Showing formatted reference with entry

It would be helpful to have a fully formatted reference shown with each entry that corresponds to the chosen format. I often just want to copy and paste it into a google slides presentation. Currently, I have to create a citation in a new google doc and format bibliography, then copy and paste that. thanks

Just do Ctrl-c or use the Copy menu:

I did not know that! thanks!

You are not the first one missing it. I wonder why this is. Perhaps we should change the labels of the button or menu.

You might change the label to Copy > “formatted citation” to make it clearer what this does? Not sure if that would help or not, but the word “citation” alone seems to lack a certain something (even though it makes sense when you think about it).
