For xelatex use \documentclass[12pt, a4paper, DIV=calc]{scrbook} %\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} % output font encoding %\usepackage{lmodern, textcomp} % beautiful fonts (latin modern). %\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} % input language. Required only for pdfLaTeX. \usepackage{fontspec} ...

This is a change in biber 2.1 with \i in particular. Now biber properly encodes this as a dotless i (ı - 0x0131) with a combining accent. Even though biber always converts to precomposed (NFC) form on output and is therefore generally as friendly as possible to inputenc, there is no precomposed form of this combination. There is a precomposed form for a ...

run biber with biber --output-safechars <file>

Writing Rodr{\'{\i}}guez seems needlessly complicated. I suggest you write Rodr{\'i}guez instead. Not only is it easier to do so, it also makes the biber/inputenc issue go away automatically. Incidentally, outside the bib file, i.e., in the body of tex file, I'd write Rodr\'iguez.

Another solution is: {\ss} instead of ß or ss.

The solution above relies on the begentry bibmacro being executed in each bibliography driver as is custom with the standard styles (and I would have thought with most custom styles as well). The biblatex-chicago styles do not issue begentry at the beginning of each entry (they do use finentry at the end though, as do all the standard styles). Luckily ...

I have seen the same message when typesetting a tex file when using TeXShop. Cannot find control file something.bcf did you pass the "backend=biber" option to BibLaTeX? The message occurs when the tex file or other configuration files specify one BibTeX engine while TeXShop specifies another. For example if the Engine settings in TeXShop prefs ...

By default, biblatex's numeric styles use a authortite-flavoured bibliography style. But with a little trick we can make it use a authoryear one. For this, use citestyle=numeric-comp, bibstyle=authoryear, as optional argument to biblatex and add \makeatletter \input{numeric.bbx} \makeatother to your preamble. Then the numeric bibstyle is applied to ...

Your biblatex is too old. Probably you would need to run the user update manager to update it. As the miktex repositories are not online: either downgrade biber to version 1.9: https://sourceforge.net/projects/biblatex-biber/files/biblatex-biber/. Or update biblatex: Get from a CTAN mirror the biblatex miktex packages: ...

I found a solution. I have not validated beyond the fact that, by doing these things, I got it to work. It's possible there are extraneous steps, and any improvements are welcomed. First, I made sure that my MikTex was up to date (and thus had Biber installed). Second, I installed the latexmk package using the Package Manager. Third, I added an ...

If you typeset directly the í, it runs fine: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex} \bibliography{test.bib} \usepackage{filecontents} % \begin{filecontents}{test.bib} @article{rodr, author = {Rodríguez, A}, year = {1999} } \end{filecontents} \begin{document} ...

The code you've posted, made into an MWE, does not produce the issue you are describing. \documentclass[letterpaper, 11pt, twoside, openright]{book} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[american]{babel} \usepackage{csquotes} \usepackage[style=apa, language=american, backend=biber, natbib=true, ...
