I’m using Endnote X2, OSX 10.5.5 and Word 2008 and I can’t insert my references into my documents. I get the error, “There are no references selected in the frontmost Endnote library,” which is not the case! I have tried re-installing, moving the *.dot CWYW files by hand, and tested it all using Word 2004 (also doesn’t work!). I saw this post:
Which contains the following, but there was no improvement. Any thoughts?

This should contain all of the steps from the various messages: If after installing the Word 2008 SP1 update and the EndNote X1 2008 update the tools still do not appear: 1) Close Word and EndNote 2) Open your hard drive and go to Applications:EndNote X1:Cite While You Write 3) Copy the files "EndNote CWYW Command.dot" and "EndNote Web CWYW Command.dot" by highlighting them and going to "Edit > Copy" 4) Go to the folder Users:[your login name with the house icon]:Library:Application Support:EndNote and paste the two files, "Edit > Paste" 5) Go back to the folder Applications:EndNote X1:Cite While You Write 6) Copy the file "EndNote CWYW Word 2008.bundle" by highlighting the file and going to "Edit > Copy" 7) Go to the folder Applications:Microsoft Office 2008:Office:Startup and paste the file, "Edit Paste" 8) Start Word, go to "Word > Preferences" and click on "File Locations" 9) If the Startup folder is not set, highlight "Startup" and click on "Modify". Select the folder Applications:Microsoft Office 2008:Office:Startup and click "Choose" 10) Click "OK" and close Word 11) Start EndNote and then start Word
