frontmost error message
Author: Mark Lea MMSD    Posted: Tue, 25 Mar 2003 13:12:32 -0600
Hey Gang,

I am using EndNote 6.02 with Word X on an Apple Ti Powerbook running OS X
10.2+ "JagWire". There are two constant irritants with that setup.

1. I get the message "There are no references selected in the frontmost
EndNote library." when I know there are references selected.

My workaround has been to go back to EndNote and re-select the already
selected reference. That is kind of a pain.

2. The second glitch is even more irritating. If a document is edited
shortly after it is opened in Word, Word frequently crashes (i.e., the
little multi-colored beachball spins forever). It seems to manifest itself
more frequently when Entourage is also open, but I can't be sure.

Does anyone have any ideas?


Sincerely,

Dear Mark,
I frequently had the same problem with Word freezing shortly after
opening a document and typing one letter, my only workaround is to
disable the CWYW feature, because if doing so, Word works fine. So I
reckon it is the CWYW plug-in that has the bug. However, this
work-around is _not_ perfect at all, but the spinning disk and restart
of Word is even more annoying.
Curious to hear from others, especially from ISI.
best regards

Gert

PS I tried to delete the normal.dot template but that didn't help
either.

this is the reply by endnote tech support to my enquiry about the
crashing WordX, i.e. endless spinning muli-coloured disk after typing a
few letters.
