In EndNote 20, please, please, please bring back the 'bottom split' layout option

I do a lot of EndNote training for my organization which has a site license (currently EndNote X9) and have been an EndNote user since version 6.  I've had a quick peek at version 20 via a trial installation and was immediately horrified to see the Layouts option is no longer available (called Tech Support to confirm this).

 

The 'bottom split' layout is the one I have all (Windows) workshop participants immediately switch to, as in one window it allows you to see your references + a preview of an attached PDF + a preview of a highlighted reference in your chosen citation style.  This layout is incredibly useful and one that I and my workshop attendees have come to depend on.

 

So Clarivoate, please bring this key feature back!  On the Mac platform, there isn't an equivalent to the Windows 'bottom split' layout option (you have to toggle between 'bottom split' (to see pdfs) and 'bottom preview' to see formatted citations) but at least it was close. It would be ideal to have the Windows 'bottom split' option available on both platforms in version 20 and beyond.

Not just the split screen.I would also rather have it on the bottom

 

I made an serious error when I upgraded from Endnote 8 to 20. I effectively payed lot of money to get a programe with reduced functionality and minimlal flexibility compared with Endnote 8.

 

All the single buttton press functions now require you to remember a host of different keystrokes plus the annoying black field on the left cannot be moved and just takes up screenwidth better used for reference lines.

 

In additoin there is a single default text  for the appearance of refernces on the screen. For me the sceeen hadstoo much glare with spidery text agains ta white background.

So many people are complaining on this issue, a major downgrade.

The automatic PDF preview is a MUST HAVE for so many people.

 

@Clarivate/Endnote, when do/will you give us this feature back? Please respond!

As for me, I have went back to EndNote X7 and asked for a X9 license. It is impossible to work normally with EndNote 20 Smiley Sad

Same here. This "upgrade" feels more like a downgrade. Please bring back the old user interface with pdf preview.

Re: In EndNote 20, please, please, please bring back the 'bottom split' layout option

I completely agree. I updated to EndNote 20 but not being able to preview the PDFs as I browse through my library made me go back to EndNote 9. Unless you know all your references by heart (I have roughly 5,000), not being able to quickly preview the PDFs you search for within your library renders the software useless.

I have used EndNote since was a student (2002) and now I even recommend it to my students, but unless the "right/bottom-PDF" function is restored I will NOT buy subsequent versions and I will be forced to switch to other referencing software.

I really hope that the Developer team takes this issue into account.
