Thanks but those folders are all with the app in my Applications folder and are not backed up to any cloud service. Right now nothing related to Endnote is backed up/synced to Dropbox yet the app slows down over time and becomes unusable (you know-the status quo these days with Endnote) until and unless I quit ENX8 and restart it. No other app, and I have apps that also are database-driven like Endnote, behaves this way.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?
I am running X8.2 with 10.13.4.
I have moved all folders off Dropbox and put them on the local drive.
STILL PAINFULLY SLOW!

Okay, Zotero is WAY faster. Exported all of my EndNote entries (nearly 200). Get instructions from their website (export XML). Imported easily into Zotero. WOW! It seems lightning fast compared to EndNote.

Just got off the phone with tech support.
THEY SOLVED MY PROBLEM.
Apparently, if you have PDFs in your database that CONTAIN ANNOTATIONS, this is causing the problem.
I only had two PDFs.
When I removed them, problem solved.
They are taking the issue up with Apple and are aware of it.
In the meantime, delete your PDFs and it should help
