I have a colleague who has been working on different versions of an EndNote library for his PhD. His current version with a large number of references no longer allows him to import references from electronic sources. He can still manually enter and (strangely) import downloaded references via the EndNote program icon on his desktop. We originally thought it was because he had been synching to iCloud (which can cause problems) or saving the file as an .enlp file. But we have broken the connection with iCloud, and re-saved a version that is not an .enlp file, but still it won’t allow him to import any more references. I didn’t think there was a reference limit for EndNote Desktop?
Could it be that the previous use of iCloud, or the multiple versions of the library have corrupted the current file in some way to prevent it from importing further references?
