I've just migrated to Endnot X8 on a Mac, and now I'm trying to sync my desktop account library to the online webversion. Everytime I enable synching, the library path that gets filled in under preferences is to a library that is no longer used, on a disk that doesn't even exist anymore. How can I edit this field so that it uses my current desktop library as the active sync file.
I can't find where the preferences file for Endnote X8 is stored on macOS Sierra, 10.12.1. Does anyone know how I can edit the line in preferences following: "Sync this Endnote Library," to make it the new library of choice?
Thanks in Advance,

I don't know about the Mac, but under Windows, it is fairly easy to change that..
- Close EndNote
- Open RegEdit.exe
- Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ISI ResearchSoft\EndNote\Preferences
- Edit string key "SyncLibraryPath"

This gave me the clue that I needed. For some reason I did not have a string key called "SyncLibraryPath" so I followed the directions to the right place in Regedit then
- right-clicked on "Preferences" and added a "new multi-string value" called "SyncLibraryPath"
- I added the value of the full path to my EndNote Library ending in .enl
This seemed to work.

On Mac, the preferences saved in path ~/Library/Preferences/com.ThomsonResearchSoft.EndNote.plist
you can edit it by Xcode and change the Value of 'SyncLibraryPath'

If you synchronize a different library or a library from a different location, the information in the preferences of EndNote will become automatically updated. If you need to change to a completely different library that you are synchronizing and you do not wish to merge any existing information, Technical Support can supply you with a special set of instructions. This will reset synchronization based on a different desktop library. Please contact Technical Support if you need to reset your synchronization based on another library:
