Re: Endnote X4/X5 and Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion?

I had the same problems working on my dissertation when there were just so many citations. I tried a few things to get it to stop and finally did, but can't remember how I did it for sure. On the General tab of the Endnote CWYW Preferences window (found in the Word - - Tools - - EndNote menu) there is a box for "Enable instant formatting on new Word documents." I have that turned off now, so that might be it, but I don't think so. The next line below that box to "Turn off Word's "Show Field codes instead of their values" also might be it, but that doesn't ring a bell, either.

 

I believe the correct command you want to use is under the Word--Tools--Endnote menu, then select "Bibliography Settings." On the "Instant Formatting" tab of this window, you want to turn instant formatting off by hitting the Turn Off button. This prevents your paper from updating every citation every time you enter a new one or rechecking every citation every time you add a new one or every 90 seconds (the default). 

 

Those are the only things I can think of. You might be better off looking for a thread that matches your question better, though, or starting a new one. This thread is not anywhere related to this topic, so nobody else might even think to respond to it here.

Re: Endnote X4/X5 and Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion?

I am having this problem as well but my copy of Endnote X5 is running from the correct folder (Applications/Endnote X5).  I am running Mountain Lion.  Any advice on this?

Re: Endnote X4/X5 and Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion?

My problem seems to be slightly different.  I am using X4 with Pages.  It was working fine, but I only use "Insert Endnote Citation."  After upgrading to Mountain Lion, I can enter new references in Endnote, but I can no longer use the Insert Endnote Citation feature.  It just doesn't work.  It doesn't add the in text citation or add to the Bibliography either one.  Nothing.  At least it's not crashing.  I read through the other comments and made sure Endnote was under applications.

 

Much appreciated.

Pam, I'm not having any trouble with Endnote X5 and Pages working together in Mountain Lion. The Insert EndNote Citation command is working fine and it creates the bibliography entry just as it did in Lion, so it all seems to be working the same. So I'm not having any trouble with Pages or with Word so far - knock wood!

Re: Endnote X4/X5 and Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion?

Thank you, Henry. I'm using X5, word 2008, and have lost CWYW, though I had it initially. Do you think the same processes will work in my case? I tried an unistall and re-install and that did nothing.

 

Also, when I open customizer, CWYW is not checked. I check, proceed and nothing changes. 

 

TIA,

Re: Endnote X4/X5 and Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion?

[ Edited ]

I haven't seen that anyone is having the same problem I am. I have a new MacBook Air, Mac OS 10.8.2 and MS Word 2011.

 

Whenever I try to insert a citation a separate window pops up to say "Formatting bibliography..." The progress bar goes about 1/4 of the way and just sits there. The citation remains in temporary format (with brackets {xxxxx} ) around it, and I can't do anything in Word until I hit cancel. My bibliography is not formatted and the citation just remains in the temporary format.

 

Please please any help is greatly appreciated!

 

**Update**

The Cite While You Write option in customizer does not remain enabled even when I check the box. I enable CWYW through customizer, hit next etc. and close out. But once I go back into customizer the CWYW option is disabled (box is not checked). Any ideas on how to fix this?

Re: Endnote X4/X5 and Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion?

First make sure that Word has at least Service Pack 1. In Word click on Word > About Word. The version must be 12.10 or higher before Word 2008 can load any commands. If the version 12.0.0 or 12.0.1 you can find the Office 2008 updates at http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads.

Second make sure that Word knows where to look for its startup items. In Word click on Word > Preferences > File Locations > Startup. Click on “Modify” and set the location of Startup to /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Startup/Word. Click on OK to save and close the preferences and quit Word.

Finally make sure that the Cite While You Write bundle file is in place. In the Finder open the hard drive and go to /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Office/Startup/Word. Check to see if there is a file called “EndNote CWYW Word 2008.bundle.” If the bundle is in place you can open Word and check for the EndNote commands. If the bundle file is not in the Word folder you should be able to find a copy of “EndNote CWYW Word 2008.bundle” in /Applications/EndNote X5/Cite While You Write. You can copy and paste the file into the Word folder.

Re: Endnote X4/X5 and Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion?

My problem is similar. Instant formatting is not working. When I select

 

Tools -> EndNote X5 --> Update Citations and Bibliography

 

Endnote displays a progress bar (Matching unformatted citations) that eventually fails stating "EndNote is not responding. Error = -1712"

 

I performed this test operation after closing both EndNote (15.0.0.7473) and Word version 14.2.4 (120824), then restarting word and inserting a single citation.

 

I am running a Late 2009 MBPro 17 w/8 Gb of RAM, under OSX 10.8.2

 

LIke all others, this is happening during a crippling deadline. I would appreciate a speedy response, of course.

Re: Endnote X4/X5 and Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion?

I have exactly the same problem since the upgrade to 10.8.2 with X5

It seems to be becuase EndNote is forgetting the CWYW preferences - tick this on in customizer, it says it has applied the changes but if you go back into customizer they are still switched off.

Seems to be a 10.8.2/EndNote clash

Anyone found a solution?
