Trouble with date ranges

Trying to use date ranges in Zotero, for a multi-volume work.

I’ve tried ‘issued’ ranges in Extra field, eg ‘Issued: 1927/1931’. But this isn’t working. Tried, in various combinations: lowercase and capital ‘i’, space and no space after colon, hyphen (-) and forward slash (/) between ranges, full dates and years.

Certain I have got this to work before… What am I doing wrong here?
  • Issued: 1927/1931
    in Extra (make sure it's at the beginning of a line) should definitely work and does for me.

    Which citation style, which Zotero version, and how are you testing this?

    Thanks for this. I'm using Oxford University Press (full note), but also tested on Chicago Manual, 17th edn. Checked both styles are up-to-date versions from the repository. Using latest edition of Zotero


    Item Type: Book
    Author: Shaw, Napier
    Title: Manual of Meteorology
    Place: Cambridge
    Publisher: Cambridge University Press
    Short Title: Manual
    Extra: Issued: 1927/1931

    Preferences>Cite>Styles>Style Preview... produces, eg. under Chicago 17th (full note):

    Shaw, Napier. Manual of Meteorology. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, n.d.

    Checked no spaces have snuck in at start of fields.
  • This was solved by deleting Better Bibtex. Not sure why.
  • Please lodge an error report on the Better BibTeX repo. If BBT does this, I want to fix it.
  • I cannot reproduce this from the description above. For me the date range shows as expected.
