Support for doubled last names

I am really struggling to cite (within text) authors who have doubled last names (without a hyphen), such as 'De Leener'. It looks like the Papers App has no way of knowing which are the first and which are the last names, and so I am having to manually fix those with doubled last names. Is there a way to incorporate this into the app please?? Thanks!

I just noticed the same problem. I try to cite "van den Broeke", but it does not appear correctly in the bibliography, as in the following example:


Broeke EN van den, Mouraux A. Enhanced brain responses to C-fiber input in the area of secondary hyperalgesia induced by high-frequency electrical stimulation of the skin. J Neurophysiol 2014; 112: 2059–66


which should read:


van den Broeke EN, Mouraux A. Enhanced brain responses to C-fiber input in the area of secondary hyperalgesia induced by high-frequency electrical stimulation of the skin. J Neurophysiol 2014; 112: 2059–66


In the old Papers app there was a specific way to introduce the names, which didn't present the issue: Last name, First Name. 


Is there a way to make Readcube Papers correctly cite these names?

I am having a similar issue, but with a name with a suffix. Papers is treating the suffix as the last name and I can't figure out how to change that. 


e.g. Taft, S. J. & III, R. W. H. Aspects of the Larval Development of Ophthalmophagus sp. (Trematoda: Cyclocoelidae). The Journal of Parasitology 64, 597–600 (1978).


Which should be:

Taft, S. J. & Heard III, R. W. Aspects of the Larval Development of Ophthalmophagus sp. (Trematoda: Cyclocoelidae). The Journal of Parasitology 64, 597–600 (1978).

Still searching for a solution to this problem. It was easy in Papers 3 to customize last names so that they appeared correctly. This no longer seems to be the case in ReadCube Papers.
