RE: Word 2003-Endnote 8 problem

See if you have the track changes feature on in word... sometimes happens
without you realising. If it's on, turn it off.

Subject: Word 2003-Endnote 8 problem

I have been having a problem with Word 2003 and Endnote 8... at least I 
presume it is an Endnote problem - it only happens to documents with which 
I've used Endnote.

After working with a document, the first save generally seems to work just 
fine.  After that, however, it hangs up anytime I try to save or close the 
document.  It seems to be much worse just using "Save," rather than "Save 
As."  And if I haven't been very careful to use the latter just before 
closing the document, the application will crash and I will lose work.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Re: Word 2003-Endnote 8 problem

A couple of general things I've run into recently, when the users started 
to have Word documents problems:

- Windows:
1. Clean up temporary files, especially results of Office crashes, all the 
paths: TEMP and TMP directories, files with extension .TMP, "Temporary 
Internet Files", etc.
2. Run ScanDisk on reboot, and defragment the drive.
2. Make sure that the paging file and registry sizes in system preferences 
are appropriate for your configuration. In general, the allowed paging file 
size should be about 1.5 of the amount of RAM installed.

- Word and Office preferences:
1. Un check "Options" - "Save" -"Allow fast saves". It's a bug, not a 
feature...
2. Check how often Word is creating a backup document, try to turn this 
feature off.
3. "Options" - "Save" - "Save AutoRecover..." - try to turn it off. If the 
problem goes away, set it to longer time to try and find best solution for 
your station, depending on available space and speed of hard drive.
4. Delete and recreate normal.dot template.
5. Turn off real-time spelling and grammar check ("Options" - "Spelling and 
Grammar"). I found it very problematic with all versions of EN 8. If it 
solves the problem - check if there any conflicts in spelling dictionaries 
of Office and EN. On one case, I found a conflict between users' custom 
dictionary and default American dictionary. Resetting to defaults solved 
the problem for the user. Strange, but it exhibited only with EndNote.
6. "Options" - "Security" - "Privacy Options" - check "Remove Personal 
Information..." It will clean up all unnecessary path information from 
saved file, which may clean the document's structure.

creating one bibliography when there are multiple files

I am hoping for some advice regarding the following problem.

I have written a thesis in separate chapters (e.g 10) to avoid the problem 
of one very large Word file. I want to avoid joining all these files but 
have to create a single bibliography.  Is there a way to create a single 
bibliography without joining the files?

Any assistance with the above is appreciated (I routinely use v.3, though 
can readily access v.4, and possibly a later version if a strategy is 
version dependent).

regards

Bob Green

En8 Mac: turn off text formatting in record?

Greetings listers,

Does anyone know if there is a way to turn off all text formatting in 
reference records so that if you copy and paste from, say, a web page, 
that all the styles, links etc do not port across?

Or is there at least a way to select the text which is formatted and 
revert it to plain text (or font defaults) in a simple step, removing 
all colours, styles, fonts, links etc?

I've found it really frustrating trying to do this. My solution so far 
has been to copy the text from it's source (a web page), paste it into 
a plain text editor or drag it to the desktop as a clipping, the copy 
and paste that into the endnote reference field. Laborious to say the 
least!

Katy

RE: EndNote 9 beta test program [faked-from][heur]

It'a a pity that after two editions with Palm access, Endnote will still not have developed similar
functionality for Pocket PCs. Can we ever expect that to happen?

Re: endnote-interest-digest V1 #1760

Will a bugfix release of Endnote 8 for the Mac be released first, like you did for Windows? I'm starting to
reach the limits to my patience on this. The new version of Bookends is looking like a real alternative now
that they cleaned up the interface.

Solution to Endnote crashing on start with memory error message

The following problem was posted 09/2004:

Dear fellow Endnote 8 users
I have sent a copy of the following query to the techies at Endnote help
desk, but I am hoping that one or more of you can help me in less than
their 2 day response time.

I have been using endnote for over 15 years and only started having
persistent problems when I got a new computer with Windows XP and upgraded
to Endnote 8.

Problem 1: When I start start to scroll down in the library, the program
freezes and I get the error message:
The instruction at referenced0x0050395a-reference
d memory at 0x0015fbe8.
The memory could not be "read."

Here is the solution:

The problem lies in the settings of the permission for the program key 
in the registry - to fix it do the following:

Go to "start"
Select "Run"
type "regedit" into the field and hit enter - this will launch the 
registry editor
Click on HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Click on "Software"
Right click on the ISI researchsoft folder
Select "Permissions"

Re: Word 2003-Endnote 8 problem

Well, the fixes you suggested seem to have addressed the problem (if it 
turns out they didn't, I'll get more information and post back to the list 
serv).  I suspect it was the size of my pagefile that has been causing this 
problem - it was set to 384 MB, and I have 768 MB of installed RAM.  I don't 
know how that happened, but I've reset it and, like I said, it seems to have 
worked.
