How to force separator to be plain text following superscript citation?

I am writing a report, for which I was using APA 7th referencing, however with the need to cite many references at once, I switched to AIP.  The problem arose that this doesn't allow for page references when I refer to my reference books of thousands of pages.


Although there is likely another style that addresses this problem efficiently, I just made a copy of the style and appended my own page numbers, as shown in the screenshot.  The problem with this, though, is that when using the 'Author (Year)' template, this results in a superscript separator (which also occurs when using the AIP style), which just looks absurd and even worse than not having a separator at all.  I appended a plain-text space, however this really triggers me when I see it and it just looks distracting.


Anyway, I see no solution to this so I am hoping someone can clue me in as there really ought to be for a seasoned program specifically designed to handle these tasks (although seeing as endnote has yet to support regex I would not be that surprised if there is no solution).


I have also been having trouble with the hyphenated style for consecutive references: it appears as though the involvement of the page numbers results in failure to hyphenate consecutive references without page-numbers; i.e. for consecutive citations, one of which has specified pages, it would be ideal for endnote simply to treat said reference as if it were a nonconsecutive citation.


I do not know how to export the style in .ens format, so I have just attached the screengrab.

I don't see the screen grab and so am not exactly sure what you are seeing, or what you expect to see.  How are you adding cited pages?      


You have switched to AIP because you need to cite many references at once?  Why is that a problem with APA?  You will need to use the output style dictated by the publisher where you plan to publish?
