Imported styles not showing up in Insert a Bibliography and Citation Style

Oct 7, 2009 at 1:26 PM

Hello,

I have just come across BibWord and I must say that this is a wonderful for everyone related to Academia! Great work guys!

My Problem:
I am running OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard) with Office 2008.
I have just downloaded the styles.zip (BibWord styles), from the website, extracted it and copied the contents into /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Microsoft Word.app/Contents/Resources/Style/.

All styles show up correctly in the Citation Manager (see http://yfrog.com/78screenshot20091007at7ocp)

However when I click on Insert -> Document Elements -> Bibliography none of the newly imported styles appear in the list of availble Bibliography styles (see http://yfrog.com/5escreenshot20091007at7ocp)

Am I missing a step to import the styles also for the Bibliography list / Works Cited? What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks for your help!

You're not missing anything. It is a bug in Word 2008 where the bibliography list seems to be hardcoded. Just pick the style from the citations box after you inserted the bibliography in another style. See http://bibword.codeplex.com/Wiki/View.aspx?title=Styles_FAQ#Q2

Keep in mind that if you are using Harvard Anglia (assuming from your screenshot) that you need the Extender tool for year suffices.
