EndNote X7

Insert images

To insert an image stored in EndNote into a Word document:

  1. Place your insertion point in the part of the document where you wish to insert an image
  2. Select Find Figure under the Insert Citation drop-down on the EndNote tab and enter a search term (this should be a word from the required image's caption, a title, author or keyword of the reference the image is attached to in your EndNote library)
  3. Select Find. This will search your EndNote library for images attached to records.

    (Mac: use Find Figure(s) from the CWYW drop-down on the floating EndNote toolbar in Word for Mac)
  4. Once you have located your required image select Insert.

When you insert images into a Word document using EndNote they are listed in the document as Figures. EndNote automatically generates a Table of Figures from these. 

If you use the Reference Type Chart or Table, objects will be listed as Tables in Microsoft Office Word.

Refer also to Attach Images under Manage records.
