To Edit a Citation
In the MLA style, if you reference the author’s name in the text, you should not list
it again in the parenthetical citation. Instead, just list the page number in the citation. The
following steps edit the citation, suppressing the author but displaying the page numbers.
1 If necessary, click somewhere in the citation to be edited, in this case (Podpora), to select
the citation and display the Citation Options box arrow.
2 Click the Citation Options box arrow to display the Citation Options menu.
3 Click Edit Citation on the Citation Options menu to display the Edit Citation dialog box.
4 Type 79-82 in the Pages text box.
5 Click the Author check box to place a check mark in it (Figure 2–44).
6 Click the OK button to close the dialog box, remove the author name from the citation in
the footnote, and add page numbers to the citation.
