# Sort but do not compress numeric citations in BibLaTeX

I'd like to have a citation style somewhat in between numeric and numeric-comp. To take the example from the documentation, when numeric produces [8, 3, 1, 7, 2] and numeric-comp produces [1–3, 7, 8], I would like to see [1, 2, 3, 7, 8]. As the only difference between the two styles seems to be sortcites=true and I can't find something like compresscites, I'm a bit lost even though this seems so trivial.

The numeric-comp style includes code for the compression, so you should load numeric and set sortcites yourself:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[backend=bibtex,style=numeric,sortcites]{biblatex}
\begin{document}
\cite{knuth:ct:b}
\cite{sigfridsson}
\cite{worman}
\cite{nietzsche:historie}
\cite{almendro}
\cite{kowalik}
\cite{loh}
\cite{kowalik,loh,almendro}
\printbibliography
\end{document}

I should have thought of testing this :/ Thank you for the MWE, too! –  Christian Jun 28 '12 at 9:39
