EndNote not compatible with the latest update of Word 2016 for Mac

A new version of Word 2016 for Mac, version 16.xx, was released on January 18, 2018.

Unfortunately, EndNote X8 for Mac is currently not compatible with version 16.xx of Word 2016 for Mac.

Clarivate Analytics have announced they will be releasing an update of EndNote X8 for Mac shortly to address Word 2016 version 16.xx compatibility for EndNote X8.

If you can, it would be best to wait until the update for EndNote X8 for Mac is released before you update Word 2016 for Mac.

If you have already updated to the latest version of Word 2016 for Mac, you can either:

  • Try signing up for the EndNote X8.2 Beta, OR
  • Downgrade your version of Word/Office for Mac to the production release of version 15.xx
