prefix messes up my enumerated citations

Hi all,

 

I am having trouble with a little issue in CYWY. For the style I am using, I want to add prefixes. My desired result would look like this:

 

"I am citing my example with multiple references (e.g., 1-5)."

 

Without using a prefix, it usually likes fine, like this:

 

"I am citing my example with multiple references (1-5)."

 

Whenever I do introduce a prefix, the text some out in this way:

 

""I am citing my example with multiple references (e.g., 1, 2-5)."

 

 

Please, oh please, some help my resolve this. My desperation is growind and I fear I won't be able to take this frustration much longer. Surely, there is a simple solution that I am just too blind too see?

 

Thanks a million in advance!

Re: prefix messes up my enumerated citations

This one is tough, as endnote assumes you only want the prefix to refer to the citation you insert it into when numbered.  

 

Two things to consider, -- fix it last minute after removing endnote fields (convert citations and bibliograph to plain text -- make sure you make a copy as it suggests!).  Future corrections should be made to the pre-removal version. 

 

Hide the citations (edit citation, more -- mark each as "show in bibliography only") and type in the whole thing in the prefix: 

 

e.g., 1-5

Re: prefix messes up my enumerated citations

Hi Leanne and thanks for taking the time to answer this.

They are both good suggestions. But it is SO frustrating that this is apparently still not a built-in feature, even tough it does seem quite basic.

 

Again, thanks a lot. I guess I will continue to use work-arounds :-)
