Re: How does one change the sync library in Endnote X8?

I faced the same issue. I have changed the location of "My EndNote Library.enl" to Dropbox and it works when I use EndNote X8; however, my changes in EndNote X8 does not appear in Endnote Web even though I have pressed "Sync" button.

Re: How does one change the sync library in Endnote X8?

Highly recommend you DO NOT USE Dropbox for an SQL multi-file/folder database like Endnote, as it has to be saved in a specific order which can become corrupted easily.  Especially if it is open on more than one machine at a time, or not saved properly before disconnecting/closing endnote.  

 

next question is- on a PC or a Mac?

Re: How does one change the sync library in Endnote X8?

I experience the same problem. I have tried to delete the library, uninstall and reinstall endnote etc. All to no avail. I can't sync my library with ENDNOTE ONLINE any longer. Is there no simple way to change this? What am I missing here?

Re: How does one change the sync library in Endnote X8?

Hello, 

What happens if you are prevented from following the RedEdit.exe instructions to try to edit the SyncLibraryPath and don't have the ability to add a "new multi-string value" called SyncLibraryPath? Does anyone have any instructions they can provide i.e. to allow editing in RedEdit.exe while using a Windows 10 OS?

 

We had a student come to us with a Windows 10 operating system placed on a Lenovo Yoga. We found that the library (placed on the hard drive) was also automatically syncing to Outlook's One Drive. We unchecked the automatic sync option, but also tried our best to change the SyncLibraryPath using the two methods described above. We also tried changing her permissions so that we could edit in RedEdit.exe but to no avail. Any ideas? We also deleted her Outlook email address and password details under the headings "Edit" > "Preferences" > "Sync" > "EndNote Account Credentials"

 

Many thanks.
