Possible to suppress short title if there is no subsequent citation


I'm wondering if there is a way to suppress the short title at the end of a citation if that citation is the only reference to a particular source?

According to the Canadian guide to uniform legal citation, the only time that a citation is supposed to have a short title in brackets at the end is when that same source is referenced more than once.

I know that it is possible to check for the position of "first", but I'm wondering if there is a way to check for "first with subsequent citation".

Thank you!
  • sorry, not possible, not sure if we'll add it. I know the use case, but it's fairly involved in terms of implementation I think.
  • No problem. Currently, I get around this using Juris-M's "hereinafter" value, which is provided on a document-to-document basis, meaning I can choose to specify whether there should be a short title or not. I was just wondering if it was possible to do in CSL and I just didn't know how.
