How do I suppress the leading space on a citation so that I get ([1],[2]) instead of ( [1],[2]) on a single instance of cite? The only answer I've seen so far is to


but that sets the option for all citations. I tried


and it didn't work.

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – egreg Jan 30 '13 at 22:44

The option noadjust is defined as

 \DeclareOption{noadjust}{\let\cite@adjust\@empty}% Don't change spaces

So try making this assignemnt in a group (untested since you do not have MWE):



\cite{one}, \noadjustcite{two,three}...
