EndNote X9 for Mac

macOS Catalina - Important message for EndNote for Mac users

Apple has released a new Mac operating system, macOS Catalina. Catalina will only work with the newest version of EndNote which is X9.3. Older versions of EndNote (X7, X8, X9.2 etc) are 32 bit programs and Catalina will only support 64 bit programs. 

If you already have a version of EndNote X9 installed, and you plan to upgrade your MacOS to Catalina, you will need to update to EndNote X9.3 first, following the manual update instructions on the EndNote website.

If you have an earlier version of EndNote (i.e. X7 or X8) installed, you can install EndNote X9.3 from the download link in this guide.

For information on the EndNote X9.3 update please visit the help section on the website of Macquarie's EndNote service provider, Crandon.
