I am using Endnote X1, Windows XP SP3, and Word 2003 (SP3). When I install Endnote, it does strange things to Word:
If Endnote is installed, and I start Word (even if Endnote is not running), and push and hold one of the cursor keys (e.g. to move the cursor through some text), the cursor moves very slowly, and as the cursor moves through each character, the mouse cursor changes from the usual cursor to the hourglass. Word’s CPU usage rockets up to 100%.
If I start Endnote, open a library, and then close the library, I can use the cursor keys in Word without any problems.
If I open a library and highlight a reference then the problem returns. Sometimes if I click on Edit / Output styles and change the style, the problem stops, sometimes permanently, sometimes temporarily.
I have switched off instant formatting, and that does not make any difference. I am not tracking changes. Normal / print view makes no difference.
Anyone else have this problem?
