EndNote & Mendeley Word Plug-In Compatibility

There is a known issue with EndNote working properly with Word when Mendeley is also installed on the computer. Having both running may cause problems with the Word Plug-ins. So far it has manifested in citations not being formatted when using EndNote with Word. In order for EndNote to work properly, you will need to uncheck the box for the Mendeley Word add-in. For instructions on doing so, see the EndNote & Mendeley Word plug-in Incompatibility Work-around.
