 +If the style uses initials for author first/given names, rather than full names (e.g., APA style), if the label contains multiple words (e.g., "​Executive Producer"​ or "​Writer & Director"​),​ Zotero will abbreviate the words of the label after the first. To avoid this, type a "Word Joiner"​ character (Unicode U+2060, printed here between quotes: "​⁠"​) on either side of each space in the label.
