I'm consolidating several X7 bibliographies into one large X9. Some entries have attached pdfs, which make the files very large 0.5GB. How can I get the pdfs out (export) of the app onto my desktop (Mac High Sierra) without having to email each one to myself? Isn't there a simple Download option? If not, shouldn't there be??

PS Actually, I cannot email myself the pdfs either: it requires that the email default is set to (Mac) Mail, which I don't use as I am enrolled in an institutional Google mail program. So there is no other way to extract an pdf from an Endnote file??

my preferred workaroud: You can search the .DATA folder (and subfolders) that contains your endnote library for *.pdf and it should pull them all into a search window and you can copy them to a new location.

That sounds good, Leanne, but where is the .data folder in an .enlp"?? I searched for .data in the Mac Finder and found nothing of the sort. I have seen the instructions "move the underlying .enl file and associated .Data folder out of the .enlp package file", but how is this done??

not entirely sure, as I am a windows user.... sorry -- but I found this in the knowledgebase:
Note: If you've saved your EndNote library as a package file (.enlp extension), you'll need to extract the package library's internal .enl file and Data folder before recovering:
