Are the childish "ratings" still present in EndNote 7

I was wondering if it’s possible to remove the childish “ratings” from view in EndNote 7? Also, is the read/not read “feature” now optional? Both of these useless features were added in EndNote 6 and are extremely annoying. I’m not inclined to spend more money to upgrade if they are not optional in the new version. Thanks.

Hello jlamarca,

EndNote X7 has the ability to hide the Ratings field in the library window and to turn off the bold style for unread references. You can see this and other new features in the “What’s New in EndNote X7” video on YouTube (

That’s great! I’ll consider upgrading then. The ratings and “read/unread” “features” have been extremely annoying. Thanks.
