FAQ: Why does EndNote's output from my database appear in an unwanted mixture of fonts?

FAQ V18

This happens because although EndNote's base fonts are set in the preferences it is also possible to set a different font within an individual reference. Sometimes this is what is wanted (e.g. to add some Greek characters within a reference), but mostly it is a mistake. Once a font is set like this it persists even if the base font is reset. In addition, if a font change is incorporated in a field which is stored for re-use by the Term Lists (e.g. a journal title) the font-change will re-appear every time EndNote uses that field as a typing short-cut.

To stop this from happening you should correct the records where the font is explicitly set. Also delete the term lists containing the stored short-cuts and regenerate them from the corrected records.

The Computing Service runs a course on basic use of EndNote each term (see Endnote for Bibliographies courses). If you need further help, or if you can't attend the course and would like a copy of the course workbook, email
