Up to a week or so ago, I was running Endnote X7.7.1 and Word 2011 for Mac on a 2011 MacBook Pro under OSX 10.10 Yosemite. Everything worked fine. (Oh happy days!).
Then I bought a new MacBook Pro 2018 running OS X 10.13.3 High Sierra. I migrated all my apps and documents. Word 2011 continued to work, and Endnote 7.7.1 continued to work. But they no longer worked TOGETHER - i.e. no CWYW in Word, insert citation from Endnote told me there was no open document to insert into, and no Endnote section in the Tools Menu, and so on.
In the hope that it would solve the problem, I looked at the full compatibility page for Endnote X8. There I saw:
Macintosh compatibility and system requirements
What you need:
- Mac OS 10.10 and above
- Intel-based Macintosh
- Hard disk with 700 MB available
- Minimum 2 GB of available RAM
- CD-ROM drive required for installation of shipped version (not required for installation of download version)
Word processor software
- Microsoft Word [Cite While You Write] for Macintosh: 2011, 2016 (version 15.21.1 or later, including version 16.x)
So I thought I should be OK … I paid over £100 to upgrade to Endnote X 8.2.
Same problems as before.
SO - if I upgrade to Office for Mac 2016, will things work then? Given the price of this software, I am hoping for a clear and simple answer that will not require me to tinker endlessly to do things that software at this price should do automatically.
