Endnote CWYW Update for Word 2008 Compatible With Endnote X?
Like many users of Endnote X, I was disappointed to see that the Word 2008 CWYW Update required Endnote X1. I begrudgingly downloaded the X1 demo, installed the CWYW update, and launched Word to test things out. After the Endnote toolbar appeared I hit the button to launch Endnote, and it turns out that I had accidentally left Endnote X running, which the toolbar actually switched to instead of launching Endnote X1! I was able to insert a few citations from Endnote X and everything seems to be working fine. As long as I manually launch Endnote X before using the CWYW toolbar everything works as expected.
Could it be that the CWYW update works perfectly with Endnote X, but they listed X1 as a requirement to convince people to upgrade? Over the past week I've prepared a manuscript with Word 2008 and Endnote X using the CWYW update and I haven't run into any problems. All of you Endnote X users out there might want to give this a try before upgrading to X1 if you're happy with Endnote X.
