While EndNote works similarly between Windows and MacOS, there are some important differences.
After downloading the install package from https://myutaccount.utoledo.edu/, you should be able to follow the normal Mac installation procedures. If the software will not install (lately the problem is being seen with EndNote 21), go to your Downloads folder (or wherever you saved the install package), right click on the install package and select Open. Users have reported success using that method, though variations in versions of iOS make this hard to predict.
After installing EndNote
The first time you open EndNote after installation, it may look as if EndNote did not install. EndNote doesn't automatically create a new library to open. Look at the top of your screen to see the EndNote toolbar. On the toolbar, click File >> New... and give your new library a name and save it.
Finding the medical.txt journal title abbreviations file
The first thing to do when you create a new library is to import the list of medical journals and their abbreviations. To find the file you want to import, go to the Applications >> EndNote >> Terms directory.
Importing references from databases into EndNote: Configuring your Mac
Generally, opening the file of exported references will automatically import them into your EndNote library. This is not always the case. If you can't export references into EndNote automatically, you may need to configure your system to open downloaded export files with EndNote:

After this, the EndNote program opens and you are prompted to choose an EndNote Library into which to import the citation.
NOTE: EndNote operating slowly? A backup program may be running in the background and slowing down the process. Try moving the EndNote files to a separate folder on the drive (at its own level).
Using EndNote with Apple Pages
EndNote integrates with Pages, though you may need to download the Pages EndNote plug-in from the app store. For more information on compatibility, see the EndNote help page.
EndNote and PowerPoint on MacOS
Currently, EndNote does not integrate with PowerPoint on a Mac. It will only integrate with Apple Pages and Microsoft Word only.
Transferring files from Mac-to-PC or PC-to-Mac
Consult the EndNote web site for current instructions on transferring EndNote files from one operating system to the other.
If the EndNote menu was not installed in your word processor when you installed EndNote, it is likely there is a compatibility issue. Check the compatibility requirements.

If Word crashes when attempting to insert citations, it may be due to corrupt preferences. For a potential solution see:
