Problems with EndNote plug-in, in Word 2016 for Mac

A compatibility problem with the plug-in software for EndNote in Word 2016 for Macintosh (i.e. the version students can download via Lisam/Linköping University) makes it impossible to insert references in Word documents at the moment.

At present, EndNote has no solution to this problem. More information can be found at:

There are three different versions of EndNote:
