Tip: Import your whole EndNote library to Paperpile before conversion. That way we can automatically connect the converted citations with your library and keep them in sync.

    Recommended: Check the Save backup option to back up your document in case something goes wrong during the conversion.

Tip: Use the same citation style you had in your original EndNote document. Unfortunately, we can not convert the citation style and always use your default style. Go to Paperpile > Settings and Tools > Citation style... and search for your style after the conversion is done.
