Problems installing Harvard UTS style on Mac

Dear Librarian,

I have downloaded Endnote 7 and Harvard UTS style refrencing on my home MAC computer. However when I double click on the Harvard UTS style download ( or use open with endnote option) , endnote opens up but under the reference style I am unable to see the Harvard UTS style . And hence I am unable to add it to the endnote . Where am I going wrong ? Can you please help.

Thanks and regards,

Upasana

When the link opens, what does it look like? If it's a lot of weird numbers and letters then this might be best fixed by you bringing in the Mac and having us install the style for you. If it opens as a window with some information about the style, and a menu at left with templates and a whole lot of options for changing the style, that is good, EndNote has opened. Click on File, Save As, and save the style. Then close the style window, open your EndNote library if it is not already open (you may need to click on File, Open to do this) and then use the drop down style menu (this is normally in the bottom right corner of your library in a Mac, and initially may have a style called "Annotated" selected) to choose Select Another Style and then choose Harvard UTS from the list of styles.

Hope this helps

Hi Upasana

certainly! I'm rather busy tomorrow (Thursday) so if you want me to look at it then Friday, or next week, is much better for me. Let me know via direct email (my email address is on the library website).

Hi Upasana

Just to add to my previous answer, if the style is opening up in EndNote, did you then click on File, Save As and save the style? If so, after closing the open style window, you should then click on the style drop down menu, choose Select another style, and choose Harvard UTS. It should then be available in the style drop down (in both EndNote and in Word).

Cheers

Hi Upasana

something seems to have happened with recent updates to Mac software, that affects how Safari processes EndNote files. We're not sure how to fix this in Safari, so the workaround is to open the downloaded file using Firefox web browser. You should be able to "Open with EndNote" (you might have to choose EndNote as the opening software) when you click on the downloaded file.

Firefox is free and is easy to install as an alternative browser to Safari. You'll probably need Firefox when you download references from Google Scholar and databases, too, for the same reason.

Hope this helps

Hi Upasana

Chrome does have some issues too but seems better at understanding that downloaded styles and so on should be opened with EndNote.

Firefox seems to be the only foolproof browser for this stuff on the Mac; but sometimes the other browsers do work though. Sorry if this seems confusing, it seems to depend on your Mac OS and on the version of browser you have!
