My problem is this: I use one biblatex-file as a source for a number of documents. In the biblatex-file I used shorthand in every entry. The problem is that in some documents I need to cite the references fully rather than the short form. My question: Is there something a command that I could add to my preamble in order to suppress the shorthand entry and to get full title output?

If you simply want to suppress the use of shorthands in citation commands for all entries, adding


to the preamble should do. If you have more specific requirements, please add a MWE to your question.
