Setup PDF Handling and FullText

When you open EndNote, there are a couple of preferences we recommend you set for optimal performance: PDF Handling and FullText. Find out all about these in the videos/PDF on the Preferences page.

Setup EndNote Web for online Back-ups

Setting up a free EndNote Web account is an excellent way to ensure your library is backed up to the cloud. Do not use any other cloud-based services for this. For more information on EndNote Web, watch the video on the Back-up Library page.
