I am writing scientific texts and use the bibliography feature in LibreOffice 3.6 writer. Otherwise it works quite well, but there is one problem:
In the text itself, writer will insert the short name that I give for some reference, for example “Jones et al. ”. Now, for some journals I need to format part of this short name text to italics, for instance “Jones et al.”, but leave “” in non-italics. I can see that I can change the whole grey field with “Jones et al. ” to some other format (like italics), simply by selecting it and using the normal format tool. But I cannot see a way to do that with part of the field, as required here?
Any help would be highly appreciated!
