The quantity of grouped in-text citations more than 10

Nov 23, 2011 at 11:01 AM

I can't insert in one group of in-text  citation more than 10 sources. I mean that [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10] is the limit but I really need more sources to insert sometimes. Do you have any solution for this? Thanks

In-text citation fields are limited to 255 characters for the field code. There is no way to change that limit.

One way to solve your issue is play around with the tags of your sources. If you don't care about them, make the tags smaller. Word generates them automatically to something like 3 letters and 2 digits. If you don't care about them, you could make them 2 letters. That would means that you can add a lot more to the group.

I tried this but have no result. I can add more than 11 sources to the field code, 255 charaсters is enough. But Word displays only first 11(sometimes 10) sources, other are cutted and not dispalyed. Tags length doesn't  matter.

You can't. See for the explaination and a 'workaround'.
