In my opinion year is the right field. Apart from my opinion, if you want your "circa " years to be computed as normal ones by the sorting processor, add the following lines in your preamble: \DeclareSourcemap{ \maps[datatype=bibtex]{ \map[overwrite=false]{ \step[fieldsource=year] \step[fieldset=sortyear, origfieldval, final] ...

I believe you have two options to avoid the overfull line. Don't make the space before \citep{Fillingham1997} unbreakable, i.e., replace ~ with a plain space, . This will result in the complete string "(Fillingham, 1997)" showing up at the start of the following line. Making the space immediately before the citation callout unbreakable is useful if a ...

This answers the bibliography part. For the glossary part take a look at Glossary per chapter or section. Supposing your two volumes are two \parts, add the option refsection=part when loading biblatex and issue \printbibliography[section=1] at the end of the first volume and \printbibliography[section=2] at the end of the second volume. If your ...

We can modify the labelalpha-template to do this \DeclareLabelalphaTemplate{ \labelelement{ \field[final]{shorthand} \field{label} \field[names=1]{labelname} } \labelelement{ \field[strwidth=2,strside=right]{year} } } Where the important change is in the fifth line: we only print one labelname (the first), but that to its full ...

Just issue a \renewcommand*{\mkbibnamelast}{\textsc} in the preamble. The problem was arising because French, by default, enables small caps for author's last names, English, on the other hand, does no such thing. If the language in the bibliography is switched using autolang=other the default language "extras" are also changed, this lead to only the ...

Regarding the change from "ed. by" to "(ed.). This has changed since the accepted answer was posted. This gets very messy but here is what I gathered so far. BTW, I highly recommend placing this stuff in your home directory and never changing anything that is installed. The location for these files is ~/texmf/tex/latex/biblatex. The overall goal is to ...

This should help, although I didn't test it: \DeclareLabelalphaTemplate{ \labelelement{ \field[{labelname} } \labelelement{ \field[strwidth=2,strside=right]{labelyear} } } See details in the Sec. 4.5.4. "Labels" of the biblatex manual.

The new version 1.16.0 of eledmac (now in CTAN) solves this issue.

It can be done removing sorting=none option when loading biblatex and adding the following lines in your preamble (see http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/37850/27635 for reference): \AtDataInput{% \csnumgdef{entrycount:\strfield{prefixnumber}}{% \csuse{entrycount:\strfield{prefixnumber}}+1}} \DeclareFieldFormat{labelnumber}{\mkbibdesc{#1}} ...
