Adding text/excerpts to footnotes

What is the best way to add text to footnotes generated through Zotero? To be more specific: oftentimes I will cite a source but I will either want to say something about this source or I will want to include an excerpt from the source in my footnotes. If I click in the footnotes to type in the extra text, Zotero can no longer update that footnote without erasing my modification. Is there a way to modify a footnote and still allow Zotero to update the footnote when necessary?
  • the recommended way is to use prefix and suffix fields:

    For very long footnotes you can consider adding the footnote in Word/LibreOffice and typing the text, then inserting the Zotero citation directly into the footnote, but for most purposes using prefix/suffix is preferred.
