EndNote X9 Basic course

5.1 EndNote in your word processor

Which word processors?
The Windows version of EndNote X9 collaborates completely with Microsoft Word 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016, the MacIntosh version with Microsoft 2011 and 2016 (version 15.21.1 or later) and Pages ’09. In these word processors you can make use of the Cite While You Write functionality which is discussed in this chapter.
