Tool to make single *.bib file compatible with both BibTeX and BibLaTeX

*.bib files for BibTeX and BibLaTeX are mostly compatible, but they have some differences. For example, BibTeX uses the journal field, but BibLaTeX uses the journaltitle field. I'm using Zotero with the Better BibLaTeX and LyZ extensions, which add BibLaTeX -compatible items to my *.bib files. But s...

Biber cannot find <filename>.bib file with OneDrive

Well after considerable additional testing & work, I finally got this to work as desired. The main point for posterity is that there seems to be a bug in LyX. If one uses Insert > List/TOC > BibTeX Bibliography > Add > Browse, LyX hangs and freezes. I timed it, and LyX was frozen from 10:35 to 1...

Biber cannot find <filename>.bib file with OneDrive

Following up my earlier post, I decided to problem-solve by isolating different issues. So I created a simple article-class document in the regular, local file system and made a small References.bib file in the same folder. I also ran Disk Utility several times and uninstalled LyX then reinstalled i...

Biber cannot find <filename>.bib file with OneDrive

Hi, I am running LyX 2.2.2 on MacOS 10.12.2 with MacTeX 2016basic installed (plus a few packages added via TeXLive). The document I am working on has several sections, so a parent folder holds common files and a master document, while each section of the document is stored in a subfolder as a child ...

British spelling throws "Undefined control sequence" error

I'm using LyX to write a paper that is typeset by LaTeX. U.S. English is the language of the paper, but a quotation has British spelling, "utilisation." LyX uses Hunspell for spell checking, and it flags this word. In the spell check dialog box, I set the word to British English, then the ...

biblatex-chicago & origdate

Is there any trick to getting biblatex-chicago to format original dates properly? According to the Chicago Manual of Style 16th ed., if one is using the author-date format, citations should have the original date in square brackets and references should have it in parentheses. To wit: Marx ([1893] 1...

Multiple formats for the same information (addresses)

Hi, I'm relatively new to LaTeX, and it's hard to believe this subject hasn't been discussed before. But I've not found any such discussion. So I'm asking it now. Take the example of a pre-publication academic paper and the author's address. For example, suppose an author of a paper is: Dr. Peorgie ...

Beamer templates and themes with LyX

I've just started using Beamer and am confused both by terminology and how to accomplish certain things in LyX. Section 6 of the Beamer class User Guide speaks of "solution templates." Section 15 speaks of "themes." I'm not sure I understand the difference. But in addition to Bea...

Possessive Citations

Using natbib, LyX currently allows citations like "Knuth (1982) wrote TeX." But it does not allow possessive citations like "Using Knuth's (1982) TeX system, ...." But this page describes how to make a new command, \posscite, that implements possessive citations in LaTeX. By incl...
