Question about 'from', 'von' and/or 'vander' in a footnote

edited October 1, 2020
Does anyone know how to deal with this problem?

When I place a footnote to a work by Gerard von Rad and Jürgen Moltmann, Zotero chooses to write 'von Rad' or 'Moltmann' when repeating the work. That is fine with 'Moltmann'. But for ' von Rad' Zotero has to write 'von' with a capital letter, because this is the beginning of the footnote.

1. Gerhard von Rad, Typological Interpretation of the Old Testament (Atlanta: John Knox Press, 1999), 17–39.
2. von Rad, “Typological Interpretation”, 21-22.

As far as I'm concerned, there's no way this is done automatically. The only option is to write 'Gerard Von Rad' in the database. Zotero puts that down in the repetition 'Von Rad'. But Gerard Von Rad is not the right spelling.

Has anyone got a suggestion as to how I can do this automatically? Now I change it all manually.
