Before copying the cite keys from either EndNote or Bookends, the markup in Ulysses needs to be changed. The cite keys copied from the reference managers look something like this:
Creating your own markup, however, can only be done in Ulysses for Mac. In case you own a Mac, you can customize the markup yourself as follows:
Your custom markup will of course sync to your iPad and iPhone. To use it, however, you’ll need to switch the markup for every sheet where you’d like to insert citations. Here is how to do that:
On Mac, go to Edit (in the menu bar) › “Convert Markup”. Now, select the Markup you just created.
On iPhone or iPad, open Ulysses' Editor Settings via the circled ellipsis in the editor and tap Markup.
Now, you can start inserting references into your texts.
Once you’ve finished your manuscript in Ulysses, you can export it as a DOCX file.
Open the file in Microsoft Word for Mac in order to format your in-text citations and to add a bibliography at the end.
