I am also waiting for an Endnote for Mac update. I am keen to use Endnote with the new Word
Me too!! Please an update!
Any chance of getting news?
So this is what that link says.
Welcome to the new and modern Office for Mac! You will receive regular updates automatically until the official release in the second half of 2015.
So it hasn’t been released yet???
At this time, we are actively testing EndNote with the new Word for Mac 2016 Preview. Microsoft does not currently support third party add-ons in the Office 2016 Preview. Because of that, the EndNote tools will not load. As Microsoft indicates under “What else should we know about the Preview?” here:
“Some features aren’t final or may not work. We recommend that you always download and run the latest update so that you are using the most up to date features.”
Thanks for the replay and the clarification. Hope having the final version soon, in the mean time Endnote works with MS Word 2011 fine
Ha, ha, ha! We seem to be in a vortex of the Universe in which what has been released has not ben released and what is non-existant is present.
Twilight Zone much?
Is Beta 2 (came out yesterday) now allowing to load add-ons?
Are the new versions of Word 2016 for Mac compatible with add-ons?
I would also like to know whether these newest versions can be used in some fashion with Endnote.
Please advise if there is a way to beta test Endnote with these new versions of Word.
Just as a heads up. I upgraded office 2013 to the 20165 preview for PC 64bit and my endnote x7.3 is working fine with it in word anyway.
No such luck with Word for Mac. We’re still waiting. I run windows on parallels and have updated Office 2013 to 2016, as well. Endnote works fine.
OK, I’ve been using the Word 2016 beta but falling back to 2011 for changes to the bibliography. Today, I installed the first full-fledged production version , so I’m hoping that EndNote will soon release an update that supports it.
In fact, I like Word 2016 much better than 2011 for several reasons, but the integration of what used to be the Document Connection is probably one of its nicest features. So, with a new, Word 2016 compatible version of EndNote (preferably one that also permits use of custom bibliographic formats with the web database) would be very exciting.
(Actually, the way better screen management is in strong competition for my favorite new feature in Word 2016. It would be very nice if the new version of Endnote also addressed this issue and stopped spawning additional windows so often.)
I always wonder why Endnote lags significantly behind major word processing software releases/changes. I swear just about the time all the changes in Endnote and WP gets worked out, 1 of the 2 or both change. A remedy for Word for Mac 2016 CWYW would be appreciated.
Since official Word 2016 is out I think is time to release the update that works with it.
So Jason - now that it is offically out, what is the timeline for the beta from Thomson? I’ve been using alternatives for months with the beta of Word, and would like to get back to using Endnote. Thanks!
Yes, it would indeed be highly appreciated if I could use Endnote in combination with the new Office 2016 for Mac soon (and get finally rid of the outdated Office 2011). Any hint on the timeline for introducing a respective plugin would be great. Thanks in advance!
Office 2016 for mac is finally out - when will you be able to provide the endnote add-ons?
I wrote to them, got prompt answer- very corporate style not very promising-
"Thank you for contacting Thomson Reuters Technical Support.
I am sorry you are facing this issue.
I regret to inform you that currently, no version of EndNote is compatible to work with Word 2016, as they were developed before the release of Word 2016. We have informed our development team about this and they are working on the issue. However, we as Technical Support do not have an estimated time frame on when EndNote would be made compatible with Word 2016. Nonetheless, should I receive any information on this, I shall let you know.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
