I realize this sort of post doesn't help much, but I just feel the need to comment.
It's been 4 months since the Word 2016 beta preview was announced, and I've had Preview versions for at least a couple months now. The official version was released last week.
Yes, it's true you can continue using Word 2011 for the Mac along side the Office 365 (2016) Word, but that's no excuse for a company as big as Thomson Reuters not to have a working version, even just a beta version, of EndNote for Word 2016. For those of us who use FWYW, it simply means we can't use the newer version of Word until TR comes up with something.
On my Mac, I have Yosemite, but the first public beta preview version of the next OS, El Capitan, was released last week. No, I'm not going to upgrade the OS to a beta preview for my primary, working computer, but the 3rd party Mac developers are already sending out upgrades of their software to be compatible with El Capitan, even though it won't be official until September or so.

DO NOT UNINSTALL!!!!
I was about to uninstall office 2016 mac when i ran across my 2011 version still chilling in my applications!!
On you computer click Finder>applications>Microsoft office 2011>microsoft word!
I almost shouted for joy in the library when I realized this!
Keep both versions if you have the computer space until endnote is updated!!!!
Hope im not too late! =)

They simply do not care, people are posting the same in Facebook and here, I have consulted with technical service, there is not an official statement. They are programmers, not researchers like us, they do not care about the citation plugins
Mendeley has already announced that they will have a plugin in 2 weeks, I guess we would need to migrate to Mendeley, because Thomson Reuters is not interested in creating a plugin and they do not even think in giving us a release date.

I have been using Endnote since 1992! Each time a new version of Word came out they took months to get an update for Endnote. I totally agree with all the negative opinions of TR as a big corporation that does not seem to appreciate the value of customer satisfaction. Maybe I can understand this attitude when the Mac was a marginal product with only a small market share and one foot in the grave. But now that the Mac is so widely used, especially in academia, it is inexcusable that Word 16 preview can be out in March and that they don't have a version of the CWYW pluging that works with it. It is infuriating that they don't even let us know when to expect one.

Let's hope that it will not take MONTHS (!!), that would be absolutely horrible. Truth is that I find it difficult to suggest Endnote to fellow colleagues as support for mac is suboptimal (considering mendeley, papersapp, etc).

Now using the official release of Office 2016 provided by my University through Office 365. Stunned to discover Endnote is not working. Preivew has been out for months! I understand not supporting it then, but what were you guys doing during that time? There should be day one support of an official release, no excuses.

Jonathan, I think you're asking too much of this company. They'll get to it when the cash flow improves.
