Changing the Word inline citation formatting so that it can be used as Latex citation key?

edited 6 days ago

Do you know how to remove the whitespace between author and year in the inline citation of Word? for example, "Smith 2020" to "Smith2020" or "Smith-2020" (without whitespace)?

I personally prefer Latex, but my cooperators prefer Word when they review my manuscript, so I need to transfer my manuscript from Word to Latex before submitting. I set my Latex key as "autherYear-pages", for example "Smith2020-12". It would save me a lot of time with the same inline citation of Word. But I can only get "Smith 2020-12" not "Smith2020-12". I cannot remove the whitespace. do you have any good ideas?

Thanks, Yu
