In the biblatex documentation, under "Entry Options", it says that entry options (like useauthor) can be set on a per type basis.

With Biber, this option is also settable on a per-type basis.

I want to set the same useauthor and useeditor options for all entries of a type (@book, @manual, @online). Is this what the quote is referring to? How do I do this?

Use \ExecuteBibliographyOptions and its optional argument. Note that "[t]he entrytype argument may be a comma-separated list of values" (manual, section 3.2.2.).





  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
  author = {Knuth, Donald E.},
  year = {1986},
  title = {The \TeX book},
