[Word ]Writing italic in EndNote prefix

Dear all,

I currently want to add “n = 9 […]” in the prefix of an EndNote citation in Word. Since I cannot write the “n” in italic afterwards, as the automatic processing would delete the italic, I would like to ask how I can write in italics in the prefix of an EndNote citation in Word. I currently did not find any useful solution, so I hope someone could help me here.

Thanks in advance

Due to restrictions of MSWord handling of word’s fields, it isn’t possible to put italicized text or other formatted text into the prefix/suffix fields.

This might be worth a feature request if there were a way. Zotero and Citavi manage it by allowing a small set of html-like tags like or .
