Intext referencing

There are two ways to insert intext references:

1. Life is full of compromises ( Jack, 2010)

2. Jack (2010) states that life is full of compromises.

When I use the insert citation option, I can insert citations like in the first example but not the second one, how do I insert citations like the second one?

RE: Intext referencing

Hi Sanju,

Thank you for using the forum to ask a question.

Insert the citation as for the first example.
Right click on the citation and choose edit citation.
In the options to Suppress, tick Author.
This should leave you with (2010).

Kind regards
