EndNote and Microsoft 2016 for the Mac

Compatibility issues with EndNote X7 and Microsoft Word 2016 for Macs

EndNote X7 is not currently compatible with Microsoft Word 2016 for Mac. EndNote is actively developing a patch for EndNote X7 and anticipate this free update to be ready in September/October 2015. 

What this means: EndNote X7 will work on Macs and will allow you to use add citations to your library. However, the Cite While you Write Function is not available until they release this patch. 

What is EndNote?

  • store references in one place
  • keep reading notes linked to sources (no more index cards!)
