Endnote 20 view PDF

Just upgraded to Endnote 20, is there any way to view PDFs within the main window (like with X9) instead of having it pop out into a separate window? This is a must have for me.

Re: Endnote 20 view PDF

I clicked on close of preview window and I cannot bring it back! I also cannot find the layout option in this version. Someone, please help me to solve this.

Re: Endnote 20 view PDF

There appears to be no way to preview a .pdf file in the "Tabs" panel as we could do in X9.  I tried searching the Help File but it does not appear to have been updated to reflect EndNote 20. All information in the EndNote Help file was for X9 and prior versions of EndNote.

This issue should be fixes asap! Otherwise it makes no sense at all to switch to Endnote 20. To have to read PDFs in a seperate window is a major step back! I have bought the upgrade but right know I feel deceived!

Re: Endnote 20 view PDF

absolutely agree – so far, I am disappointed of this version :-( Very sad

 

Please improve as soon as possible – this is one of the most improtant software a rewsearcher needs when writing papers and reports. It mustn‘t be a hurdle … it needs to be an easy going tool.

 

Regards

Sadly, I didn't check the community before I upgraded...

 

Removing the preview function, as many have stated before me and undoubtedly will do after me, is a huge leap backwards.

 

I actually turned down switching to a competing software simply because they did not have a preview function.

 

Please, give us back the preview function of PDFs!

 

As an added feature, give us the ability to preview a web site if we have a link, or save a "snapshot" of the site when we add a reference to a website!

Re: Endnote 20 view PDF

Same!!!! I just "upgraded", or in this case "downgraded", to EndNote 20. Without the PDF view window my productivity goes down and my frustration has skyrocketed.

 

If I had known how crappy EndNote 20 was, primarily because it lacks this PDF viewing feature that characterized previous versions, I'd not have purchased it. As such, I am seeking a refund and will see if I can purchase EndNote 9. 

 

If I can't purchase EndNote 9, I'll definitely see what competing products have to offer--goodness knows there are many viable options.

 

I am disappointed. I've been a heavy EndNote user for a decade, and have over 22,000 references (and PDFs) in my library; I have been that annoying ambassador colleague who recruits everyone else to EndNote. But wow, EndNote 20 really missed the mark. I'm out!

Re: Endnote 20 view PDF

I agree.  I am disappointed too.  The PDF view was a big deal for me.  Plus the new colors (black and green) are too much for my PC screen.  I will ask for a reimbursement, just bought it 3 days ago, and revert to my X9 version.

Re: Endnote 20 view PDF

If this is true then there is no way I would install the upgrade. Has anyone contacted support for confirmation or rationalization as to why they removed such a critical productivity feature? I should probably request for a refund for my pre-release upgrade purchase.

I did contact support – but the answeres were very generic. As much as they tried to answer – the reply was more or less: we forwarded your request to the programmers, but it is best to comment in the EN forum.

Quick reply, but no indicatein a) if and b) when the programmers might work on the improvements.

 

Let’s hope for the best!

Remark: I am currently beta testing another software, not related to literature management, and the programmer immediately addresses my comments to the latest beta version and im proves it within days. He said only when his beta testers are satisfied, he will release the final version – I think, many of us would be happily become EN20 beta testers if we knew our comments would be considered.
