Compatibility across different versions and platforms

EndNote is available in both a Windows and MAC version.  All files created in one platform are compatible with the other.

EndNote Version X4 can read libraries created in EndNote Version 5 and later (PC or MAC).

Libraries created in Versions X, X1, X2 and X3 are completely compatible with one another, and may be reopened in any of these versions. Version X4 automatically converts libraries created in Version 5 and earlier versions into the Version X4 format - once libraries are converted to Version X4 they cannot be opened again in EndNote Version 5 and earlier.

Documents formatted with EndNote X4 cannot be edited or reformatted with EndNote 7 or earlier versions. This could create problems for researchers collaborating on a paper, if they are using different versions of EndNote.
