Attaching Files

If there is an attachment to a record in EndNote Online, the paper clip will be blue. If there is no attachment, the paper clip will be gray.
Attachments do not import directly into EndNote. Save the pdf or other file. Import the reference into EndNote Online. Click on the gray paperclip in the citation. Click on Attach files, browse to the file and upload.
You may upload multiple files into the attachment field. There is no limit on the number, but EndNote desktop is limited to 45. So if you wish to synchronize, keep the desktop limitation in mind.
You may view the attachments in your EndNote Online account, but if you have shared a group with another, they will not be able to view the attachments.
You may synchronize with the desktop with references that contain attachments which will then be available in both EndNote  online and desktop.
