Update to EndNote X5



Option 1

It is recommended that you use Program Updates. From within EndNote, choose "EndNote Program Updates" from the "Help" menu and follow the on-screen prompts. If you receive any error messages, close all programs and turn off any background software, such as virus protection software.

Option 2

Alternately, you can download a patch (please note that this is a .zip file that contains the .msp patch installer). To run this installer open the ZIP file and then double-click the MSP file to update your version of EndNote.

The patch is available at http://www.endnote.com/support/ENX501_WinMac_updater.asp

Improvements in the update:

  • Find reference updates for multiple references-highlight the references and begin reviewing available updates to enrich your EndNote library
  • Open and convert Reference Manager 12 Databases
  • Edit and update Reference Manager 11/12 citations in Word
  • Updates to Bibliographic formatting styles, Import Filters, and Connection Files
