How to group citations in Lyx like [1-3] instead of [1,2,3]?  Topic is solved

Postby MarkH748 » Thu Jan 09, 2014 6:38 pm

I am citing from a bibtex bibliography if that matters.

Under Document Settings -> Bibliography, I have Netbib and Numerical Selected.

I read through google that I should put "\usepackage{cite}" in the LaTeX preamble but when I do this I get the following error when trying to preview the PDF.

Can anyone suggest a fix? I apologise if it's something ridiculously obvious!

Advanced thanks,


Fixed it. Just in case anyone's wondering, I was using the elsarticle.cls with which you have to use natbib which is incompatible with the cite package.

Add this to the preamble instead.
  1. \biboptions{sort&compress}
