How can we improve RefWorks?

Improve print/electronic differentiation in imported book references

The default setting for book imports is for electronic books and it is, in my experience, not apparent to users until an inaccurate bibliography is created.

Perhaps you could:
A) Change the default from electronic to print
B) Bring the 'this is an electronic resource' tick-box to the top of the screen when a user imports a book record.

    The ability to select groups of references and change from electronic to print would be extremely useful. Currently, it needs to be done one at a time which is onerous (requires 4 mouse-clicks per record) and does not give a good impression of the product. The global edit change is possible in Legacy (Add - Source Type). Referencing styles often allow a print format to be used even though material is accessed electronically which is driving demand for this feature.

    The ability to change the default for all source types between print and electronic was a very useful feature of Legacy. Being able to choose a default for a specific source type would be even better.
