Macs, Word 2008 and Cite While You Write

If you are using a Mac with Word 2008 installed, you will find you are unable to use the Cite While You Write as it is not currently compatible. This is a known issue and Adept Science are working on an update.

In the meantime, if you have a document which you have already contains EndNote Web references and you want to format it, you can do so using the following instructions:

  1. Open your document in Word 2004 or X
  2. In the Cite While You Write toolbar, click the Unformat Citations icon (the one with a red curved arrow pointing downwards).
  3. Save the document as an RTF file (not as a .doc or docx file).
  4. Log in to EndNote Web and click on the Format tab.
  5. Click on Format Paper.
  6. Click the Browse button and find and select the file you have just saved.
  7. Select the required referencing style from the list (e.g. Harvard).
  8. Click Format.  After a short delay, you will be given the option to open or save the new file.

Note: if you are working with a document and need to add references to it, you can do this by entering them in the following format:

{author name, year} e.g. {Speight, 2008}

To format the bibliography, you can then follow steps 3-8 above.

My EndNote Web toolbar is not responding

A few people have reported a problem where their EndNote Web toolbar is not working. Clicking on a button does not produce an error message, but nothing happens.  This may be due to other programs (or add-ins) installed in Word which stop the toolbar from working properly.

If this happens, close Word, open up Windows Explorer and go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Startup and delete any add-ins which might be causing a problem. Add-ins known to cause a conflict include the following:

  • SnagIt
  • Copernic Agent
  • Adobe/Macromedia FlashPaper
  • Adobe Contribute C3
  • ScanSoft/Nuance PaperPort or PDF Create!
  • MSWordXML
  • EZPhoto
  • Workshare
