It messed up my citation order so I had to redo my citations. Also, suddenly froze and showing only white screen. Terrible experience...

Pretty excited to have my endnote references brought to docs (at long last!). Yay for collaboration! Some of the styles need a bit of work as they don't match the spec - probably teething problems for the new platform - but that kind of thing should be caught by the QA team... I think my favourite bit is that if you click a citation it opens endnotes web app and lets to add it to your library.

claims to be free of charge. Minimum pricing is $474 unless you're a student, and then it's $250ish once you're through your 14 day trial. Absolutely dishonest advertising.

I bought the latest Endnote 21, thinking I would be able to use Cite While You Write on Google Doc. My references would randomly disappear from my reference list. Certain in-text citations were created but could not be automatically generated in the reference list. Extremely buggy and inconsistent.

As other have said, it only supports Endnote 21. Many universities are still on Endnote 20, so this extension is completely useless. This is a money-grab by Endnote and really hamstrings institutional researchers.

Finally! I can use my EndNote citations in Google docs, Word is too expensive to get so using this in docs is a lifesaver. Thanks for adding this.
