Trackchange for latex on sourceforge seems to have a problem with citations.

\change{text 1 \cite{Fels\_81}pad1}{text2 \cite{Fels\_81} pad2}

creates a problem due to the brackets encountered. Is there a work around to this?

It would be best to provide a full minimal example, so that we know for example where \change comes from. – Joseph Wright Mar 27 '11 at 8:52

Try enclosing the \cite commands inside curly braces:

\change{text 1 {\cite{Fels\_81}}pad1}{text2 {\cite{Fels\_81}} pad2}

I would suggest you not to use underscores in the argument of \cite. I would use something like Fels-81 instead of Fels\_81; the latter produced some errors in the example I built to test the problem; of course, you'll have to change the keys used in your bibliographical entries accordingly.

Yes, definitive try to avoid _ in the cite key. – Martin Scharrer Mar 27 '11 at 9:32
