Suggestion #1: your citekey isn't a work of art; just pick something
simple and use it.
Suggestion #2: use %u0 at the end, instead of limiting it to a single
Finally, if you really need this form of citekey, you will have to
write a script hook to create it yourself. You can access the format
parsing from AppleScript, so that may be helpful.
