How can we improve RefWorks?

don't automatically add a bibliography!

I use google docs to write my papers and find it really annoying that RefWorks automatically adds a bibliography entry when I'm adding a reference. Footnotes are included in my institution's word count, but the bibliography is not, so when the bib is automatically added it disrupts my word count and makes it harder to quickly see where I'm up to. Is there any way I can turn this feature off and then just install the bibliography when I've finished the paper? thanks!

We will be releasing a new version of RCM later this year, which among other things will include a bibliography toggle switch.
For Google Docs this option may be added later. Until then you can use the suggestion provided here about highlighting the relevant text.

    You can just highlight the text of your paper you know, and then do a word count. It will then perform a word count for only that highlighted portion and not the entirety of it including the bib. Pretty easy solution.

    Currently when you insert citations using RCM in Word the screen automatically jumps down to the end of the document, where it inserts the reference for the bibliography. If you have a long document, particularly one where you may be going back and editing earlier sections, this gets very annoying very quickly as you then have to scroll back up to where you were in the document. I've had two users complain to me about this in the last couple of weeks. Is it possible for this to not happen or for users to have the option of adding the bibliography at the end of the writing process, like it is currently in WNC?
