In a book project, I have a specific format definition for journal articles: title volume (year), issue, page (if exists as option to the cite command).

I want to omit the page range from journal article citations in the text, but not in the bibliography. That's what the biblatex option citepages=suppress is for, I thought. But somehow biblatex inserts an unnecessary space after the issue number. The bibliography is correct! Also if I use citepages=separate the citation format is correct, but of course with the page range I do not want. See MWE.

I tried tweaking the format definition but this is a bit beyond my biblatex finetunig skills. I would be grateful for a hint how to adapt my MWE.

MWE:

This is simply a case of a forgotten % in the redefinition of journal+issuetitle, specifically in the line with \printfield{eid}.

Things look as expected with the following definition

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[german=guillemets]{csquotes}

\usepackage[backend=biber,
  style=verbose-inote, sorting=nyt,
  citepages=suppress,
  isbn=false,doi=false,url=false,eprint=false,
  date=short]{biblatex}

%Zeitschriftenformat: Titel Vol. (date), Nr., Seiten
\renewbibmacro*{journal+issuetitle}{%
  \usebibmacro{journal}%
  \setunit*{\addspace}%
  \iffieldundef{series}
    {}
    {\newunit
     \printfield{series}%
     \setunit{\addspace}}%
  \printfield{volume}%
  \setunit{\addspace}%
  \usebibmacro{issue+date}%
  \setunit{\addcomma\space}%
  \printfield{number}%
  \setunit{\addcolon\space}%
  \usebibmacro{issue}%
  \setunit{\addcomma\space}%
  \printfield{eid}%
  \newunit}


\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@Article{Article2009,
  author     = {Author, An},
  title      = {Articletitle},
  journal    = {Journal},
  pages      = {1-14},
  volume     = {3},
  year       = {2009},
  number     = {5},
}
\end{filecontents}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}

\begin{document}
Text.\footcite[4]{Article2009} 

\printbibliography
\end{document}

An Author. “Articletitle”. In: Journal 3 (2009), 5, p. 4.
