Endnote X8 removes text highlight with sync

Hi, I upgraded from endnote X7 to X8 and use a synchronized EnNote library on a Windows desktop PC and a MacBook.

 

While I'm highliting text in the attached PDF my EndNote synchronizes the library and removes the highlighting. This can get very frustrating!

 

Can I change preferences to fix is?

 

 

Regards

Martin

Re: Endnote X8 removes text highlight with sync

The only workaround I figured out is to switch off "Sync Automatically" in the sync preferences.

 

Means I have to sync manually.

I hope I solved the problem myself.

 

I checked the Sync Status. It never finished syncing and the status kept on "there are changes that need to be send".

 

So, I created a new EN library and synced it with my online library. Now, my library is synced and it does not sync while I'm highlighting the text.
