I am having difficulty linking EndNote into Scrivener. I am able to locate the “EndNote” folder and exe file in my programs, but once I select it and hit “apply” nothing useful seems to happen. A strange filename “Icon86BF2D61” appears under the Bibliography/Citations Manager heading, and nothing happens when I then try to insert references into my document.
I’ve attached a few screenshots showing what I’m doing. It would be great if someone could point me in the right direction!!
I’m not a Windows guy, but that looks like the icon for an alias that points to the .exe which is stored elsewhere … perhaps, as suggested on a network server. If i’m right, that would explain why it’s not working in Scrivener.
This is also what’s happening to me - see my screenshots in https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/using-endnote-with-scrivener/30954/1
I don’t have a network server or any other location where Endnote would be stored - it was installed onto this laptop from CD - so I don’t think that’s the answer in my case.
Edited to add - solved! See notes on other thread.
You can see from the Bibliography/Citations Manager name (Icon…) that you have linked to an icon/shortcut that points to Endnote, not to the full Endnote program itself.
You need, I think, to select the actual program rather than a shortcut.
EDIT: See this thread/post…
Thank you so much! All fixed now.
