The simplest way to get the tools to appear is to open EndNote, and go to the EndNote menu. Select "Customizer" from the EndNote menu. Check the box in front of the "Cite While You Write" option. Click next until the Customizer is finished. Open a library then open Word and check the Tools menu for the EndNote submenu.
If you're not running Word 2011 or 2016, or these instructions don't work for you, please search the EndNote FAQ for instructions for your version (they don't allow linking to the answers) and for alternate methods.
Safari and EndNote
We recommend you use Mozilla Firefox as your browser when using direct export from databases on a Mac.
Mozilla-based browsers allow you to specify how to handle the data when you initiate a direct export, permitting you to select the EndNote application.
There are known problems with the way Internet Explorer, Chrome and current Safari browsers on a Mac OSX system handle MIME types, and this causes problems with the ability to directly export from certain websites into EndNote.
Cite While You write
The Cite While You Write (CWYW) functions put an EndNote submenu of commands on Word’s Tools menu. They allow EndNote to format citations and create a bibliography for the document that is open in Word. Depending on your version of Word you may see either a floating EndNote toolbar or one which is added to the standard Word toolbar options.
When downloading references into EndNote for Mac, sometimes direct export will not work; instead the output file will get downloaded onto the Desktop and you will need to import it into EndNote.
Ebscohost Databases allow you to do a direct export of your records into EndNote.
