Bring back the ability to customize the layout of the panes. I don’t know what it was removed in the first place in 20. Not a good idea to take away something that several previous versions of Endnote have allowed you to do.
I agree the layout is bad taking the preview panel from below the references. I do not like the dark layout around the references, it is hard to see everything. I would have stayed with EndNote X9 had I know about all the changes.
please bring back the preview to the bottom. Preview on the right side makes NO sense. This is a major bummer. At least make it customizable. Allow users to chose where the preview panel should be.
Agree, the side by side layout doesn’t allow you to read the abstract without severely limiting how many fields I want to view in list pane. I really don’t like this update UI changes.
And I just realized that if I increase horizonal size of abstract/preview pane the list view doesn’t scale down and it actually hides multiple columns. That is really terrible, really hurts the way I use the tool. And another bad result is now I cannot view the whole abstract and also open individual reference to edit custom fields at the same time. If I am looking at abstract I can’t see all fields if I want to edit.
We were going to upgrade all our users, but this might stop us from doing it.
100% agree! I don’t understand why Endnote took the existing options away. The side-by-side layout is extremely difficult to read. I prefer to read the reference info at the bottom of the screen.
I 100% agree!
What I would like to see is the option to make the preview/summary panel a floating window so that I can drag it onto my second monitor and thus free up the (very limited) space in the EndNote window to view the citation lists and folders. I don’t want it at the bottom or the side as it eats up too much space either way.
We should also be able to customize the fields in the summary panel - I need to make some of the other fields (eg. Notes) viewable without having to go into the Edit screen.
I, too, would have stayed with my earlier version now I have used V20 for a while.
