Here is a description of how to download/sync your existing EndNoteOnline library to a new computer where you have installed EndNote.
- Create a new, empty EndNote library on your new computer. EndNote: File > New...
Don't save your library in a folder where other programs sync/backup the files (DropBox, OneDrive, iCloud, etc.). On Mac, this means that you must not save your library in the document folder or on your desktop (these folders are by default synced by iCloud. iCloud can damage your library). On Mac, we recommend saving to the Home folder (the house icon).
- Log in to your EndNoteOnline account and note your email and password at www.myendnoteweb.com
- Enter the same login credentials into your EndNote preferences. EndNote: Edit > Preferences > Sync > [enter credentials] > Ok.
On EndNote for Mac its: EndNote: EndNote > Preferences > Sync.
If you have a Basic account of EndNoteOnline, you can upgrade it to a premium EndNoteOnline account by choosing EndNote: Edit > Preferences > Sync > Enable > Sign up. Your existing account will be upgraded to a premium EndNoteOnline account.
- Choose EndNote: Tools > Sync to sync your new library with your existing EndNoteOnline library. Since your "new" library is empty this in effect means that you download the references from your EndNoteOnline account to your new library/computer.
