New EndNote Mac Mojave issue!

EndNote Mac Mojave OS issue

The new Mac OS system, Mojave, includes new Security & Privacy functions which can prevent EndNote CWYW from being able to correctly automate, resulting in returning to the EndNote library or an Error message..  To correctly set these options...

  1. Go into the Apple menu
  2. Click System Preferences
  3. Click Security & Privacy
  4. Click the Privacy tab (along the top)
  5. Click the Automation options, along the left.
  6. Make sure that both "Microsoft Word" and "EndNote X#" are both turned on.

With this automation turned off, the Cite While You Write functions will not work.
