Bibliography Numbering macOS Word

I'm getting unexpected formatting results when creating bibliographies.

Here are the steps I follow to create the citations:

1. Select several citations and then right click and select the "Generate Bibliography from Items..."
2. Options as follows: Output Mode = Bibliography and Output Method = Copy to clipboard.

When I paste the results into Word, I get the citations formatted as expected but the numbering is off. Each number is far right justified, and the citation is on the next line.

It looks something like this:

Jones, JR. Important Paper. JAMA. 2021
Smith, BV. Really Important Paper. NEJM. 2020

Any thoughts on what is going on?


Take care,
  • Yeah, this is known. Word's interpretation of html on the clipboard is wonky. You'll either need to use the Word add,-on or save the bibliography to .RTF and open in Word
