By default, all new projects include the #EDITION field along with the title of the book as #TITLE_EDITION. You can modify existing projects to include the edition field.

The reference that is produced lists the Source (book title), Edition (value entered) edition. The Edition field may be a max of 7 characters in length.

If the Edition field is left blank, only the book title is listed in the reference that is produced.

Alternately, you can change the book reference to #TITLE (#EDITION).

The reference lists the Source (book title) Edition (value entered).

If the Edition field is left blank, the book title is listed with an empty set of parentheses for edition in the reference that is produced.

The book reference Edition field will appear on all pages where references are displayed.

See the 5.1.2.4 References Tab topic for details.
