With the exception of Word5.x, EndNotePlus (EN+) works in 2-apps mode
for many wordprocessors, that is, if you have got the version 2.0.

To be more specific, you have to launch EN+ and the wordprocessor at
the same time to enter the citations into your document.  This is what
I called 2-apps mode.  If you happen to be using Word 5.x, then there 
is an EN+PlugInModule which can be run inside word.  If you use that,
you do not have to, and you should not, launch EN+ when you are making
entries into the document.

After you finished entering citations, you should save the file and close
it.  Then you can use EN+ to "scan" it and "format" it.  You can always
"deformat" it and reformat it under a different style.

If you are using the Word Module, you can do the formatting while you
are still "in" Word (in the single-app mode).

The module for Word6.x is supposedly to be arriving soon according to
the Niles Ass., Inc.

We have used EN+ mostly in the Word module mode in the past.  Some work
is done in the 2-app mode with WordPerfect recently.

What do you mean a new version is coming out?  I thought the 2.0 is the 
new version.

If Claris Works (CW)is not supported, can you save document in 
MacWriteII (MW) format in CW?  If yes, there you go!  You can format
that file with EN+.

According to the manual, EN+ supports: Word3-5.1a, WP 1-3.0, MWII, FrameMaker
3-4.0 MIF format, RTF, Nisus 3.0-3.4, WriteNow 1.0-4.0, MWPro 1.0-1.5, MW5.0,
and PlainText.

Another idea is to use RTF (Rich Text Format), which I think CW should support.
Correct me if I am wrong.
