EndNote Desktop: File Attachments

Features and functions of EndNote Desktop citation management software for managing and organizing references, and creating citations in Word.

Working with File Attachments


Up to 45 files can be attached to a reference record.  Although a PDF of the article is the most common attachment type, other file types may also be added, such as image, figure, and table files.

A PDF viewer available in the reference Tabs panel allows for opening, highlighting, annotating, saving, and printing PDF file attachments.

A single figure file and caption can be added to a reference record, which can then be inserted into a Word document.
