Question: I just got a new Mac computer and installed EndNote X7.5 in my new Mac. But I do not see the EndNote add-on tool in Word. How can I make the tool available?
Answer: The simplest way to get the tools to appear is to open EndNote, and go to the EndNote menu. Select “Customizer” from the EndNote menu. Check the box next to “Cite While You Write”. Click next until the Customizer is finished. Open a library. Then open Word and check the Tools menu for the EndNote submenu.
If the instructions above do no make the the add-on appear in the Tools menu, then follow the steps below:
- Close Word and EndNote.
- Open your hard drive and go to the following folder:
- EndNote X7: Applications:EndNote X7:Cite While You Write.
- Copy the file “EndNote CWYW Word 2011.bundle” by highlighting the file and going to Edit > Copy “EndNote CWYW Word 2011.bundle” or right click and choose Copy “EndNote CWYW Word 201.bundle”.
- Go to the folder Applications > Microsoft Office 2011 > Office > Startup > Word and paste the file.
- Start EndNote and then start Word.

Question: Our research involves many people. Is it possible to share our references with more than 15 people using EndNote?
Answer: Yes. it is possible. Although EndNote desktop allows for only 15 people to share a library, EndNote online enables users to share a group of references with many more people. To use that feature, you need to create a personal group on the Manage My Groups page in your EndNote online account assuming you’ve already had one. If not, it is very easy to create one free at http://my.endnote.com. To create a group for sharing references in EndNote Online, please follow the steps below:
- Under the Organize tab, click Manage My Groups.
- On the Manage My Groups page, click the blue New Group button.
- In the pop-up window, type a name for the group in the textbox provided. Then click OK.
Once the group was created, you may start sharing by following the steps below:
- Click Managing Sharing on the right to the group just created.
- Click “Start sharing this group.”
- In the pop-up window, you may start adding email addresses (separated by commas) of the people with whom you want to share the references.
- You may choose Read Only or Read & Write permission for any of the added users. It is possible to give some users Read only access but Read & Write access to other users within the same group.
- Users with Read & Write permission can edit or remove references from the shared group. However, they cannot delete the reference from your library if you initiated the sharing.
- When more than one user is editing the same reference at the same time, whoever saves last will have the final edits.
- File attachments cannot be shared among users in a group regardless of access privileges.

Question: Today, the Microsoft Word software crashed on my desktop computer. After restarting the computer, the EndNote add-in ribbon is missing from the Word menu bar on the top. It is now disabled. I tried “Options” but still do not know how to enable EndNote add-in. Thanks.
Answer: From the screen capture you shared, I noticed that you are using Word 2010. To make your EndNote X7 tab reappear in Word 2010, please follow the steps below:
- Go to File -> Options – Add-Ins.
- At the bottom of the list of Add-Ins, under “Disabled Application Add-Ins”, you should see “EndNote Cite While You Write” Add-in. To re-enable this, go to Manage: (the pull-down menu located at the very bottom of the same screen).
- Change the menu from “COM Add-ins” to “Disabled Items”.
- Click Go, you will see a little pop-up window.
- Click on the “Add-in: cite while you write (endnote cwyw.dll)” and then hit Enable.
- After doing that, close Word as well as all other Office programs and then restart Word. The EndNote Tab should reappear in the Ribbon on the top of the screen.
If you have more questions, please contact your campus librarian for assistance.

Question: I am using MS Word 2011 for Mac (OS X10.9.5) to write my dissertation. I was able to cite before using EndNote X7.3, but now I can’t. Every time I try to cite a reference from my EndNote library, an error message occurs saying “Microsoft Word has encountered a problem and needs to close.” How to make it possible for me to cite again?
Answer: According to Microsoft support at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2693802, this can happen if:
- Word preferences are corrupted.
- The user account profile is corrupted.
- Programs running in the background are interfering with Word for Mac.
- Application files are corrupted.
In this case, very likely Word preferences are corrupted. To fix this problem, according to Jimmy from EndNote Technical Support, first you need to check if Visual Basic is functioning by following these steps:
- Open a Word document, go to Tools ->Macros… Visual Basic editor.
- If there is an error, Word needs to be reinstalled. If you get the Project window, then it is fine.
The next thing to check is to see if CWYW is added on. Follow the steps below to check this:
- Open a Word document.
- Under Word menu, choose “Preferences… ” (Note: if no document is open, Preferences will be grayed out.)
- In Word Preferences, under Personal Settings, click on File Locations.
- In the File locations window, click on Startup.
- If it is blank in the path, then you need to navigate to the Applications.
- In the Applications folder, locate Microsoft Office 2011, then go to Office -> Startup folder -> Word sub-folder ->EndNote CWYW 2011.bundle should be place in the path now.
- Close word and then re-launch Word. Your CWYW add-on should be available now and you should be able to cite references.
