    edit citation

    Hi,
    I'm working with a school text. In it, there is described a way to edit citations by right-clicking on a citation. I don't get any options box/context menu when I try to do that. I can insert a citation and manage it through the ribbon, but no way to suppress the author year and/or title. Interestingly, when I do insert the citation, an extra space is added before the (.
    help please!

    A-ha, the document is in "compatability" mode -- opens automatically like that. When I hange it to non-compatability, it works just fine.
    Not sure about the "quality" of this type of feature when working with multiple versions/releases.

    The compatibility mode hobbles some later version features so you won't lose data (or capability) when the file is opened in an earlier version.
