How to insert prefix before last in-text citation?

I know how to right-click → Edit Citation → More… → Prefix/Suffix. And I thought the prefix/suffix could only be added at the very beginning or at the very end of the citation block. However I’ve seen from this other Endnote post that you can actually add a suffix to the first citation: the text is therefore after the first citation but before the semi-colon (this works for me). Like this:

(Devine, Forscher, Austin, & Cox, 2012 but also see, ; Lai et al., 2016).

But this is not correct because I want my text to go after the semi-colon and before the last citation. However when trying to add the same text in the prefix of the last citation, it goes all the way at the beginning of the whole citation block, like this:

(but also see, Devine, Forscher, Austin, & Cox, 2012; Lai et al., 2016).

This happens no matter which reference I select for the prefix, it always go at the same place. The other problem I have is that in this case I don’t want the references to be in alphabetical order: I want to cite the primary citation first, and then have the side note for the secondary citation. Therefore, I would like to have something like this:

(Lai et al., 2016; but also see, Devine, Forscher, Austin, & Cox, 2012).

How can I do this? Thanks.

PS: I’m using APA style and Endnote version X7.8.
