Note: this instruction is relevant to EndNote's Chicago 16th Footnote output style. EndNote has not yet* published the Chicago 17th Footnote output style, which would incorporate these settings in keeping with the recommended use of the short form footnote. See the links below for more information.

Making this change to the Chicago output style in EndNote will entail creating a "new" style.

Choose Edit > Output Styles > Edit Chicago 16th Footnote

Under the Footnotes heading, follow the changes outlined below:

  1. Repeated citations subheading: select Use the short form and No special handling.

Chicago short form - footnotes repeated citations


  1. Templates subheading: uncheck When using the short form, include title field only to disambiguate.

Chicago short form - footnotes templates

  1. Author Lists subheading: to make the Author name to appear, under Subsequent works by the same author, choose Print the author list as defined above:

Chicago short form - footnotes author lists

Save the changes to a "new" style (eg Chicago 16th Footnote Short Form) and close the window. Remember to use the new style name in the document.
