Problem syncing library between desktop and iPad

Hi all --

 

I just got an iPad and EndNote X8. I imported all my PDFs into the desktop version, then synchronized it to my library. After setting up the EN app on my iPad, I can synchronize my library.

 

The problem is that some of the references on the iOS app are missing the metadata entries even though they are correct in the desktop version. I noticed that most of the ones missing the entries are the ones that I had to manually enter into the desktop version. Did I not do this correctly in order to correctly sync between the two versions?

 

Thanks

Re: Problem syncing library between desktop and iPad

I figured out how to solve this problem!

 

For the references that are missing information on the desktop, entering the DOI, then performing a References > Find Reference Updates... will fill in the necessary metadata. Then when I sync the library to the iPad app, everything is filled out. This fixed almost all my references that were missing information.
