Add buttons to toolbar

It would be great if the toolbar button in Endnote X8 was editable, like the buttons in Word. There are some functions (like open attached document) that I refer to very frequently - one-click access would be a great improvement. I'm sure other users would choose other features to add to the toolbar. It should be fully editable.

Like Ctrl+Alt+P to open the attachment?

Yes, it would be nice to have the "Save" button on the toolbar so I don't have to click File, Save every time I edit a reference.

Yes, that's exactly what I'd like, too.

Re: Add buttons to toolbar

Edit a reference, how?  In endnote it is automatically saved, when you edit a record and close it. You can do a ctrl+S to be sure, but it is not required.  You can also close the record with ctrl+W and it will save it before closing the record window.  Even if you edit it from the reference panel on the side/bottom (whereever you have defined in the layout tab) is automatically saves it.  

 

The only thing you do need to do - if you change it in error, and want to undo a change, before you close it, you do need to File>revert reference (no keyboard shortcut or on toolbar).

Re: Add buttons to toolbar

There is a button in X8 to open the attachment. It looks like a folder and is next to the open link button.
