My organisation is planning to disable all macros across all installations of Office 2016.
What are the implications for EndNote users and CWYW in Word?
I am getting conflicting information from EndNote support and a general google search.
EndNote support says everything will work fine except keyboard shortcuts and that we must delete all .dotm files found in these dirs to avoid errors:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\ResearchSoft\Cwyw[version]
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ResearchSoft\Cwyw[version]\
I found places on a google search that said CWYW will not work at all with macros disabled. For example: https://support.alfasoft.com/hc/en-us/articles/360003671418-EndNote-CWYW-Cite-While-You-Write-add-in-in-Word-is-greyed-out … that site says “EndNote CWYW functions in Word are macros”, the implication being that if macros are disabled then CWYW will not function (disregard the actual topic on that webpage, my point is to do with that one statement).
Does anyone here have any definitive information?
