Use a list of PMIDs to do a PubMed Query in EndNote (Mac)?

In V6 of EndNote for Mac, it was possible to take a list of PMIDs (for example generated by searching at PubMed),  and simply paste them into the EndNote Online Search query for PubMed, specifying the field as PMID “contains”.  No operators were needed between the PMIDs.  Hit the search button, and the interface would pull back the PubMed references to be incorporated into a library.  

Example, pasting in this block of PMIDs would return the five references.  THIS WAS INCREDIBLY HANDY.


Retrieving the references this way was also more bullet proof than an downloading the refences as MedLine.  The URLs populate automatically.  

I’ve updated ot V9.1.1 of EndNote. This same method just results in a search that never concludes.  Argh.  IT WOULD BE SO SAD IF THIS TERRIFIC FEATURE HAS GONE AWAY.

Hello Bob,
