I recently got a new computer running Mac OS10.5.6, and now with Endnote 8, I can no longer import references from text files. I also cannot import them from PubMed, connecting through Endnote. This worked fine on my old G4 iMac. I tried reinstalling Endnote, but this did not help. Does anyone know how to fix this? It’s a real drag having to enter all new references by hand!
see http://www.endnote.com/enleopard.asp where it says:
Due to major compatibility issues, it is not recommend to run EndNote 9 or earlier on OS X 10.5.
It is not possible to use the “Connect” option reliably.
EndNote 9 will not import text files formatted in many standard direct export formats.
There are no workarounds for these issues.
EndNote 9 and earlier versions will not be updated for Leopard compatibility.
To work with EndNote and Leopard, contact Sales for an upgrade to the current version of EndNote.
EndNote 8 and earlier
EndNote versions prior to version 9 were no longer supported at the time of the OS X 10.5 release. Our current list of supported versions is here.
We will not test or support running these older versions with OS X 10.5.
Note that the issues reported above for EndNote 9 may affect older versions of EndNote as well.
