Replacing Endnote references

For many reasons, Endnote is a great tool. However, when it breaks, it can be a pain to go through a find all of the your references, so you can replace with something like Mendeley. I recently had to go through this process, and here is what I learned:
  1. To remove all hyperlinks in a Word document, press CTRL+A to select the entire document and then press CTRL+SHIFT+F9. 
  2. Then do a find replace using the following (source):
    • FIND: (\[)(*)(\])
    • REPLACE: \1\2\3
    • And if you format the response with 'Highlight', then you can easily find your new unlinked intext references!

  • First, press keyboard shortcuts “Alt+ F9”. You can see all hyperlinks turn into their “Link” parts now.
  • Press “Ctrl + H” to open the “Find and Replace” dialog box.
  • Click “Find”.
  • Then type “^d HYPERLINK” in “Find what” text box.
  • Next click “Reading Highlight”.
  • Choose “Highlight All”.
