 The cite options windows has a drop-down list of the different locator types ("​Page"​ is the default), and a text box in which you can enter the locator value (e.g. "​4-7"​).

 +You can also add page numbers from the keyboard as you insert citations. After you've selected an item and see the author'​s name in a blue bubble, simply type "​p.34"​ or similar, and the page number will be added to the citation.

 Any text in the prefix and suffix fields can be formatted with the HTML tags <i> (for italics), <b> (bold), <sub> (subscript),​ and <sup> (superscript).

 +Prefixes and suffixes can be applied to each item in a citation to create complex citations. For example: "(see Smith 1776 for the classic example; Marx 1867 presents and alternate view)"​. Modifying citations by entering text into the Prefix and Suffix fields is always preferable to directly typing in the citation fields in LibreOffice. Manual modifications will prevent Zotero from automatically updating the citation.

 +=====Editing the Bibliography===
 +
 +After you've inserted the bibliography using the “Add/Edit Bibliography” ({{:​word_integration:​zotero-toolbar-word-add-edit-bibliography-5.png?​16&​nocache&​nolink}}) button, click the button again to open the Edit Bibliography window.
 +
 +{{ :​word_processor_edit_bibliography.png?​nolink&​700 |}}
 +
 +In this window, you can add uncited sources to your bibliography (e.g., items included in a review but not cited in the paper) or remove items that are cited in text but which should not be included in the bibliography (e.g., personal communications).
 +
 +While it is also possible to edit the text or formatting of bibliography references in this window, doing so is discouraged. References edited here will not be automatically updated by Zotero if you change the data in your library. Editing references here is also somewhat unreliable; several users have reported that modifications made here sometimes do not persist when Zotero references, among other issues.
 +
 +If you need to edit items in your bibliography,​ it is best to do this as a final step before submitting the document. First, save a backup copy of the document. Then, click the "​Unlink Citations"​ button ({{:​word_integration:​zotero-toolbar-word-unlink-citations-5.png?​18&​nocache&​nolink}}) to disconnect your document from Zotero and convert all citations and the bibliography to regular text. Finally, make your adjustments to the bibliography text.
 +
 +This process can be used for a variety of minor modifications to the bibliography,​ including:
 +  * Adding asterisks * before references included in a review or meta-analysis
 +  * Setting the names of particular authors in bold, italics, or all caps
 +  * Adding annotations or comments about an item
 +  * Adding headings for bibliography subsections (e.g., primary versus secondary sources)
 +
 +**Note:** General corrections to style formatting should be made in the [[styles|CSL Citation Style]], not here. Corrections to item data should be made in your Zotero library, not here.
