Automatically Letters a,b,c... in the Jear

Good morning,

When I do a bibliography export, the year numbers automatically show a,b,c for duplicate entries.

Example: Alexander H (1950a). Die Pleuritis: die verschiedenen Formen - ihre Entstehung Erkennung und
Behandlung. 2. neubearb. Aufl. Leipzig: Thieme. 59 S. Signatur: [M 207 (2) b].


Can I turn off the automatic a,b,c... off? In Zotero or in the style file?

Thank you very much

    If you have duplicate (i.e. identical) entries then you should merge those items within your Zotero library.
    Refreshing the document will then also remove the duplicated items in your citations/bibliography.
  • Hi,

    thanks for the answer.

    I don't want to merge the items, its important to have more items per Book.

    Is it possible to deactivate these letters?

    Thanks a lot
  • Yes, you'll need to edit the citation style.
    Open the style, search for "disambiguate-add-year-suffix="true"" and delete it completely.

    Follow this guide and change the title etc. As explained.

  • I didn't found it in the grafical editor. But i found it in the sourcecode from the style-file.

    Thanks a lot.
