First character lowercase ibid?

  • We'll need to test, then. There isn't a link to a style or a style name in the discussion above. Can you either post your style code to, save it was a Public Gist, and post the link back here, or indicate which style in the Zotero style repository is affected?
  • I've run a test with Zotero 4.0.26 and the current processor patch plugin using the Chicago Full Note style, as suggested by adamsmith above. With "cf." as the prefix on an ibid cite in the word processor, I get "cf. ibid", and with "my cf." I get "my cf. Ibid". That's the expected behavior, so we'll need to take a look at the style code you're running.
  • Weird. See the update of foerster-geisteswissenschaft in the last comment here:

    The newest file is here:
    Thanks for looking!
  • I loaded that style to Zotero 4.0.26 with the patch plugin, opened a word processor document, entered the same reference twice, and gave the second one a prefix of "Vgl." The output is:
    Vgl. ebd.
    Is that the result you see?

    Found the solution: I wrote "Vgl. " with a space after it. If I don't use a space after the dot, then it works. Thank you so much for your help.
  • Perhaps our code should account for that, and ignore trailing spaces. That might help avoid confusion.

  • I don't see a downside to ignoring trailing spaces.
  • @ikarus84: If you update the patch plugin gadget, it should now ignore that trailing space.
  • Now it's working like a charm! Thank you guys!
