The wait is over! Now Mac users can get their hands on a copy of EndNote X6 – the latest version of Thomson Reuters’ popular powerhouse bibliographic package! Not only can they benefit from great new features like the PubMed direct export capability, ratings and read/unread status buttons for references, more screen layout options and better control of capitalisation, they’re also able to sync up their EndNote and EndNote Web library so all references and attachments can be accessed from both packages. Mac users also gain some extra functionality which will be soon be featured in the Windows X6.0.1 update. This includes font editing in the Find and Replace feature, plus a new punctuation option in the style editor. Read more detailed ‘what’s new for X6’ information online here.
Along with all the new features in EndNote X6 on the desktop, users also have access to a new Bookmarklet feature via their EndNote Web account which automatically captures bibliographic information on a webpage and then creates a new references which can be saved to a new or existing group in EndNote or EndNote Web. This new tool invokes the Capture feature without the need to install a plugin or have PC admin access. The Bookmarklet is available from the installer page.

Last week, Adept’s bibliographic software expert, Stephanie Marshall, travelled around the country with Tilla Edmunds, Product Manager at Thomson Reuters, to hold a series of ultra successful software user meetings. These unique EndNote VIP events (which happen no where else in the world) provide key UK customers in education with a chance to talk to Thomson face-to-face and exchange knowledge. We wanted to bring our roadshow within easy reach of attendees, so we held our meetings at key cities across the country, including Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol and London. We were pleased to see both new and familiar faces.
Participants got a sneak preview of brand-new EndNote X6 ahead of its official public launch later this summer. They were keen to see the inclusion of a new Sync button to quickly, easily and automatically synchronise desktop and web-based libraries, as well as new record read/unread status indicators and the ability to rate favourite or frequently-used references.
Attendees also got a first look at the keenly awaited EndNote ipad app due out in the autumn to coincide with the planned EndNote X6 Mac release. This new tool will complement EndNote on the desktop by putting on-the-go PDF viewing, annotating and emailing capabilities at the disposal of ipad users. The app also enables users to add, edit, group, copy and email citations, as well as sync them with their EndNote Web account.
Adept and Thomson gained plenty of software feedback, as well as new insight into the needs of our bibliographic software customers in education and research, and the issues they face with maximising the use of EndNote/EndNote Web on campus. A rewarding and enlightening roadshow for all involved.
