Issues with Mendeley Reference Manager
The new Mendeley Reference Manager program has a number of issues with working with Microsoft Word. There are numerous complaints about Mendeley Reference Manager and the Mendeley Cite add-in in the Microsoft AppSource store and clients have experienced serious issues with the add-in.
It is not recommended that users install Mendeley Reference Manager at this time. We strongly recommend that clients use the original Mendeley Desktop software instead. You can download it here.
If you have any trouble installing the original version on your macOS device or if you need to migrate from Mendeley Reference Manager to Mendeley Desktop, please contact Kirchner van Deventer or Letlao Seloma to assist you.
For clients at Tygerberg Campus, please contact Yusuf Ras for assistance
