MacOS Catalina & EndNote

EndNote X9 for macOS has been updated for compatibility with Catalina (Mac OS 10.15). If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available. You can access the updates here. However, if you have already upgraded to Catalina OS before updating your EndNote program to EndNote X9.3.1, the EndNote app will be disabled in the Applications folder. To fix this, you would need to reinstall the EndNote X9 version with the latest update (EndNote X9.3.1). For more details, please visit the EndNote support page.

You can download the EndNote X9.3.1 updated installer file from here.
