When I add a new in-text citation with 3+ authors, the citation defaults to “Author et al.”, which is what I want. But when I “update citations & bibliography,” all the citations that had been “et al.” convert to “Author 1, Author 2, and Author 3.”
I’ve found that editing the citation to “suppress author” and then un-“suppress author” switches the citation back to “et al” format, but that’s a time-intensive measure for many citations and the next time I update citations, the “et al” citations convert to “Author 1, Author 2, and Author 3” again.
Could you please advise on a fix for this? In addition, when I update citations, I lose any formatting / highlighting that I had added to the original. Is there any way to retain highlighting etc. when updating citations?
