Well, it appears to run very smoothly for a few minutes, but then I begin to get the spinning beach ball. Only shutting down and reopening EndNote appears to fix this, but I have to do it every 10 minutes or so.

My experience too. I haven't found a solution that holds up longer than a short session, then quitting Endnote, and restarting it: repeat. I wondered if it was my machine, but it is fully loaded (MacBook Pro 2016, 16 GB RAM, 1TB storage).
The problem is with EndNote, as others are attesting.
PS: Don't follow the advice of their help staff, who will make you run through endless hoops that do not avail, like relocating your library, rebuilding it, etc.

Ok...I'm at my whits end. Been workign on my dissertation again for the past week after taking a medical break. I don't know what happened to Endnote in the time I was gone, but I'm about ready to throw my computer out the window. Literally every 5 minutes while I'm typing in Word I get the beachball. Anything I do in Endnote itself is beachball beach ball beachball. Add a reference beachball. Open the reference, beachball. Add the PDF, beachball. I swear I've lost at least an hour if not more of work this past week just staring at a beachball because of Endnote. I know it's not my machine. What can I do to get this working or is it really time to invest in changing away?

I've been using Endnote for almost 25 years, and formatted up to 700 pages with thousands of references in one session. With Catalina I have encountered som kind of bug. Endnote works very slowly, even when only handling references without PDFs. When trying to update bibliography it goes extremely slowly, and with some more pages it simple tells me it times out.
I have EN X9.3.2 and Word for Mac 16.34 on a MacBook Air 2019 with 16 GB ram.

I have also been having this issue. Endnote X9.3.2, new MacBook pro with Catalina 10.15.3, and Word 16.34. EndNote peformance quickly degrades until it is unusable. I contacted technical support late last year about this and they said they were looking at the issue. I have emailed them 3 times this year for an update and they won't respond to my emails. Really poor customer service by this company.

New user here,
Just paid a fortune for this software so I could export from Ovid (C/W papers)
This is just awful-Using latest version albeit with High Sierra and slow as a wet week. Occasional crashes but beachballs everywhere.
Might just have to move library to Papers.
