This issue has been fixed in TeXLive sources. See this commit. So wait for texlive 2014 or build xetex from source.

The following does the trick: \AtNextCitekey{\defcounter{maxnames}{1}}\citet{ref1}

If you don't need to have natbib=true then the command \citeauthor* does exactly that. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[style=authoryear-comp, backend=biber, sorting=nyt, autolang=hyphen]{biblatex} \begin{filecontents}{literature.bib} @ARTICLE{ref1, AUTHOR = {AuthorA, A. and AuthorB, B.}, JOURNALTITLE = {{Journal of Testing}}, PAGES = {1--2}, ...

Your problem is not arising due to the citation, but only stems from the uses of superscripts. Whenever superscripts are used, they are intended to be short. Hence line breaks are neither nice nor possible. The technical reason for this is, that LaTeX will wrap the text given in \superscript{} into a box, which is the raised. This box is the treated like ...

I originally thought you could change the formatting by patching the \NAT@split macro where the \NAT@date macro is set. The problem with this is that the \NAT@date macro is used in conditionals so it doesn't have the right form if you patch it. This means you need to patch where the \NAT@date macro is used. the \NAT@date macro is used in a number of places ...

The natbib option for biblatex causes the blx-natbib.def file to be loaded and not much else. There may be some styles that do different things depending on if the natbib option has been used, but the authoryear style does not seem to care. The blx-natbib.def file defines a handful of macros to recreate natbib citation commands, but it does not disable any ...

You seem to be having trouble in compiling a latex file with bibliography using natbib. IF this is the real issue, then please note the following: 1) With your current MWE example, please keep the file myrefbibfile.bib in the same folder as your manuscript .tex file 2) To compile, follow this sequence: Run latex, the run bibtex and then run latex twice. So ...

The way described in Ingmar's answer is the preferred one, but you don't get a separating comma between authors when you have only two of them. I would follow that way, but if you really want a comma to separate them, you have to enclose the comma in braces, so that BibTeX considers it as normal text, i.e. @Book{williamson, author={David P Williamson{,} ...

Authors are cited Lastname, First. Use "and" with multiple authors, like so: @Book{williamson, author={Williamson, David P and Shmoys, David B}, year = {2010}, title = {The Design of Approximation Algorithms}, publisher = {Cambridge University Press}, }

With biblatex and its natbib compatibility option, you may use \citep for "standard" citations in parentheses. For the case specified in your question, you have to resort to \parencites. See section 3.7.3 of the biblatex manual for details. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[style=authoryear,natbib=true]{biblatex} \usepackage{filecontents} ...

This can also happen if one of the BibTeX entries is missing the label (shortcode). One possible scenario is when the bibliography is exported from e.g. EndNote and the label for the entry has not been set in EndNote. (This happened to me.)

The revtex class loads the natbib package with sort&compress option, that is for numerical citations. If you want an author-year citation in a revtex document, you need to set the citation style for natbib, this can be done adding \setcitestyle{authoryear}, using this command also you can set the whole style of a citation. ...

The citation style you are looking for is called author-year. It's common in the humanities. If you're using biblatex, you want to use the apalike style. If you're using plain old bibtex, you probably want to start with the apacite package.

The conjunctions used between author names are defined by the bibliography style in use -- in your case, plainnat. Fortunately, changing "and" to "&" (or "en") isn't too difficult: Locate the file plainnat.bst in your TeX distribution and make a copy of that file. Call this copy, say, myplainnat.bst. (Don't edit an original file of the TeX distribution ...

You are using hyperref. This package provides the option backref with is explained as: In addition, the hyperindex option (see below) attempts to make items in the index by hyperlinked back to the text, and the option backref inserts extra ‘back’ links into the bibliography for each entry. So you can use: \hypersetup{backref=true}

The apalike bibliography style has been more or less unchanged since 1988. Back then, web pages didn't exist yet -- at least not as items that might be cited in bibligraphies. The entry type @misc thus doesn't recognize, and therefore blissfully ignores, fields named urldate and lastchecked. A workaround involves two steps: rename the field Lastchecked ...

If you're writing the bibliography yourself, then you need to add a label for each item. Right click the grey box in the reference list where the citation key is written - highlighted by the red ellipse in the screenshot below - and choose Settings (the only option). In the Label field write authorname(year) without a space before the parenthesis, e.g. ...

Assume you have a well-formed bib file. It sounds as if you have already inserted a BibTex Generated Bibliography into your document (this is Torbjorn's question). Right click on the that field in your document and select settings. From the Style dropdown box, select unstr (there may be others, but at least this one should get you started). OK and close. ...

UPDATE 2: Peter Breitenlohner said: The solution is probably a modified definition of 'potentially hyphenatable part' in tex.web ([40] Pre-hyphenation). \hyphenation{first-word next-word last-word} \showhyphens{start firstword nextword nextword lastword end} \bye This does not seem to be bidi's problem but etex's problem. Try this (without ...
