# Workaround for TexShop and multibib

It looks there is a problem with TexShop and multibib package. multibib package expects that you do bibtex xxx where xxx is your own newcites. However, when using TexShop it looks like it only does it for the main document. Therefore, the only way I have to make it work is to do it from command line (notice the bibtex xxx):

 pdflatex main
bibtex main
bibtex xxx
pdflatex main
pdflatex main


Do you know a workaround I can do so that I can latex without problem in any IDE?

Thanks!

you could write an apple-script which applies bibtex to the desired files or simply use biblatex – bloodworks Jun 29 '12 at 13:04
@bloodworks yes, I could do that. In fact, I already did a .sh that does that for me. Problem is I have several people working in the same project so I wanted to know if there was a way to solve the problem for all of us using whatever IDE/tool. – Mariano Martinez Peck Jun 29 '12 at 20:22

The latexmk engine handles multibib, I think. If you don't have the latexmk Engine installed, go to ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ and move the .engine files from the Inactive/Latexmk folder to the Engines folder.
% !TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk
