. You can click on this to open a small window where you can write and view notes.
• You can also use the Find… field to locate and highlight a specific word or phrase within the PDF; use the Find Previous and Find Next to scroll the multiple instances of the desired word or phrase.
• You can save your annotations by clicking on the Save icon on the left-hand side of the toolbar directly above the PDF.
• You can also print out the PDF and any added annotations by clicking on the Print icon.
EndNote is a citation management tool that can help you organize your research and save valuable time creating your in-text citations and bibliographies.
