I have been using Endnote for years. After some break in use, i just realized that in this new version (X2 for mac) when i search an online database, say pubmed, the references that are found automatically get added to whatever library is open at the time. In the past versions, a search window would open listing the found references and you then had to manually select and choose whether to import them into an existing or a new library.
Much to my horror i just realized that the results of my two recent large searches have added themselves into my main precious library! Of course i deleted them but this means that a whole lot of record numbers are no longer available (since endnote does not allow same record number twice, even if you delete a reference).
Is there a setting i should change for this behaviour to go back to the old way? Sorry if this is a really easy thing to do, but i havent actually spotted it!
If it is not possible than it is really annoying, does it mean you always have to make a new temp library first and search from within that, then move references over if you want to keep them somewhere?
Many thanks for any clarification.
