I have tried to enter a woman's name including her maiden name in parentheses into a "name"-type field into sources using a number of templates e.g. both of the Correspondence templates, "Books, Basic Format" template and "Books, General (Author(s) known)" template to name just a few. I entered Jane (Smith) Johnson as the Author in the Book, Basic Format template and RM7 changed the parentheses into quotation marks resulting in this:
Jane "Smith" Johnson, Tall Tales (N.p.: n.p., n.d.).
Johnson, Tall Tales.
Johnson, Jane "Smith". Tall Tales. N.p.: n.p., n.d..
If I put a comma in front of the name like this ,Jane (Smith) Johnson the footnote works but the short footnote and bibliography go crazy, like this:
Jane (Smith) Johnson, Tall Tales (N.p.: n.p., n.d.).
, Tall Tales.
, Jane (Smith) Johnson. Tall Tales. N.p.: n.p., n.d..
I have tried this on similar fields in a number of templates with the same results. I also tried this on both my laptop and my desktop (both use Windows 10) in case it was my keyboard. I recently got both a new desktop and laptop. No joy!! Help please!! Is my software corrupt or is this happening to everyone?
