Anyone know if this works on Mountain Lion developer previews? or if it will work when ML is released?

I have found that Endnote X5 is crashing and essentially unusable on Mountain Lion. Most specifically, doing a PubMED search causes it to crash. I hope it is fixed.

I second Adam's concern. EndNote X4 and X5 both crash immediately when doing a PubMed search. I love Mountain Lion, but this is a huge problem

Apart from pub med searches, does general citation import and cite while you write work?

Per the Thomson-Reuters website: EndNote X6 for Mac will be released in September 2012 and will be compatible with MacOS 10.8.x.

Hi, i've been having some issues with endnote on 10.8x as well. This is what solved the issue:

1. System Preferences
2. Go into 'Network'
3. Click on the 'Advanced' tab for your active connection
4. Click on the 'Proxies' tab and uncheck both 'Auto Proxy Discovery' and 'Automatic Proxy Configuration'
5. Click 'Ok' and 'Apply'

It should work after this. Best of luck!

I just barely upgraded to Mountain Lion (all the way from Snow Leopard). Using EndNote X5 and Word 2008. I have a different problem than described above. Endnote works fine (importing from Pubmed included), but when I go to insert the citation into a word doc, the "formatting bibliography" window shows up and shows no progress. If I delete a reference from the document, same thing. I uninstalled Endnote and reinstalled - same problem.

I have noticed that Word 2008 likes to crash on ML though (and other than this Endnote problem, everything else seems to work fine on ML). So I'm a bit suspicious that the bigger problem is Word 2008.

wes, I just started experiencing the same exact problem today. Have you found any fix for this or we all going to have to upgrade to X6?

I am getting the same exact problem: WOrd for Mac 2008, Mountain Lion, Endnote X5 - crashing all over the place. Any help!?

Just to add my name to the list of people where endnote X5 hangs on "formatting bibliography".

I had the "formatting bibliography" hang problem with Endnote X4.0.2 and the most recent Office update to Word 14.2.4. Downgrading to 14.2.3 fixed it for me.
