Changing Citation Styles

It's easy to change your document to a different citation style. From the Zotero tools menu in Word, select the button or menu item for Document Preferences or Set Doc Preferences. This will bring up the Document Preferences window. Select the citation style you'd like from the list, then click OK. 

Note: if you're changing between an in-text style (e.g., APA or MLA) to a footnotes style (e.g. Chicago), you will need to ensure that your ending punctuation is correct with respect to its placement around the citation. Zotero will not modify this.
