I start testing X7 version. With many ebooks and epapers I found useful the new feature to import a folder files as (link) attachment.
Yet, the feature is missing - in my opinion - something very important that for brevity I may call autocomplete.
Take this scenario as example: 1) Import a folder with 1 pdf file that has an isbn number as its file name. 2) EndNote X7 puts the file name as item title, and the PDF file as (link) attachment. 3) Now one wants to complete the diffierent fields of the reference EN record.
I use a library (Congress library for instance) that gives the reference starting just from the isbn number. But I am completely unable to update with some automation the record that already contains the above pdf attachment. So the workaround (very combersome) seems:
a) take from the record made in step 1-3 or from the attachment the isbn number
b)open a library connection and download the appropriate record reference
c)reattach the pdf file to this new record.
d) delete the original record made with EN new feature described in step 1-3.
So the new feature is in practice completely unuseful!
Thanks for any feedback.
