download my references from endnote web with groups

Hi Endnote,

    I am using Endnote X4 and Endnote web 3.5 on 64 bits Windows 7.  I save my references on Endnote web, organized them with hundreds of groups.  Now I am trying to download all the references from my Endnote web.  I find there are only 2 options:

the first is  in endnote web => format => in the reference menu choose “all references in my library” => then download the library and import it to local endnote.  However, doing this will lose all the “groups” info.  

The second way is time consuming : in endnote web => format => in the reference menu choose each “reference group” and download each by each.  

May I know if there is any  way that I can download all my references in once while organized with my groups setting? Thank you.


This is only possible with the new Sync feature in EndNote X6. You can still manually create each group in EndNote X4 then transfer between the EndNote Web group and EndNote Desktop’s groups but there is no one shot process in X5 or earlier.
