EndNote desktop 2010 bug – patches and fixes

Follow-up to EndNote desktop 2010 bug from EndNote Web

As a follow-up to a previous posting, software solutions to the problem importing data for the year 2010 into older versions of EndNote desktop (8 to X2) are available to download from the EndNote website.

Note that, as mentioned before, users of EndNote Web and the current version of EndNote desktop (X3) were unaffected by this problem, and so need take no action.

EndNote desktop 2010 bug

It is possible some of you may have moved from EndNote Web to using the desktop version of EndNote (now in version x3), or indeed be using both the Web and desktop versions of the software, and moving your references between them. Should you be using the desktop version, IT Services report cases of older versions of EndNote (X2 to 8) encountering problems importing year data for items published in 2010 or later. When this occurs, the year may be added manually - see http://www.endnote.com/support/Faqs/Import/faq20.asp for further details.

Note that it is only the year data that fails - all other reference data is imported correctly. The good news is that these issues do not impact on EndNote Web (hurray!) or indeed the latest available version of EndNote desktop.

Unformat Citations

If you want to temporarily remove the full listing of references from your document to make your own text clearer, you can use the Unformat Citations option to turn the references into temporary citations.

Changing your references into temporary citations

  1. Click on the Unformat Citation(s) option (the curved arrow in a square)
  2. The references should now be displayed in the following format {author name, year} with no reference list at the end of the document.

Changing your references back to formatted citations

  1. Click on the Format Bibliography button (the one with 1. 2. 3. written on it)
  2. Choose the reference style you want to use (e.g. Harvard) and click OK.
  3. This will convert your references back to the standard display.
This will just affect the current document, not any document you use with EndNote Web.

Turning off formatted citations for all EndNote Web documents
  1. Click on the Format Bibliography icon in EndNote Web (the icon labelled 1. 2. 3.)
  2. Click on the Instant Formatting tab.

  1. Within EndNote Web, click on the Organize tab.
  2. Make sure Manage My Groups is selected.
  3. Click the Share Group button next to the one you want to share.
  4. On the next screen, in the large box at the top, type the email address(es) of the person or people you want to share the group with. Note: each email address should be on a new line.
  5. Click the Apply button.
  6. A message will confirm this Group has been shared. The next time they log into their EndNote Web account, thy will see the Group listed down the left hand side of the screen and be able to view all the references in it.
