Going from Single source to Multiple sources and annotations disappear.

I've been working with a faculty member at my institution who has an issue with the way Zotero handles going from a single source to multiple sources and his annotations of those sources within footnotes/endnotes.

Here is his issue: He cites a source and adds some annotation after the note using the editor. He later comes back and wants to add in another source to that footnote so he clicks on "multiple sources" and all his previous annotations disappear.

Is this a bug or is there some reason that Zotero does this?
  • He should use prefix and suffix for annotating sources. Anything you do in "show editor" is overwritten when the citation is updated (which includes turning it into a multiple-source citation - although I thought he'd get a warning before that happens.
    See here for prefix/suffix usage.
