  1. Add "one line one cite" feature. Gives people ability to insert in-text citations in programs other than Word or Google Docs.

    Our campus is using Microsoft Office 365. The "one line one cite" feature that was available in the Legacy version gives the option of being able to insert citations/create bibliographies in other writing software.

    Thank you for your feedback. We don't see this feature being included in the product roadmap at this time, since it isn't aligned with currently most requested functionalities and feature requests.

  2. LibreOffice integration via a plugin (like Write-n-Cite with Word)

    Although RefWorks supports exporting bibliographies in ODF format, it's missing the integration with LibreOffice. Other reference management tools do provide this, so it would be useful if RefWorks did as well. Thank you!

  4. Add Menu for Language Setting on WnC

    We can set the language by ourselves when we login to WnC with Legacy RefWorks account, but we cannot when we login to New version's account. Please add menu to set the language even when we login to WnC with New RefWorks accounts! This request is for users who also uses non-English languages in the world, but I think it is needed.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback. Microsoft Office add-ins are web-based. These are always hosted on the provider's web server and are not cached for offline use. The system used by add-ins requires a connection to the provider's web server which verifies the user's license. Add-in manifests are not available for local download and installation.

  8. Bibliography order of citations with same author and year

    When creating a bibliography in Word using Write 'n Cite, RefWorks automatically bases the order of citations on the author, then the title. However, when using two different citations with the same author and year, I want the order of those citations to be the same order I used them in the text.
    Now I have 'author(2021b)' first in my text, then 'author(2021a)' because it's sorted like that in the bibliography.

  10. Chicago 17th Author-Date style

    Please make the style for Chicago 17th correct in all respects. I have found errors in the citation of journal articles and a chapter in an edited collection. There may be other errors. Strangely, the errors occur in newly entered references, not in references imported from legacy refworks. Also, any editing of an imported reference cause the citation to become incorrect.

  17. Write-N-Cite - overview of new / old versions

    It would be great to have a page where not only the latest version of WnC will be downloable, but also an overview of previous versions and known issues connected with these versions.
    Because Proquest rather does not inform about found bugs, I am quite often not sure if it is absolutely necessary to download the latest version or not. We would also be able to better respond to queries from RW end-users who report non-standard RefWorks behavior.

  18. Cite web pages correctly in Write-n-cite using Chicago 17th

    Here is what Refworks provides:
    Cree Trappers Association. "Eeyou Indoh-Hoh Weeshou-Wehwun/Traditional Eeyou Hunting Law." Eastmain: Cree Trappers Association., accessed December 10, 2018, http://creetrappers.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/02
    /CTAEEYOUHUNTING_LAW.PDF.

    Here is what write-n-cite provides:
    Cree Trappers Association. 2009. Eeyou Indoh-Hoh Weeshou-Wehwun/Traditional Eeyou Hunting Law.

    I am providing a word document because the comment box omits formatting such as italics.

  19. WNC "formatting document" glitch

    When using WNC, it is possible to get a glitch, which causes MS Word to freeze to "formatting document" when adding or removing references into the text. This is most likely due to existing "broken" references in the text. I managed to fix this by completely removing the citation and parts of the text surrounding it. Removing only the visibly broken citation in the text and saving caused the problem to reoccur. Problem is discussed here:

  20. Cut and paste references in google docs

    It would be great if it was possible to cut and paste in google docs without the references in the text you cut out disappears, or aren’t recognized as references when they are pasted into the text again.
    They don’t do this immediately but when you update the document or change your citation style.
