APA Page number formatting

I noticed when I use APA 7th edition in-text citations, Paperpile spells out the word page instead of p. or pp. Is there any way to change this? Here is an example:


(Hardin, 2015, page 47)


(Hardin, 2015, p. 47)

I know it is a little thing, but, I just want to make sure I am not missing something.


@Todd_Hardin_PhD I was not able to reproduce this in Google Docs or Word; the p. appears as expected, see the screenshot. Did you remember to click Format Citations in Google Docs? Without formatting the citations, “page” appears instead of p, see the blue (unformatted) citation. After clicking Format citations, the formatting appears correctly (see the citations in black).

Thank you so much Suzanne! I didn’t know I needed to “flip a switch” in Google Docs!
