as a long term user, I am excited to see how Manuscripts is developing. I have been “playing around” with the beta and think that it just has one major flaw that (at least for researchers in the humanities) makes it difficult to use the app. As far as I could see one cannot edit citations. What I mean is the following. Whenever I add a citation ( let’s say the author is someone called Miller and the article was published in 2012) I get it like this (Miller, 2012). But I have no way to edit the citation. What I need is that I can edit the citation like:
- Miller (2012) states that…
- Miller says that: “…” (2012, p.25)
Because when using a quote I have to state the page number of my quotation. But this is not possible in Manuscripts.io as for now. But for the humanities this way of citing is crucial.
I’d love to use Manuscripts again, but unless this function is available it makes no sense for me at this point, unfortunately.
