Re: Endnote 6 Web Sync - multiple libraries?

EndNote X6 was designed to Sync a single library with an EndNote Web account and not multiple libraries. If you have multiple libraries, we would suggest merging them. You can continue to keep them organized using EndNote's Group feature. See the following article on merging libraries:

Except isn't there a library size limitation?

That is correct. There is currently a limit of 50,000 references and 5 GB of attachments.

Re: Endnote 6 Web Sync - multiple libraries?

Can I add multiple library since to an official wish list Smiley Happy As a PhD student, I'm working on two large research projects, each with several groups and sub-groups. To merge them would be a disaster. For now, this makes the web sync and the iPad app 50% as useful as I hoped.

I agree, can this be added to a future release update?  As a doctoral student I have multiple groups and subgroups on my laptop for huge research projects, but on my iPad the group sets don't even appear at all, just the groups.  Fixing that AND being able to sync multiple libraries would be extremely helpful in organizing, and I hope to continue to use Endnote in my professional research after my PhD program.

Re: Endnote 6 Web Sync - multiple libraries?

Yet another doctoral student here who needs to sync multiple libraries (or at least alter the size limit) — I have one huge research project that eats up one library alone. I need a second EndNote library for the myriad references I use for the courses I teach and other general topics. As it is, I am only syncing one and constantly backing up the other. Not the most productive work flow....

Re: Endnote 6 Web Sync - multiple libraries?

I totally agree! Having one huge library defeats the purpose of having multiple libraries to separate your work, makes the scanning and review of the uber-library tedious, and would have to slow operating times for searching, reports, etc. Espeically when you take it to the iPad environment.

 

I don't see why the field is permanent once entered; it now refers to a library I no longer use? That library had errors and corrupted files (and 759 records). I've fixed it, and I want to be able to choose the correct library I'm working with (which currently has 126 records). Please open up that field and allow the old library to be replaced (on the web and/or iPad) with a library of one's choosing!!!

Endnote needs to keep up with technology!!! Really needs the ability to sync multiple libraries to a cloud for multiple computers and users. really frustrating!

Re: Endnote 6 Web Sync - multiple libraries?

Another call from a PhD-student. I have currently 3 major libraries, two master thesisses, and one PhD library. I'm working on different computers throughout the university. Synchronizing with Endnote Web has two difficulties: (i) I lose all my groups and subgroups (my library of my PhD is just one group) and if I try to synchronize Endnote X7 (is installed on several computers in the University) with Endnote Web, it takes so much time to sync because it's automaticcaly importing all the references of all my libraries (I cannot longer choose to only 'download' my PhD-group, what was a possibility in Endnote X6!). The only way is by Exporting and Importing through txt-files, but this is far from what I would call synchronizing. Hopefully this will be solved. As other repliers sayed, keep up with the multi-places-multi-devices-research-generation!
