Book Chapter PDFs in EndNote

If your EndNote Library contains PDFs of book chapters downloaded from EBSCOhost, one of our main ebooks vendors, viewing the PDF through EndNote you will see a very visible watermark.

watermarkinEndNoteThis is caused by the way EndNote displays the PDF image.  To get a readable version of the chapter open the record, scroll down, and double click on the PDF icon.

Currently EBSCOhost is the only vendor we are having this problem with, but watermarks are common in publishing so EndNote users may encounter other instances of this happening.
