Remove final period in full text citations

It would be great if there were a way to remove the final period when making full text citations – just as it is possible to change the delimiters in parenthesized citations. In the article I am writing at the moment, for instance, for which the style guidelines require Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition (full note), I have sentences such as:

Wallis’s reference to Savile’s “duo naevi” inspired Girolamo Saccheri’s Euclides ab omni naevo vindicatus, sive conatus geometricus quo stabiliuntur prima ipsa universae geometriae principia (Milan, 1733).,and hence, ultimately, the development of non-Euclidean geometry.

The reference to Saccheri’s work is a Paperpile citation, with the author suppressed, but as you see, a period creeps in at the end. I can manually delete it here and elsewhere, but when I reformat the document, it reappears again.

We’ll look into that. The suppress author option is part of the CSL processing library we are using (, so I don’t think it’s a problem on our end which always makes it a bit harder to debug and fix.
