You can't have an unescaped hash sign in non-verbatim fields in your .bib file even if you hide it in a \url command, where normally it does not cause harm. URLs should best be given in the dedicated url field (which you seem to have done anyway), which can handle evil characters such as # and friends, because it uses a special verbatim mode. You can then ...

In biblatex one should specify the full name for the bibliography in \addbibresources. Thus in the MWE it should be \addbibresources{biblio.bib}. In Texpad ensure that the auto sense function is enabled, and Texpad will try to compile the appropriate number of times (also) depending on what files have been modified. Also, it would be better to avoid non ...

Rather than take an existing bst file and adjust it in various places to achieve your bibliographic formatting needs, I would like to recommend you create a new bibliography style file that immediately implements all of your formatting requirements. This is actually much less difficult to achieve than it may sound: Just run the makebst utility that's part ...

biber will (not always but quite often) convert an accent command to the decomposed unicode representation "char + combining accent". But pdflatex can't handle combining accents. So as long as you are using pdflatex you must avoid that this happens. To do this you can tell biber not to output everything in utf8 with --output-safechars and similar options ...

When I have to work on MS Word documents, I wrote my part in a LaTeX file as usual (and enjoy my emacs+AUCTeX shortcuts). Then I convert the document using pandoc to odt and copy/paste my document into the official one (usually a .docx). It probably possible to convert directly to Docx (pandoc seems to support it) The big avantage of pandoc is it can take ...

You just need to change the format. Insert these lines into your preamble or, better yet, into biblatex.cfg (just create such a file in your working directory if it doesn't exist yet): \DeclareFieldFormat{title}{\textbf{#1}} \DeclareFieldFormat{citetitle}{\textbf{#1}} The first line will change the title in the bibliography, the second in citations. You ...

You can create a conditional and test it. \newif\ifbibtexbackend \bibtexbackendfalse \ifbibtexbackend \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} \else \usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex} \fi As I say, I don't see the point as I think % uncomment this line and comment the next to use the BibTeX backend %\usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} ...

To get better hyphenated urls you can load package url with the line: \usepackage[hyphens]{url} In your given code are several errors. I corrected them in the following MWE. Please the the comments in the code. < ======= marks the main changings. If you use an own style it is important to use one name for it. I used file ownstyle.bbx and therefore I ...

You also can add the fields: keywords={mypapers}, keywords={mypreprints} to your papers and preprints in the .bib file. Then \printbibliography[title={Published papers}, keyword=mypapers, heading=subbibliography] \printbibliography[title={Preprints}, keyword=mypreprints, heading=subbibliography] \printbibliography[title={References}, ...

Here is a simple solution requiring some manual work (you have to define what are your papers). You create a category for your papers \DeclareBibliographyCategory{mine} and you populate it with \addtocategory{mine}{ mypaper1, mypaper2, ... } Then you use: \printbibliography[title={Published papers}, type=article, heading=subbibliography, ...

The easiest solution is probably pubstate = {\autocap{u}npublished} But you can also use the localisation module with \NewBibliographyString{unpublished} \DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{unpublished = {unpublished}} In that case you can translate "unpublished" into other languages while still having only unpubslished in the pubstate field. ...

Currently I am converting my latex generated pdf as Word documents. I use the pdf export function in Adobe reader to convert the pdf into word files. It works better than using LaTex2RTF tools.
