"Cannot edit range" in X7 and X8

Hi All,

I'm getting the error message "Cannot edit range" when I try to cite ANY paper, in EVERY document.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled, gone from X7 to X8.

HELP!

 

Thanks,

Guy

Re: "Cannot edit range" in X7 and X8

Hi,

 

My answer may only apply to people with the developmental version of Mendeley. EndNote technical support just resolved this on my PC with Windows 7, Word 2013, and the developmental version of Mendeley (a version that is not distributed to the public except by signing up for it). The app add in was what seemed to be causing the conflict. In my version of Word the place to turn it off is Word File menu + Options + Add-Ins+ in the Manage list at the foot of the window go to Word Add-ins and unselect the Mendeley developmental add-in. I've had the Mendeley add-in for months and never saw this before, so it may just be with the most recent developmental version or versions.

 

Have a nice day
John

Good point.  This kind of conflict, one should check and report this and any other word add-ins that may conflict, to help sort it out.

Re: "Cannot edit range" in X7 and X8

This has just occured to me also today, despite working fine previously, no other changes made. Can still edit citations already in document but cannot add new ones in this document or a new one. Also tried removing formatting , copy into new doucment and reformatting.  Was in X7 and updated to x8.

 

Not using developmental Mendely.

 

 

Windows 10, Office 365.

Reading your post John (pls see post above from  sorted out a horrible error with EndNote ''Can't edit range''. I did exactly what John said and it sorted out the error immediately. The error of ''Can't edit range'' came up with my Endnote after I signed up and installed Mendeley. For whoever is experiencing the same problem just follow exactly what John said to remove Mendeley's Add-Ins from Word, Thanks so much John, very much appreciated indeed.

I had the same issue with the software and indeed unticking Mendeley in the Word add-ins solved it!

 

Thank you ever so much!!

It was amazing! I solved this by uninstalling the Mendeley's add-in as well.

 

But ... why is that? This is really weird...

Just change the style  in your word document. It should be consistent with the previous citation style. Once you change the style it will work and you can change the one you want from the style list.
