I have noticed another strange behaviour on my documents, respectively this one larger document I’m currently working on.
It’s a .docx with ~280 pages (of which 30 pages are the bibliography), ~ 80 figures and ~20 tables.
So I have this case now, that I have multiple references for my own publications, which are from the same year and have the same co-authors.
I’ve set the in-text references with a customized ISO-690 citation style based CSL to display only the first author and adding et al. once there is more than one author:
(author 1, author 2, et al 2019a), (author 1, author 2, et al 2019b)
So in the case of two publications from the same year with the same authors PP will add “a”, “b” etc. to the year, which is normal.
I have one publication which has only my name and the name of my co-author without the third co-author on it, so that one is detected as (author 1, author 2, 2019).
So overall this seems to work correctly.
But there’s this strange glitch:
Sometimes PP seems to replace random otherin-text references with those 3 publication references from me from the same year.
When I right-click the reference and edit it, the popup modal has the correct info and when I click “update citation” the in-text refence gets updated and displays correctly.
Since this happens with random references and throughout the whole document I can “fix” all the refrences by going to the PP ribbon an clicking “update citations and bibliography”. But I have to do it twice, the first time nothing seems to happen, only the second time all the references get actually fixed.
So it’s not a problem which actually breaks anything, but it’s still strange and I’m not sure if it’s getting triggered by my 3 publications from 2019.
Does anyone experice something similar?
