Important information to Mac users autumn 2019:

Mac will launch MacOS Catalina later this autumn where old versions of EndNote will not function and be supported. However, an update, EndNote X9.3, will be launched prior to that (date not yet set). Please update to EndNote X9.3 prior to the update of MacOS Catalina and EndNote will continue to function as usual. You will get a notification when opening EndNote when the new version is ready for download.

Already now, you will get a warning that EndNote is not compatible with 32-bit applications like EndNote X9.2 and prior versions and to contact the application developer.
