WARNING - Oct 2015

Cite While You Write is not currently compatible with Office 2016/Office 365 on Macintosh, which will result in the Endnote toolbar tab not appearing in the Word menu. A patch for EndNote X7 is being developed to fix the compatibility issue, with a release anticipated for Winter 2015.
