Re: Endnote X8 slowness problem ("lagging")

Same issue here - I don't have any PDFs attached, because I never trusted Endnote to perform as well with attachements than without. But still it laggs horribly!

 

Cleaning up the Term Lists had no effect.

 

Additionaly, I have noticed two minor issues that may be connected to the slowness problem:

- Almost everytime I start Endnote, an error message appears, saying: "This library is currently being used by someone else.  Try opening it again later". When hitting the OK button, the application starts nevertheless.

- References marked as read appear as unread when opening Endnote an other time

Re: Endnote X8 slowness problem ("lagging")

macOS 10.13.2. Endnote X8 latest update. Only 608 entries, no pdf etc. Permanent lagging even when only clicking on an entry.

Re: Endnote X8 slowness problem ("lagging")

Just seen that the first post is months old and apparently there has been done nothing. Is there a way to get the money back since they sold a broken program without being able to fix it?

Re: Endnote X8 slowness problem ("lagging")

mac os 10.10.5, Endnote X8, exactly the same problem with a new library containing just one entry. I get the spinning rainbow wheel just by clicking on the one entry I have. Are there any fixes yet for this problem?
