Excluding bibentry items from citation numbering

Postby zgf » Wed Feb 07, 2018 4:02 pm

How to exclude bibentry items from the citation numbering scheme and references? I would like to do the following:

  1. \bibentry{einstein05}
  2. %and after that:
  3. \cite{bohr99}

I expect that Bohr is cited as [1] in the text and only his paper is listed in the References.

Can you Show with the help of a minimal working example, where you have trouble?
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

welcome to the forum!

I would do it that way:


That means, simply commenting it out... since you said, it should not have any visible effect. No number, and no appearance in the list of references. Then there's also no reason for a bibliography entry that's never used in the document. Or did I miss something?
