The topic of reference managers seems to appear here from time to time...

I have a few more questions:

I'm using version 7.0.2 of papyrus -
	I would like to be able to use it to automatically scan a document, 
and create the reference list at the end. Does anyone use papyrus this way??

This version doesn't recognise Word for Windows version 2 docs, let alone
version 6. Does anyone know whether there are updated versions (or even
a windows versions available?

How does something like Endnote compare? What about Refs - it has a few 
limitations.

Any ideas, opinions appreciated
Cheers, Dave
