Annoying bug in Write-n-Cite for Word
I think this has only come up with the last few versions and I just tried that it exists with 4.5.1682.
When Write-n-Cite is installed and activated in Word but user has not logged in to it (because not actively using it), Word shows up the Write-n-Cite login dialog every time a document is opened via the Word recent files.
This is a problem because we have deployed Write-n-Cite to all our campus workstations and obviously not everyone uses it.
I think that this is a bug that needs to be looked into.

This Write-n-Cite behavior is currently under review.
Looks like this bug is finally fixed in 4.6.69!
By the way, the dowload page is misleading because:
"For Word 2016 only" - but it does seem to work with O365 Click-to-Run just fine, luckily. Otherwise it would be pretty useless by now, right?
Only the 32-bit version is offered at first before clicking "Other Windows and Mac Versions". Surely 64-bit is more common by now?
We are considering to give up to use Write-n-Cite. This Log-in dialog is likely to phishing application, since this comes up unintentionally; we are taking this very seriously.
Just checked with 4.5.1732. Not fixed.

We have the same trouble at some clients in Japan. Could you let us know if there is any progress to solve this problem ?
And still there with 4.5.1725. Very annoying. We will need to disable the add-on for all users by default.
And this bug is still there with 4.5.1710. I wonder if this is getting looked into at all?
