ResearchSoft Direct Export Helper Plug-in
When you install one of our reference programs such as EndNote or Reference Manager, the system automatically installs the ResearchSoft Direct Export Helper plug-in. The plug-in opens a dialog box on the processing overlay that allows you to select one of these reference programs (if more than one is installed) and a reference library. If only one reference program is installed on your machine, then the system automatically exports the records to that program.
To remove the Export Helper plug-in, use Control Panel (or Move to Trash) to remove it.
