Important news regarding EndNote and Office 365/Word 2016

We have been receiving reports of difficulty using the EndNote Cite While You Write plug-in with Microsoft Word 2016 and Office 365. Below is a message from Thomson Reuters with a solution:

For Windows, it is possible to install the CWYW tools manually and you can find information and instructions at http://endnote.com/kb/137576. For Macintosh, we are working on a CWYW plug-in that will be compatible with Office 2016 on Mac, but it is not done yet. A public beta for it was released today. If you would like to beta test, or know others who would like to beta test, you can register as a beta tester at http://endnote.com/betasignup.

If you decide to beta test, please back up all documents and libraries before testing. Beta versions of software are not stable and may have issues, so it is best not to use them with important data, especially do not use them on important data without backing up that data first.
