I can no longer search in EndNote. It’s ok if I search from within Word, but if I search directly within the EndNote app nothing gets found: “No matching references found.”
I found an earlier post about this and someone suggested removing the “spotlight” file and then opening the endnote library again. I don’t seem to have a spotlight file.
I have a <name>library.data folder, and inside that are four more folders: pdf, rdb, tdb and trash. Plus I have a file called <name>library.enl.
I’m using EndNote 6 on one machine, and EndNote 7 on another. My .enl file is duplicated on both machines and automatically updates (via dropbox) from one machine to the other.
I was searching fine until last week and then suddenly both machines stopped being able to search (right after EndNote crashed on the machine that runs EndNote 7). I was able to restore my .enl file from a backup but with no searching capabiity.
I gather I need to re-create an index or something like that but am not sure how.
