I have read through some related threads on this but cannot seem to find an answer that works for me. I use a custom .bst file, not natbib, and would like my in-text citations to be Author-Year in format. What I see instead upon generating the pdf is indeed Author-Year, but it is the author's full name (as in, e.g., 'David Armstrong 1981'.
What I would like to have appear is 'Armstrong 1981'. I use Lyx and when setting the citation style I have "Author-Year" selected. Things just aren't showing up that way for me in the .pdf.
