Line breaks are a very delicate, fragile and complex matter. If you have problems with your line breaking I would suggest trying the following solutions in the order listed here. The package microtype can often help with line breaks and other micro-typographic features. It cannot help with all problems, the issue in the MWE it is well able to resolve. ...

I solved the problem, I don't know why but for some reason this small snippet in my main document caused the error: \defbibentryset{ref}{ref1,ref2}

I have changed the examples to use German instead of French to illustrate a point below. You can load biblatex with the language option and specify english. By default this option is set to autobib and changes the language according to the langid field of the entry (what is changed in this case is controlled via the autolang option). So ...

I don't understand why you are using all this internal patching. Don't you get your output with something like this: \documentclass[11pt,letterpaper,roman]{moderncv} % moderncv themes \moderncvstyle{classic} \moderncvcolor{blue} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}% character \usepackage{csquotes} %---------------------Bibliography and ...

During the processing and sorting biber converts a number commands for accented chars to "glyph + combining accent", in you case "i + COMBINING GRAVE ACCENT (U+0300)". pdflatex can't handle such "combining accents" and so you get an utf8-inputenc error. Unlike most other inputenc errors you can't correct it, you could only suppress the accent completly. ...

Using the unicode characters rather than LaTeX macros is more reliable in my experience. For example, the following compiles without error: \begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib} @unpublished{exampletwo, author = {Last-name, Firstname and lname, En\'{e}as}, booktitle = {In Review}, title = {{Pick a Title}} } @inproceedings{exampleone, author = {Jones, Jim and ...

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
