By default, CiteRight only generates a complete citation when you cite a case for the first time. In subsequent references to a case, CiteRight will automatically use a short form of the name of the case, ibid, and supra. This article will show you how to modify those settings.
Remember that you can create a short form for a style of cause by selecting a case in the MS Word add-in and clicking "Modify." In the "Short Form" field, enter a shortened version of the case name.
To change the preferences around ibid, supra and short forms, simply click on "Preferences" in the ribbon of the CiteRight tab and go to the "Citations" tab. Under the "Formats" section, you can select or deselect these options.
When short form, ibid and supra are all checked:
- The first reference to a case will include the full style of cause
- Subsequent references to the same case will use ibid, or, if the subsequent reference does not come immediately after the first, the short form name of the case with supra
When short form, ibid and supra are all unchecked:
- CiteRight will use the complete citation, including the full style of cause, for every reference to a particular case.
