  • Generate bibliographies,
  • Choose from thousands of citation styles, such as APA, Chicago, or Harvard and

EndNote X7: Compatibility with Office 365, Word 2016 and Word Online

EndNote X7's Cite While You Write (CWYW) tools are not currently compatible with Microsoft Word 2016 (which is available via Office 365).

Thomson Reuters (the company that produces EndNote) are creating a patch for EndNote X7 to fix this that should be available in Sept/Oct 2015.

In the meantime, you can keep a previous version of Office installed on your computer.


Insert temporary EndNote citations into your document, save a copy of that document as a Rich Text Format (RTF) document, and use EndNote’s Tools > Format Paper command. This works for any word processor that does not support EndNote CWYW tools, including Word Online and Google Docs.
