The major new release of EndNote has arrived, and it has a long, long list of enhancements which include most of the popular requests from users of the previous versions.
Already the feature creating the biggest stir in EndNote 7 is the ability to free EndNote libraries from the desktop using a Palm handheld computer.
Although methods of transferring data to handhelds have existed in earlier versions, EndNote 7 allows you to search, edit and beam references, and then use the “HotSync” function to back up your EndNote library to the desktop.
The EndNote application for Palm OS handheld devices uses a format that supports all of the reference types and fields used in the desktop EndNote application.
It allows users to enter EndNote references into the desktop version of EndNote and/or into a handheld device.
It’s then straightforward to synchronise files between EndNote libraries easily.
It’s also possible to beam individual references to another Palm OS handheld.
The software works with every handheld device from Palm, Inc.
(such as the Tungsten series, Zire series or m series) using the Palm Operating System 3.1 to 5.2.
But this new feature is just one of many which we’ve been pleased to see.
