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!

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:

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 :-)
