Endnote problem

I have Endnote 7.4. Is there a later version?  More pressingly, I am unable to change the refercne output style - i want to cite no more than the first 3 authors of an article in the text. Tried Edit -> Output style -> author lists  and made the changes but cant save them - Endnote just stops respondign and wont save changes.

Who is the best person to seek help form for this?

Thanks for the advice.

Hi Peter,

Do you know, EndNote X8 has jsut been uploaded to the ITD pages, though at this stage I think they've only done Mac - I've asked for Windows. If you do happen to have a mac you can find X8 here - https://itposhare.uts.edu.au/student/EndNote/Macintosh/

Once the Windows version goes up we'll change the library webpages accordingly. 

In terms of the style change it sounds like you're doing the right thing - edit>output style> citations > author lists > change the number in the box from 4 to 3. 

When I did this my EndNote slowed down for a bit and then recovered and I was able to save the style. I don't think I can attach a style file of it to this question but I have elsewhere on the website and that has allowed me to offer you this link - https://www.lib.uts.edu.au/sites/default/files/study-guides/Harvard_%28UTS%29%203%20authors%20et%20al.ens#overlay-context=guides/statistics/statistics

See if it works, and let me know if not

Hi Peter, I've asked for X8 to be put up for Windows also - hopefully that happens sooner rather than later. Have you tried the editing style I linked in my first reply?

Hello David

 

Thankyou again for the advice. I have managed to get the formatting style to work following your instructions - but it took a heck of long time for Endnote to do it! Still, at least it's done.

I have another issue now tho'. I am trying to download Endnote X8 from the UTS library site onto my home laptop (windows). Downloaded ok but i cant install the program. It didnt download as a .zip file but just as a Windows Installer Package (file name is "ENX8Inst" only)  When I  try to install it i get asked for the product registration code - which of course i havent got!

Any ideas ?

 

Thanks again

 

Peter

Ah geez - that isn't supposed to happen. I haven't run the installer on a pc - only the mac, and it worked fine there. I might see if I can test whether the X8 is giving up the product key error for everyone and then I'll follow up with ITS
