Creating Your Custom List Of Output Styles

RefWorks has hundreds and hundreds of output styles to choose from for your bibliography and paper.  To help you easily navigate through the long list, we've created the Output Style Manager.

The Output Style Manager allows you to create an abbreviated, custom version of the RefWorks output style list.  This makes it easier for you to navigate and locate the styles you use most often.  You can establish your Favorites, which always display at the top of the output style drop-down in the Bibliography area, when using AccuCite while adding or editing references and when using Write-N-Cite.   

To use the Output Style Manager:

1. Select Output Style Manager from the Bibliography menu.  There is also a link to the Output Style Manager from the Print area, the Create Bibliography area and from the Quick Access bar.

2. The Output Style Manager will open.  

3. You first need to choose which list of styles to display in the Choose Output Style area.  By default all of the output styles available in RefWorks displays (the Show All option) in the left-hand column.   You can also choose Show Organization-Specific or Show User-Customized from the drop-down.  You can also search for a style using the Search box.

4.  After selecting the list of styles, you can "move" the ones you want into your Favorites list by selecting the style name in the left-hand column and clicking on the Add to Favorites icon rightarrow.jpg.  To view the style before moving it, select the style and click on the Preview Output Style button.

5.  You can remove a style from your Favorites by selecting the style and clicking on the Remove from Favorites icon leftarrow.jpg.  You can remove all styles in your Favorites by just clicking on the Remove All button.

6.  Close the Output Style Manager to return to your previous page.
