Library window toolbar

These are commands that are available when browsing an EndNote library. The icons represent the most commonly used features in this part of the program. Of course, all functions under these buttons can also be used via menus.
The icons are only active / available if the command is relevant. It is,  for instance, not possible to use the «Open Link» command if the selected reference has no link registered.

The commands are grouped according to their functions.

First group of commands access some features in working with the EndNote library itself.

Sync Library
– Synchronizes your EndNote library with your EndNote online library

Online Search Mode

The next «group» is a command that lets you choose what program layout you want.
The options are described on a separate page for changing program layout.

The last command in the top line gives you access to search the EndNote library:

Quick Search
– Used for simple search in (parts of) the EndNote library, included PDF files and your notes in PDF files.
(See more on search)

The output style selection selector is presented under the individual references when you select «Bottom – Preview» or «Right – Preview». Note that this does not affect which style you use in the text document you are working on.

Depending on what kind of layout you have chosen for the program window, various toolbars will be presented around the screen. Refer to the presentation of the other toolbars for the explanation of the operation of these icons / commands.
