To print a list of references that have not been cited you can create a check that filters out the cited one (you have to enable the citetracker feature, e.g., \usepackage[citetracker=true]{biblatex}). The check can be created as follows \defbibcheck{uncited}{ \ifciteseen {\skipentry} {} } and then put a \nocite{*} in the document, and use ...

It is in no way discouraged to comment any files you might have written. What you came across is a slight discrepancy in the handling of comments, or if you will a disagreement about what constitutes a comment. According to btxdoc, ยง4, item 7, p. 13 BibTeX allows in the database files any comment that's not within an entry. If you want to comment out an ...

In your case the problem was using the 'Use a "build" subdirectory for output files option' of your editor. When Biber is invoked it looks for the .bcf file (in fact, Biber "compiles" the .bcf). But if the .bcf file has been moved to another subdirectory Biber is unaware of, Biber cannot find the file. For exactly this reason Biber has the --output-directory ...

biber sorting is quite complicated. It doesn't sort using just a key but uses an array of keys defined by the sorting specification. You can't reliably do real multi-field sorting with just one string to compare. You can see the sorting object used for each entry if you run biber with --debug and then check the .blg file for the string: DEBUG - Sorting ...

The only thing we are missing from language=auto and autolang=other is that they neglect to wrap the label in the bibliography into foreignlanguage or otherlanguage. That is easily fixed with the following definition \DeclareFieldFormat{labelalpha}{% \iffieldundef{langid} {#1} {\foreignlanguage{\thefield{langid}}{#1}}% } This does exactly what ...

You can use a refcontext: \documentclass[]{scrartcl} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[sorting=none]{biblatex} \addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib} \begin{document} \cite{shore}\cite{aksin} \printbibliography \begin{refcontext}[sorting=nty] \cite{shore}\cite{aksin} \printbibliography \end{refcontext} \end{document}

I think that the best way to do this is to coordinate the publisher fields with 'and' and separately coordinate the location fields with 'and' in your .bib entry (i.e., the second option). For example, in the standard authoryear style, the location precedes the publisher and the two are separated by a colon. If you choose to eliminate the location field, ...

biber is an external program which you can run at the command prompt (in a terminal window), typing the command biber documentname or within your editor, if your LaTeX editor provides it. An editor explanation with a lot of screenshots is here, in German: Wie verwende ich biber in meinem Editor. Luckily, there are a lot of screenshots, so perhaps you ...

Biber 2.2 DEV is now updated on SourceForge with an updated PAR::Packer module which is supposed to fix this. Now, biber should be able to unpack itself properly again after any OS tmp cache cleanup.
