Citation issue

Postby David 007 » Wed Nov 13, 2019 11:54 am

Good morning Johannes,
Thanks for the link, I will try to switch to apacite and see.

However, I have now a new issue. I have canceled all new codes from yesterday and therefore I have configured tex maker again to work with natbib. It was only 2 steps: options, configure tex maker and in commands change biber for bibtex and in quick build select pdflatex + view pdf as it was set before. But now, after doing that, I get the following error:
found no \bibstyle command while reading file
Do you know what could it be or what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

I didn't see a \bibliographystyle command in your very first posts, else i would have suggested a suitable biblatex style.

You need something like \bibliographystyle{apalike}
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Sorry, bibliography style was with %, sorted out, was my fault.
From the two solutions provided in your last link I find much easier to install apacite with the renewcommand changing the conjunction I (catalan) for the Spanish Y. Thanks for the link!

Hello Johannes,

How does it look the following MWE:
preamble:
\usepackage{apacite}
\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\renewcommand{\BBAA}{y} % between authors in parenthetical cites and ref. list
\renewcommand{\BBAB}{y} % between authors in in-text citation
\renewcommand{\BAnd}{y} % for ``Ed. \& Trans.'' in ref. list
\begin{document}

thanks and sorry to disturb you during your working hours

I cannot really tell.
Always try out the stuff with minimal examples and see what happens.
