Incompatibility with recent MacOS update

Please be aware that Apple have recently released an update to their MacOS operating system called 10.15 Catalina. Unfortunately the update is causing various incompatibility problems with a range of software, including EndNote. If you plan to bring a personal Mac device to the EndNote workshop, we would advise delaying the update to 10.15 Catalina until compatibility issues are fixed, otherwise you may not be able to use EndNote. We will let you know if this issue is fixed ahead of the workshop. If you have any questions, please contact
