How can we reduce this word count?

Hi everybody in this forum,

I have a question about how can we setting in “Endnote X9” program to automatic space between the word and the citation every time that I inserted, without increasing word count.

If I use a spacebar before inserting each reference, then total word count, such as in my example (excluding the ref.), will increase from “1” to “2”.

Hope that you can understand my question.
Thanks a lot for your advice.

Best regards,

That is word and not endnote’s problem. in your example example[1] would be counted by word as one word. Once you insert a spaces, it is counted as two words 1. is example and 2. is [1] – if you figured out a way (maybe a non-breaking space) the journal is going to count it as two words anyway, when they clean it up for transfer to their editing software.
