Howdy Cary and Ayie,

I'm McLovin' the Magic Citations feature in Papers. How would I do the following…

I have a book that I am referencing several times. Each time, I am referencing different pages. So my references should look like…

Exciting Book Name, pp. 24-58


Exciting Book Name, pp. 67-79

How do I do that in Papers? I've got the book, itself, in Papers. But when I reference it, I can't change the page numbers specifically referenced in each instance.

Thank you,

    Hi Bill

    Thank you for getting in touch. To add page numbers to your citations you will have to use a 'modifier'. You can find instructions on this here:

    Citations Modifiers: Prefix, Suffix, Page Number, Author/Year Suppression in Papers for mac

    Hope this helps.
    Best Wishes,
