I am using a style in EndNote X3 for which the default behavior was to include initials with in-text citations if there are multiple citations by the same first author. I wanted to change this to not include initials, and instead use letters after the year. I edited the style and unchecked “Include the author initials…” and checked “Add a letter after the year”, but my in-text citations (this is a Pages document) still show the author initials. I saved the changes to the style. I tried switching to another style and then back again, but that did not work. I tried quitting Pages and EndNote and reopening, and that did not work. I tried saving the style as a new style, but that did not work. I’ve checked the entire style for other places where this might be controlled and can find nothing. I unchecked “add a letter after the year” and it changed immediately in my document, but the initials still appear even when the option for initials is unchecked.
I’ve searched the forum for this problem, and only see responses regarding a different issue with initials. Anyone else seeing this problem?
Additional info: The initials do not have periods, and this behavior occurs even in cases where there is only a single citation - e.g, [A B Jones, 2000]. It also occurs in cases where there are multiple citations, but none with the same first author. The behavior occurs regardless of whether there is a single author, two authors, or multiple authors.
