Omitting parts of authors names when sorting

In sorting Preferences you can identify which words are to be ignored for sorting purposes, such as prepositions in names (like “von”, “van” etc.). The problem is that some prepositions are combined of two words (i.e. “von der”). If I put “von der” into the ignore list for sorting purpose Endnote (X2 for Mac) ignores only the first word (“von”), which means the “von der”-author is not sorted correctly.

Does anybody know how to avoid this irregularity?

Many thanks,


Did you try putting in both von and der?  I got that to work in X2 for Windows.

It doesn´t work… thanks for the friendy advice anyway!
