Option to exclude original publication date in in-text citations

There is currently no option to exclude the original publication date together with the publication date in in-text citations.

 

When excluding the date of publication in in-text references, the original publication date still shows up (e.g.  (1937/, p. 52) instead of (p.52)).

 

This needs to be adressed in future versions of Endnote, as varios citation styles such as APA do require the original publication date.

 

Example:

 

Reference in the bibliography looks like this: Hirschman, A. O. (1980). National Power and the Structure of Foreign Trade. Berkeley: University of California Press. (Original work published 1945)
 
This reference contains two dates.
This reference in in-text citations format looks like this: (Hirschman, 1945/1980, p. 3). This is ok.
 
However, when excluding the date, Endnote only excludes the first date (1980), but not the second date (1945). It ends up looking like this (Hirschman, 1945/, pp. 3-4) [exclude author and year] or this (1945/, pp. 3-4) [exclude author and year].
 
 

This issue was already raised in 2017!

(Adding the original publication date in the publication date field directly does work for in-text references, however, it screws up the bibliography. So this is not an option.)
