In the Edit component, you can enter Group suffixes. Here you can type the text that appears after an editor or multiple editors.

If you want the word "In" to appear before the editor names, you can enter it as group prefix. However, it often makes more sense to add it as a new Text element. Then, "In" will appear before the title even if the Edited book does not have editors.


Use Text elements for parentheses that you want to place around one or more components.
