What’s new in EndNote X5?
EndNote users will notice few changes in the update from version X4 to X5. However, here are some new features:
- Add and Transfer File Attachments to the Web - EndNote X5 users now attach files, such as images and PDFs, to records in EndNote Web. File attachments can be added directly in EndNote Web or transferred from a library saved locally on a computer. The EndNote Web storage capacity is 5,000 references and 1GB for file attachments.
- View and Annotate PDF files within EndNote - A new PDF viewer enables users to view PDFs within the library window. It also has basic annotation functions. and edit a record in one place. Users can search the entire PDF including comments.
- Update References Automatically - Existing references can now be updated easily with a new option that lets EndNote search online for more complete reference detail. When a match is found, EndNote highlights the differences in a side-by-side comparison of the new and existing reference. While any field can be updated, the new feature saves time for existing references that now require article identifiers such as PMCID.
A 6-minute video demo of the software, including a summary of new features, is available on the EndNote website.
