Missing Menus including the Applications Tab in Preferences

As I’m getting used to Endnote I’m beginning to think I have a scaled dow version of the application. I had the issue where the application, when online, would go to Endnote Web instead of the Endnote X. As I looked into this issue I found that I have no Applications Tab in the Peferences (in both the Endnote Web tab in Word * The Endnote X Add Ins Menu).

Additionally I don’t get Author/Date or Annotate in the Styles sections.

Any advice? Would be much appreciated.

I don’t think that there was a “applications” tab for Endnote Web in X. 

Check the styles folder which should be in your (on windows machine) in Program Folder/Endnote folder.  How many syles are there?  X comes with >3000.  You can always go to http://www.endnote.com/support/enstyles.asp and download what styles you want, and save them in the Styles folder. 

(You may have to show hidden folders and files to see the folder.)

Thanks for that Leanne - I had about 2500 styles and I’ve downloaded the extra ones and now I’m up to about 2678. I hadn’t done that before so was go to figure that out.

In relation to that Applications Tab… I was reading the materials on switiching from Endnote Web to Endnote X (cause sometimes my word documents connect to Endnote Web - but now I realising it does that for the styles). According to the information to modify this behaviour you go to the Preferences - Cite While You Write- that option isn’t there on Endnote Web - but I’ve just tried it on Endnote X and I’m getting the ‘This parameter is incorrect’ statement.

So there’s a bit of snowballing on the problems - it would be great to solve this in one fell swoop!

Thanks, Conor

Conor, is it a Vista problem? The Endnote site has a fix for it :


Hope that helps.


I never used EndnoteWeb in X (and not even in X2) so I am afraid I am out of my depth here.
