-All Creator roles (Director, Producer, Scriptwriter,​ etc.) can also be labelled by entering the names using the default ''​author''​ role for the item (//​Performer//​ for Audio Recording, //​Podcaster//​ for Podcast, and //​Director//​ for Film, Radio Broadcast, TV Broadcast, and Video Recording) and adding the appropriate labels in parentheses after the authors'​ first names or last names as appropriate for your citation style—e.g.,​ MacNaughton || Ian (Producer) for APA style. Note that the labels will be rendered verbatim in citations; enter abbreviated terms (e.g., "​Prod."​) here as needed.+All Creator roles (Director, Producer, Scriptwriter,​ etc.) can also be labelled by entering the names using the default ''​author''​ role for the item (//​Performer//​ for Audio Recording, //​Podcaster//​ for Podcast, and //​Director//​ for Film, Radio Broadcast, TV Broadcast, and Video Recording) and adding the appropriate labels in parentheses after the authors'​ first names or last names as appropriate for your citation style—e.g.,​ MacNaughton || Ian (Producer) for APA style.

 +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.
