Figure Attachments

Attaching a Figure to a Reference

  1. If you are viewing a list of references, click the figure attachment button to open the Figure Attachments window. Then click Attach Figure.
  2. If you are viewing the full reference in the View Reference window, click Attach Figure.

  3. In the Upload Figure Attachment window, click Browse to find the file containing the figure you want to upload. When you have selected the file, click Upload.

Note: If a figure is no longer attached to a reference, this dialog will prompt you to reattach the figure.

Managing Figure Attachments

  • Select Manage Attachments under the Organize tab to display a list of file and figure attachments.
  • Click the figure attachment button to open the Figure Attachment window where you can view the file name of the figure attached to the reference.

You can delete a figure attachment from either window. Note: If you delete a figure attachment from a reference that you transferred from EndNote desktop, you must also delete the attachment from EndNote desktop. Otherwise, the attachment will reappear the next time you perform a transfer.

  • If you subscribe to EndNote X5 or later, you may attach one figure to a reference.
  • There is no restriction to the size of a figure attached to a reference. However, the total storage capacity for one account (references + attachments) is 5GB.
  • You may transfer file attachments between EndNote X5 or later and EndNote online.
