EndNote Troubleshooting on Mac

Insert Citation in Word not working following new EndNote download

Security features (especially on new Macs using Mojave) may stop many things working (even if they were previously OK with older download of EndNote).

This often stops EndNote and Word talking to each other – so that inserting a reference in Word doesn’t work and may take you out of Word back to EndNote. You should get a dialogue telling you what to do, this may go unoticed or perhaps won't actually appear.

Possible solution:

Navigate: Apple menu > System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy Tab (at the top) > Automation (on the left, scroll down), then tick the relevant EndNote and Word boxes.
