EndNote Online: Manage Attachments

EndNote Online is a web-based program that allows you to organize your sources (articles, books, images, etc.), cite the sources while you write a paper, and prepare bibliographies.

Manage Attachments

Attaching Files to a Reference

From a list of references

  1. Click the file attachment button under the specific record to open the File Attachments popup
  2. Click the Attach Files link
  3. Click the Browse button in the dialog box to find and attach the file

Within the source record

  1. Click Attach files
  2. The Upload Files window allows you to upload up to five files at a time.
  3. Click Browse to find the file you want to upload
  4. When you have selected the file(s), click Upload
    Note: If a file is no longer attached to a reference, this dialog will prompt you to reattach the file.

Managing File Attachments

  1. Select Manage Attachments under the Organize tab
  2. Click the file attachment button to open the File Attachments window
  3. Delete file attachments if desired
    Note: If you delete a file attachment from a reference that you transferred from EndNote X5, you must also delete the attachment from EndNote X5. Otherwise, the attachment will reappear the next time you perform a transfer.

File Attachment Limits

  • There is no restriction to the size of a file attached to a reference. However, the total amount of space allotted to file attachments is 1GB.
  • If you subscribe to EndNote Online and have EndNote Desktop X5 or later, you may attach an unlimited number of files to a reference.
  • If you subscribe to EndNote Online and you have EndNote Desktop X2 - X4, you may view the names of files attached to a reference that you transferred from EndNote Desktop to EndNote Online. However, you cannot open the files or attach new files in EndNote Online.
  • You may transfer file attachments between EndNote X5 or later and EndNote Online.
