Can't turn it off

I am trying to edit a manuscript written by a colleague who used Endnote. I am constantly interrupted by demands that I open the Endnote library (which I don’t have) and include or ignore every item enclosed in parentheses. How can I tell Endnote to bug off?

do you have endnote installed though?  If so, there should be an “disable” option on the endnote ribbon (or in the “format bibliography” dialog on the third tab on the Mac).  (In the word document).
