Searching reference in the "Add/Edit citation" with Word, nonEnglish character wouldn't work unless delete the last character.

    I assume that has to do with the input method you're using. Can you try with a different input method? I would guess that even cutting and pasting the last character probably works?
  • Cutting and pasting works. The input method I used is the default Chinese input method on Windows 11. Users always use the default input method in Windows 11.

    Can you share the exact steps to reproduce this? I.e., saving this specific item to the library (or copy/paste this particular string into a Title field), trigger Add/Edit Citation, type these specific keys on the keyboard with the Chinese input method…

    1. Save a Chinese reference to the library,
    2. In MS Word, trigger Add/Edit Citation,
    3. Input the Chinese characters by default input method on Window 11,
    4. There is non reference,
    5. Delete the last character and the reference shows

    I hope I have expressed the detailed steps.
  • No, I get that — I watched the video. I'm asking for the exact steps I can take to reproduce it. Literally what item do I need to save to my library and what keys do I need to press on the keyboard to reproduce the problem.

    Add this article:!AkYaWBjatjEIgbotlgnfFxmUDf8T9A?e=ul1b4Z
    And type "tongweisu" by Chinese pinyin input method on Windows 11 will show "同位素" in the Add/Edit Citation box and you won't see this article but if you then delete the last character "素", the reference will show.
