CWYW drawing styles from wrong folder/not compiling styles

[ Edited ]

Due to an issue with the styles folder not saving edits (see: 'can't save change to custom output style') I changed that folder that endnote saves styles to to one in a different drive. However, CWYW is still drawing the styles from the old folder. Does anyone know how to change this?  Currently the only way I can update styles is by changing them in endnote and then copying and pasting across these two folders.

Re: CWYW drawing styles from wrong folder

In EndNote, when you display a list of styles, filters, or connection files in EndNote, the list is compiled from two locations: the installation folders and your personal folders.

 

The installation folders include:

 

Users/Your Folder/Documents/EndNote/Styles
Users/Your Folder/Documents/EndNote/Filters
Users/Your Folder/Documents/EndNote/Connections

 

You can set a personal folder location using the following steps:

 

To change your personal folder locations:

 

From the EndNote Edit menu (EndNote menu MAC), select Preferences.

Click on Folder Locations.

 

To change a folder location, click the Select Folder button.

 

Select or open the folder that you would like to designate as the new Style, Filter, or Connection folder, and then click Choose Select Folder.

 

If you are still having trouble setting a folder location and saving styles then please Product Support directly

Hi Tony,


This is exactly what I did. However, CWYW continues to draw the files from the installation folder only. It does not correspond with the folder location I set in Endnote's Preferences and it does not compile the contents of both folders (i.e. edited styles with distinct names are not carried over into the folder that CWYW draws from). How can I fix this? I can't go back to using the installation folder as it will not let me save edited styles.

Re: CWYW drawing styles from wrong folder

You can try use the setting in EndNote Preferences to reset the Folder Location to the Default and place any styles you want to edit back in the

 

Documents\EndNote\Styles location.

 

If this does not resolve the issue then please contact Technical Support directly:
